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

How to Breathe Day 15 of our beginner yoga challenge is a beginner yoga class on how to breathe. This beginner yoga class is an inversion free and prop free yoga class. We will begin with some reclined centering to bring some awareness to breath movement in your belly. Throughout the class we will open up your thoracic area with side bends and gentle backbends. Our poses today are bananasana which is a side bend. In cat pose we will circle our ribs to bring awareness to your diaphragm. We will do a simple and dynamic variation on gate pose to open up your breath. When we come to standing we will continue with the side bends with side angle pose and reverse warrior. In Goddess Victory squat we will bring awareness to your diaphragm again with qi belt breathing. Our poem today is On Change by Jeff Foster. 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.
