10 Min No Mat Beginner Yoga | 30 Day Beginner Yoga Challenge | Day 25

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

No Mat No yoga mat? No problem! This beginner yoga class is a hand free, wrist free, kneeling free, prop free, inversion free and mat free class! This is day 25 of our beginner yoga challenge. We will start with a seated centering. If you are in a park you can lie down on the grass, or sit on a park bench. From there we will do boat pose to strengthen your abdominals. If you have back problems, please take an abdominal curl instead. :) Most of this class is done standing with tree pose, warrior two, goddess victory squat, and breath of joy. We will return to seated for an easy twist. This one is great to do sitting in a chair as well. Our poem today is: Draw alongside the silence of stone by John O'Donohue 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. May this yoga class be of benefit to all beings.
