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 the next three weeks. This week Julie focuses on the groin and hamstrings

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 will run every Friday for the next three weeks and are 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.

So roll out those matts and join Julie in the first 30 minute yoga seqeunce.

WEEK ONE: Groin and hamstrings 

Julie sets off the beginner’s yoga course by this week concentrating on the groin and hamstrings. Here our aim is to relieve tightness and stiffness in the backs of the legs by learning to lengthen them safely while beginning to open up the hips and learning how to move with the breath – essential to any yoga class.
