In day 20 of Healthista’s 30 day yoga challenge with Sarah Malcolm you will be learning Wild Thing.

Wild Thing involves reaching up towards the ceiling so that you can open your chest, lungs and shoulders.

This pose can be difficult to master, but once you have your balance and strength in tact you’ll be a pro. It’s important to take time with this pose to make sure it’s done properly, as this is a pose that is so often done incorrectly.

Our 30 day yoga challenge

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.
