Beginner Yoga for Digestion This beginner yoga class for digestion is day 18 of our beginner yoga challenge. All the beginner yoga poses in this class are hand free, wrist free, knee free, and prop free. We will begin this class by tuning into our digestive system and allowing it to relax and soften. Knee to chest pose will release constipation by pressing on the ascending and descending colon. Bananasana will lengthen and relax your digestive system. When we take the time to attend to our digestive system with yoga we are focusing on digesting all of life, take in what you need - nutrients, support, relationships, release what you don’t need. Lunge pose with rotation and opening both compresses and relaxes your digestive system. We will finish with a knee down twist that will massage your digestive system. In Savasana I will read you a poem called Sunset by Rainer Maria Rilke 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.
