Yoga Challenge Poses For 2
This week, we’re challenging you to try two new yoga poses! These poses are a little more advanced, so be sure to take your time and practice them safely.
The first pose is Camel Pose. This pose stretches the entire front of your body, including your chest, abs, and thighs. It also strengthens your back and opens your hips. To do Camel Pose, start in a kneeling position with your thighs parallel to each other. Place your hands on your hips, then lean back while keeping your hips parallel to the ground. You should feel a nice stretch in your chest and abs. Hold the pose for 5-10 breaths, then slowly come back to kneeling position.
The second pose is Pigeon Pose. This pose stretches your hips and glutes, and also helps to open up your chest and shoulders. To do Pigeon Pose, start in a Downward Dog position. Bring your right knee forward to touch your right wrist, then extend your left leg behind you. You should feel a deep stretch in your hips and glutes. Hold the pose for 5-10 breaths, then switch sides.
Seated Poses Yoga
is a seated pose that is often used to improve flexibility and balance. It is performed by sitting on the floor with the spine straight, then folding the legs in so the soles of the feet are together and the knees are pointed out to the sides. The hands can be placed on the floor beside the hips, with the fingers pointing forward, or they can be placed in the lap with the palms together.
This pose is beneficial for the hips, hamstrings, and groin. It can help to improve flexibility in these areas, as well as improve balance. It is also a calming pose that can be used to relax the mind and body.
Yoga Seated Twist Poses
The seated twist is a great way to start your day or to finish a yoga practice. The pose stretches and warms up the spine and hips. It also helps to improve digestion.
To do the seated twist, sit on the floor with your knees bent and your feet together. Place your left hand on the floor behind you and twist to the right. Reach your right hand behind you and hold on to your left ankle. Keep your back straight and twist as far as you can. Hold for a few breaths and then switch sides.
Yoga Restorative Poses
There are many different types of yoga, and while they all have different focuses, they all have one common goal: to unite the mind, body, and spirit. One type of yoga that is especially beneficial for the mind and body is Restorative Yoga.
Restorative Yoga is a type of yoga that is all about relaxation. The poses are gentle and are meant to help you restore and rejuvenate your body and mind. The focus is on releasing tension and restoring balance.
The poses in Restorative Yoga are typically done with props, such as blocks, blankets, and straps. This is because the goal is to relax and let go, so you don’t need to force yourself into a pose. The props help you to get into the poses comfortably and hold them for a longer period of time.
Restorative Yoga is a great way to relax after a long day or to relieve stress and tension. It can also help to improve sleep quality and reduce anxiety.
Basic Yoga Pose
: Child’s Pose
Child’s Pose is a basic yoga pose that is often used as a resting pose. It is also a great pose to do when you need to calm down and de-stress.
To do Child’s Pose, start by kneeling on the floor. Then, bend forward and put your forehead on the floor. Stretch your arms out in front of you and relax your whole body. Stay in this pose for a few minutes, breathing deeply and calmly.
Child’s Pose is a great pose to do anytime, but it is especially helpful in the morning when you need to start your day off with a sense of peace and calm.
