One of the best things about yoga is that anyone can do it, anywhere! All you need is a mat or a towel, and your body. There is no better time than now to start!
We have created an awesome 30-day yoga challenge that is perfect for beginners! Every Sunday, we will release a blog post with 7 new yoga poses, one for each day of the week.
Starting on Monday, try out the first pose and see how it feels and sit in it for as long as you wish. On Tuesday, do the first pose, then add the second pose to your sequence. Keep adding a pose every day of the week until you have a 7-pose sequence on Sunday.
Repeat this routine every week with the new poses we release until you are left with a full 28-pose sequence that will resemble a yoga class!
Let’s get started with week 1!
*If you have knee problems, add another towel or fold your mat directly beneath your knees to provide an extra layer of support.
End every yoga session with a 3-5 minute savasana to reset your mind and come back to any intentions you made at the beginning of your session.
Savasana is a relaxation pose. Lay flat on your back with your legs slightly apart and your arms comfortably out by your sides. Try to quiet the mind and focus on your breath during this time to completely relax and prepare the body for the rest of the day.
