Yoga Challenge

1.5.20 - Hello everybody! 

We hope you are all well and staying sane! During times like these at the moment, it is hard to stay sane and we can sometimes forget that the people we are living with love us dearly and are trying their best to keep each of us safe and well....it is a hard time for EVERYBODY! πŸ˜„

 

As part of channelling our inner wellbeing, Ms Hatton has decided to set you a 30 day yoga challenge for you and your families to join in with.  Don't worry, we're going to do it too!

 

We'll will be uploading a link to a mini yoga lesson each day, teaching one yoga pose! We're going to do it too and we want you to send in photos and videos of you practising your daily pose, and get your family involved too! 

 

Yoga is for everyone! You don’t need to be flexible! In fact... it’s a lot funnier if you’re not πŸ˜‚

Take a look at the video by clicking the link below.

 

Namaste.

Mr Cross and Mr Chin

30 Day Yoga Challenge - Day 6

Welcome to Day 6 of the 30 Day Yoga Challenge!

Today we will be learning Warrior I pose, which is very similar to Warrior II, which you already know! You will start to see the poses you are learning come together, and maybe you can practise them all each day.

Warrior I is great for circulation around the body, as well as improving our focus and concentration. You will feel the muscles in your legs working too! Warrior poses are fantastic, strong poses.

Don't forget to send in your photos and videos to the school email and to our twitter page!

See you tomorrow and namaste,

Well done to you both, Prisha and Priansh. Great work.

30 Day Yoga Challenge - Day 4

Welcome to Day 4 of the 30 Day Yoga Challenge!

Don't worry - no falling over for this pose! Today we will be learning Boat Pose or Navasana in Sanskrit.

Navasana is a great core/abdominal muscle work out! You'll be getting rock hard abs with this one! It's also a great pose for lengthening the spine and stretching the lower back when done correctly.

Don't forget to send in your photos and videos to the school email and to our twitter page!

See you tomorrow and namaste,

Ms H

30 Day Yoga Challenge - Day 3

Welcome to Day 3 of the 30 Day Yoga Challenge!

It's another tricky (fun) one! Today we will be learning Half-Moon Pose.
We will be using the poses we learnt yesterday, Warrior II and Extended-Side Angle Pose, to transition into Half-Moon.

Half-Moon has many physical benefits, such as improving your balance and core strength (those lovely tummy muscles!) but also has some mental/internal benefits too. This pose is a 'cooling pose', which means you draw in calm, cool energy - making it perfect for reducing stress and worry!

The Sanskrit name for Half-Moon is Ardha Chandrasana... another tongue twister!

Please note: no blocks are needed for this pose! You can use anything you have lying around the house to support you, such as tins of food, boxes or books.

Don't forget to send in your photos and videos to the school email and to our twitter page!

See you tomorrow and namaste,

Ms H

30 Day Yoga Challenge - Day 2

Welcome to Day 2 of the 30 Day Yoga Challenge!

Today I have Miss Hill joining me to learn the Warrior II and Extended Side-Angle poses... so today is actually a double challenge! Warrior II is a very common yoga pose and works all of the muscles in the body - it's a very strong pose.. hence the name! We will then transition into Side-Angle pose which is a great pose for strengthening the legs, knees, and ankles, while also stretching and toning the abdominal muscles. The proper name for Extended Side-Angle pose is Utthita Parsvakonasana... have a go at saying that! It's a tongue twister that's for sure...

These poses will prepare us for our Day 3 pose, coming tomorrow!

1.5.20 - 30 Day Yoga Challenge - Day 1

Welcome to Day 1 of the 30 Day Yoga Challenge!
Today you will learn one of my favourite yoga poses of all time... King Dancer Pose! This pose is great for increasing your flexibility, improving your balance and maintaining focus. Don't forget to send in a photo or video of you having a go!
