stronger and just like start your day off really great so as you can see I am starting splits but I’m a former dancer and gymnast so kind of kept this for a while but I know that Yoga has been a huge part in helping me maintain my flexibility and all that stuff so I want to help you guys get more flexible and be able to eventually you know do this once ah and be more limber just all over so we’re going to start off sitting up and then the yoga breath is just through the nose so you’re not really doing any you know exhales through the mouth so it’s all just which is a little bit hard to get used to at first but once you get into the flow but it’s really really good and it’s really good for your respiratory system and it keeps you focused on the breath and just on the practice so start to breathe here and then we’re going to start in child’s clothes so bring your toes out hit with this is apart and then we’re going to fall forward and reach our hands out all the way and just stretch out here I believe oil when you’re next in the other going to come up to a tabletop position breathe and make sure that you’re stacked completely with your shoulders over your wrists now here we’re just going to stretch out the spine a little bit and do some cats and cows so inhale cap and arch your back and look up to the sky exhale fold all the way forward tuck your chin to your chest that helps get your upper back up more and suck in that tongue exhale cat inhale cow the next exhale comes from the neutral spine breathe and we’re just going to reach our left hand out forward and take our right foot all the way back so they’re stretching from opposite directions you want this hand to feel like it’s being pulled this way well this leg and foot is being pulled this way so you can elongate breathe here reach up just go to a place that’s comfortable for you keep reaching and set it down in here we’re going to do the opposite side so reach that right hand forward and the left leg all the way back breathe balance here the stuff if you want exhale piss it all down now we’re going to go up into the first downward dog of the class and we in the little routine but this is a really really good posture and it helps with your flexibility in your shoulders and your legs and we’re going to do it a lot throughout class and it is a lot of weight on your shoulders so if you ever get tired always come back to just that child’s clothes that we did at the beginning of the routine so here we go down our facing dog you’re going to tuck your toes under and lift your hips all the way high up to the sky press your palms firmly into the mat and stretch back and if you can’t get your heels all the way to the ground you can definitely just bend your knees here and then work to one making your heels all the way to the ground push back and you want to push your tailbone out and up on your next exhale we’re going to jump or float or just step to the top of our mat and bring our big toes to touch and then keep a little sliver between our ankles movement inhale and come up to a halfway lift and again make sure you have a completely flat back and almost act if there’s any strain on your head for work forwards and then a string from your tailbone pulling it back so you can elongate your spine exhale bring it down and now we’re going to come into ragdoll so grab your

chaturanga come down lift up on your toes and come down so you make a perfect 90 degree angle with your arms and if you can’t do that you can always modify and come down like this but what we want is that your elbows step straight over your wrists instead of going out this way or out back this way we want a straight line so let’s do that again chaturanga flip the toes inhale upward facing dog so
