Beginner’s yoga course – Week three

Healthista has partnered with yoga festival Wanderlust to bring you a free 30 minute Beginner’s Yoga Course, featuring leading London teacher Julie Montagu, running every Friday.  For this week’s final class, Julie focuses on your core

Julie Montagu, a leading yoga teacher whose classes are famous across the capital has many people telling her that they can’t do yoga because they aren’t flexible. But yoga is what makes you flexible, she says.

Julie’s three week beginner’s yoga course is all about taking it back to basics, so that you as a beginner know that you too can do yoga.  Her 30 minute sequences have run every Friday for the last three weeks and were designed to teach you the breathing, the postures and the general know-how of yoga so you can go to classes with more confidence – all while giving you a great workout. Here are links to previous lessons:

Beginner’s yoga course: week one

Beginner’s yoga course: week two 

Now, roll out those matts and join Julie in the final 30 minute yoga seqeunce.

WEEK THREE: CORE

Without a strong physical centre, yoga poses are harder to get in and out of and in partiuclar, harder to hold. A strong core is the key to strengthen and lengthen every part of the body. It all starts with core.
