Hi , it's Leslie .

We master .

Welcome to Day three and here we are , we're gonna start again on our backs .

So remember the breath gonna bring the hands on the ribs again today .

Ribs and belly , you can feel the breath inhale and expand those areas and actually you can feel it come all the way up into the chest on the inhale .

As you exhale , feel the breath empty all the way out , slightly pulling in the belly .

Keep that little constriction in the back of the throat for breathing and just a reminder , don't forget to subscribe today while you're here .

We would love for you to join our Fightmaster Yoga community .

We're gonna draw the right knee and again , extend the left leg out and circle the right ankle .

So I like to warm up the ankles and the hamstrings circle in the other direction and then extend the right leg up , extend it out , straighten the leg as much as you can flex the ankle on the right foot .

Continuing that steady breath , allow the shoulder blades again to relax a little .

Make sure that you're not creating any tension .

We're going to hold the right chin and open the leg to the right side .

But instead of letting your left hip roll off the map , try and keep your left hip drawn grounded down .

So as the right leg goes to the right , the left left hip pops up , then don't go quite so far .

Look over the left shoulder unless it bothers the neck for eating .

Here , it's a nice , gentle hip opening , then come back to center as you inhale and on the exhale will twist .

So take the right leg as far over toward the left side as you can comfortably .

It may or may not touch the floor .

Look over the right shoulder and gently try and turn the belly to face up toward the ceiling and then back , there's center on your in here .

Now extend the right leg out , draw the left knee and circle the left ankle in one direction and reverse inhale , left leg up , reaching it up , keep the right leg extended , pull the toes back .

So the right leg is active , left legs as straight as it'll go , keeping a little bend in the knee as needed .

And as you continue , your hamstrings will stretch out more and more .

But if your leg is straight , pull up on the kneecap from the quadri sep the big muscle in the front of the leg because as you're stretching , it's important to also um engage the opposing muscle .

So if you're stretching the hamstring , you engage the quadri , then we'll draw the leg in , hold the shin with the left hand , take the left leg to the left , but keep the right hip pressing down .

So if the right hip pops up off the floor , don't go quite so far to the left , go over the right shoulder .

Breathing here .

Again , the breath is so important so that we take time to focus on our breath .

It helps to relieve stress , just lengthening and focusing on the breath , which is why yoga is so wonderful for stress relief .

So we're starting off our classes a little bit shorter .

So come back to center and then we'll twist , take the knee to the left , look right .

So we start off with some shorter classes in this 30 days and eventually they'll start to lengthen .

Well , my hope is that by the time you finish these 30 days , if you want to keep practicing every day , you can practice our 90 day yoga fix .

So , come back to center and flex the ankles lying on the back , natural curves of the spine .

Inhale , reach the arms up and over .

Keep the ribs and belly in .

Draw the hip points up toward the lower ribs , tailbone reaches toward the heels .

Exhale arms back down .

So remember only take the arms as high as you can without overarching the back , inhale arms reach without letting the ribs pop up , exhale arms down .

We're all of the rights and carefully come up press the left hand down , let your head come up last as you come to see it and then rolling forward to table , position your wrist under shoulders and knees and hips .

Inhale , warming up the spine , bring the chest forward , lift your chin , lift your tailbone up , exhale around the back , chin toward the chest and he'll drop the belly , lift the tailbone .

Exhale , rounding , press away from the floor gently pull ribs and belly in in hell .

Praying in the chest through exhale and around in the back and then coming to neutral , extend the right leg , back toes , tucking under and then we're gonna lift that right leg .

Remember from the inner thigh , don't let your back arch like I'm showing , keep the ribs and belly pulling in outer right hip drops down .

Don't let it lift .

Now this time it drop the belly down though and lift that left leg up .

Drop the outer left hip down .

Don't open the hip , drop it down , reach the right arm forward , stretch to the arm and the leg .

But keep re drawing in ribs and belly breathing here , it's a little trickier .

In fact , sometimes they call this one tricky cat and then back to table once again , right , like back lifted from the inner thigh , drop the outer hip , left arm reaches forward , left hip pins in towards center , pull the ofs and bellion strongly .

You might start feeling this if you're not already a lot of muscle in the back and belly needed .

Set it down , left leg back and we lift the left leg up , drop the outer left hip down , reaching the right arm forward , pull the ribs and the belly in .

So our yoga practice makes us flexible and strong .

So we're gonna set all that down and come to child's post hips back toward the heels .

As much as they will reach the arms forward , spread out the fingers inhale , drop the belly lift the chin and tailbone up , exhale round in the back and then tuck your toes under downward facing dog , bending the knee .

So stretch back as far as you can and then knees back down .

