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

Yoga for Posture Day 14 of our beginner yoga challenge is a yoga class for posture which is kneeling free, prop free and inversion free. This beginner yoga class has many beginner yoga poses to open up your chest and strengthen the muscles along the back of your body to improve your posture. We will begin with bridge pose to open your chest and strengthen your glutes and legs. Locust pose is another pose that strengthens your back body while opening up your chest. Boat pose will strengthen your core and alternatives will be given if you have back issues. We will practice a variation of warrior one from standing with chest opening arms and then cobra pose is another pose to open your chest and strengthen your back. This pose is a perfect antidote to screen time and sitting. It will boost your confidence. Our poem today is called The Journey In by David Whyte. 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.
