The final pose of this month #projectjustyoga or of any yoga class, is one of deep restoration  #CorpsePose
You may not think there is much variation or indication to this posture, but:
💙 If your low back is tight, it can be difficult to lie on your back comfortably. Placing a bolster underneath your knees takes weight off of your pelvis, which can allow the lumbar vertebrae and lower back to release and relax.
💙💜💚💙💜💚💙💜💚
Whether you’re brand new to yoga or have been practicing for many years, there’s one tip that applies to everyone: Don't skip #Savasana

For today’s #projectjustyoga day 20 #lowlunge  this will stretch the thighs and groin and opens the chest
Try these modifications/variations in your practice if you have any flexibility concerns or injuries 💜 - use blocks at either side if you have shoulder or back injuries and can not raise your arms fully
💜 - If you can extend your arms but your flexibility is limited, keep your upper body in an upright position and your gaze forward or down ( especially with any neck injury) before you begin to extend back in this posture.

It’s almost time to end our first month of #projectjustyoga Tomorrow’s day 19 we bring you 
#BaddhaKonasana  also known as the #Butterflypose
🦋This  is a seated pose that strengthens and opens the hips and groin while eradicating abdominal discomfort.  During each exercise, make sure to maintain a focus on your breathing. If you need to modify this posture due to tight hips or bad knees, please try these variations.
🦋For a more restorative variation, have your feet further away from your midline, forming a larger angle in between your upper and lower legs
🦋To release pressure on the knees and hip joints, place blocks under the knees

Day 18 #projectjustyoga  brings you #WideLeggedForwardFold

This posture is a calming forward bend that stretches the hamstrings and back. There are several arm variations and other modifications available, making this a suitable pose for yoga students of all levels

Some beginners who aren't able to easily bring their hands to the floor and need a good deal of support in this forward bend can try these modifications.
.
💚 You can also try walking your feet wider apart If your hands do not reach the floor
💚 Try raising your hands off the floor by resting each on the end of a block. This will help protect your lower back.

A deep stretch for the hamstrings, groins, and hips, tomorrow’s day 17 #Trikonasana also opens the chest and shoulders. It helps relieve lower back pain, stress, and sluggish digestion.
Practicing #TrianglePose can create symmetry throughout your whole body.
Not all can achieve any Asana the very first time and the first attempt. This is one of those Standing and Balancing Asanas which requires practice and focus. If one cannot achieve this pose the very first attempt, then there are other ways to do this
💜 If it is difficult to reach the hands to the floor completely, you can first try to just place the tips of the fingers onto the floor. But if the palms are far away from the floor , Use a yoga block For extra stability

More than just a physical posture, # projectjustyoga day 16  #WarriorII increases your ability to concentrate. As you hone your gaze, you direct your mind clearly and with intention. Distractions disappear and your energy becomes powerful and focused. However If you’re unable to perform the full expression of the pose right now, try these simple changes to lighten the resistance and reduce the amount of necessary exertion:
💚 Place your hands on your hips if you have a shoulder injury or if you are still building upper body strength
💚 If your hips are very tight, shorten your stance and straighten your front leg to a degree that is comfortable as you work on gaining flexibility.

Day 15 for #projectjustyoga we pring you #Lowplank #Chaturanga 
This is a common posture that requires strength and refined technique. If done incorrectly, over time the pose can put stress on the shoulder joint and lead to injury which is why we are offering a few alternatives. Try these modifications and the choose what suits your practice best
💜 Place the block on the lowest or middle height. When lowering the block will stop you from dropping the shoulders below the height of the elbows. Your elbows should only have a 90 degree bend, and your chest should broaden across the block. Slightly pull your shoulders back so you do not round forward.
💜 You can also try dropping the knees down to the mat, keeping the elbows hugged into the sides of the rib cage and lowering the chest and chin as far down to the mat as possible. Keep the hips lifted.

if you’re new to the upside down world, day 14 of #projectjustyoga gives you #dolphinpose which is a posture that is CRUCIAL to your success. But like many, shoulder and core strength may hold you back.. so try this modification in your practice to build that strength.
🔶 place a block between the hands to help create and cultivate the necessary upper body strength... 🔷🔷 You may also bend your knees if you feel too much tightness in your hamstrings..
