published 4 months ago by Dr. Melissa West - Yoga Teacher - Namaste Yoga

Gentle Beginner Yoga Day 12 of our 30 Day Beginner Yoga Challenge is a 10 minute gentle beginner yoga class that is hand free, wrist free, kneeling free, prop free, and inversion free. We will begin with some centering to bring awareness to our breath with one hand on your belly and one hand on your heart center. Some eye yoga will release the tension from your eyes, giving you some relief from screen time. Gentle yoga poses like knee to chest pose, easy twist and butterfly pose will release your low back. There are also some neck releases to gently release tension from your neck and shoulders. We will finish our short yoga class with a poem on gentleness by Sri Chinmoy You can do this class if you have never done a yoga class before in your life. I will give you slow, easy to follow, step-by-step instructions and tell you exactly how to get in and out of each and every pose. Detailed instructions will be given for even the most basic poses and how to breathe. You will be given lots of cues of how to pay attention to your body and where to feel the effects of the yoga poses. You do not have to be athletic, flexible, strong, balanced, skinny or coordinated to do this class. The slow, step-by-step instructions will give you the confidence to let go of your self-judgment and stay focused with commitment and motivation.
