Welcome to the final video of Healthista’s second yoga challenge, with leading London yoga teacher Sarah Malcolm (@sarahmalcs), where you learn a new 30-minute yoga sequence each week for a month.

If you’re new to yoga, click here to go to day one of our 30 day yoga challenge where Sarah taught an in-depth beginner pose each day.

The next level of our yoga challenge – Vinyasa flow series:

Vinyasa flow – Week one – Energising Morning Flow

Vinyasa flow – Week two – Chest Opener

Vinyasa flow – Week three – Calming Yoga for Sleep

This month-long yoga challenge introduces a new Vinyasa flow routine for beginners each week – this week is the final week and above are links to the three previous sessions. In each of the three 30-minute videos, you will build your endurance and develop the skills to become a true yogi.

Vinyasa flow is a sequence of yoga poses that are linked through continuous motions. As you flow through each posture, the breath is synchronized with the body movements.

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 to do it, that’s a myth we’d like to dispel. Just do the moves and you’ll feel the magic.

The final video in our series focuses on toning your core.

The last video in our vinyasa flow series turns up the intensity with a yoga sequence that works your core.

This workout is great for digestion, according to Sarah, because it warms up your abdominal muscles and gets your body moving.

Try doing this routine in the mornings to wake up for the day ahead or prepare your body for another workout.