Child's pose , spread the fingers nice and wide .

Keep the arms straight , inhale back up onto the hands , chest forward , drop the belly , little back bent and then start to round the back , tuck the toes under , lift off the knees , but keep them bent .

Keep your hips way up into the air .

Now start to straighten the right leg , keep the left knee bent and switch just gonna bicycle your legs and then take the knees down again to rest in child's pose .

So we do downward facing dog a lot .

It is a great posture for lengthening the spine , taking away any compression in the vertebrae , they're gonna come back up , bring the chest forward , drop the belly , lift the tail bone and then tuck the tail tuck , the toes lift the knees downward facing dog straighten the legs any amount .

But remember if you're coming forward , then keep the knees bent , keep the hips high .

So you're stretching out the spine so we can press our spine when we're sitting , we're walking , standing , especially running .

So downward facing dog is almost like being in traction .

So we're going , it actually is like being in traction .

We're upside down .

It's an inversion and we're allowing space between each vertebra to get longer , bigger space .

We're gonna walk the hands and feet toward each other .

So any way you can and bend the knees as needed , now , bring your hands to your hip bones with bent knees with a long spine , come all the way up .

So we're not going to round the back and keep the spine nice and long and we're gonna find to .

So this is our blueprint pose for all of our standing poses , feed her together or hips with a part , but make sure the outer edges of your feet are parallel and start to notice your feet and how they feel on the floor .

We want to press evenly .

So you're going to rock a little back and forth , but press evenly through the base of the big toes , base of the little toes in or outer heels , pressure your thighs back , but then lengthen your tailbone down because we want to keep those natural curves pull in the belly , keep the ribs strong in lift the chest , shoulders up , back down and then just let everything soften , keeping the belly lifted , chin is parallel with the floor .

The legs are active .

So now each vertebra is stacked on top of the one below .

This is the safest position for your skeleton to be in to do inhale palms , face up , sweep the arms out around and up .

Now , just like when we're on the ground , we want over a the back , sometimes ribs out .

So instead pull the ribs in , keep lengthening the tailbone .

You might take your arms wider or more in front of you .

So they're not all the way up by the ears .

Exhale , arms down , inhale again , sweep your arms out around and up as you reach up , make sure your shoulder blades draw down toward the waist .

A little , I'm gonna want the , the shoulders bunched up by the ears , exhale and arms back down and he'll sweep your arms out around and up and reach up tall , straight arms .

Don't let the ribs pop out .

They pull the ribs and reach the tee bone down , exhale , arms down , inhale , sweeping the arms up , elbows straight , exhale hinge from your hips .

So hips will go back as you start to come forward .

So forward , full , your hands may not touch the floor .

You can bend the knees as much as you need to and you might just have your arms hanging off the floors fine or hands on shins .

So let's inhale fingertips to the floor or hands on shins or thighs to lengthen the spine .

This is called a , then exhale , fold forward any amount bending the knees as you need two hips above the heels .

If the legs are straight though , come halfway up again and now bend the knees and hands to the floor , we gonna come right back down to the knees and sit back onto the heels .

This is called visa .

If it hurts your knees , don't sit all the way back onto the heels , the knees are about as wide as the hips lift up your chest , lengthen your spine .

If this one hurts , sit in a different position .

Now take your right ear to your right shoulder , take your right hand on the head , not pulling up , but just resting it .

There , extend the left arm out and flex the ankle will stretch out the neck a little breathe into the left side of the neck and then had to center exhale left ear toward left shoulder , left hand on the head , right arm out , flex the wrist , relax the shoulder blades keep lifting the chest , make sure the upper back isn't starting to round inhale back to center and now we'll come right onto our backs again to make your way down right ankle , just pass the left knee thread the needle .

Remember you can hold the shin or you can hold behind the thigh or you can always keep the left foot on the floor , check in with the breath and release the left ankle .

Just pass the right knee , flex the ankle , hold the right leg to shin behind the thigh or keep the right foot on the floor breath nice long breaths and release .

I'm gonna take the soles of the feet together and let the knees drop apart .

If you have yoga blocks , you can put them on the outsides of your thighs or you can make fists with your hands and let your uh legs rest on your fists .

So this is called soup .

If it is not comfortable for you to be in this position , then either extend your legs straight out or you can bend the knees and put the feet onto the floor .

And now we will extend ourselves our legs out into Shana .

So remember tail's going length to the backs of the knees if you are comfortable .

And so the feet together , knees apart , you can stay there for your today or there's always been the knees feet onto the floor .

But most importantly , let everything relax , quiet mind , a quiet body .

So we're going to start to reawaken the body our quote today , which I just said earlier .
