Want to learn how to stretch your hamstrings and legs properly? Sarah Malcolm explains Forward Fold Pose in Day 26 of our 30 Day Yoga Challenge
Welcome to day 23 of Healthista’s 30 Day Yoga Challenge, with leading London yoga teacher, Sarah Malcolm (@sarahmalcs), where you learn in detail a different pose or aspect of yoga every day.
If you’re just joining us, click here to go to day one and see below for links to the other days in the series.
Today’s yoga pose in Healthista’s 30 day yoga challenge with Sarah Malcolm is Forward Fold.
Forward Fold is also known as Standing Forward Fold or Forward Bend and in Sanskrit is recognised as being an Intense Stretch Pose.
For the best result, Sarah recommends you should: “keep inviting space every time you inhale, to slightly lift the heart, and every time you exhale to fold into this a little deeper.”
Your head should stay low throughout the pose, helping helps to reduce stress and anxiety.
Each day you will be learning a new aspect to the practice, so in a month you will have learned the basic yoga poses in depth and participate in classes or do a proper sequence yourself.
Shockingly to most people, yoga is a meditation that anyone can do. You don’t need a specific body type to master the practice, you just need the right skills – and you don’t need to be bendy! Our 30 day challenge will give you the skills to become a true yogi.
