00:00:00,000 –> 00:00:02,580
hello guys and welcome back to Angela

2
00:00:02,580 –> 00:00:05,850
Jade so as you guys probably know I am a

3
00:00:05,850 –> 00:00:08,400
massive fan of yoga I just love it

4
00:00:08,400 –> 00:00:11,460
I’ve been doing hot yoga and happy ogre

5
00:00:11,460 –> 00:00:14,190
vinyasas and those different types of

6
00:00:14,190 –> 00:00:16,500
yoga and my mom is actually a yoga

7
00:00:16,500 –> 00:00:18,210
teacher so I thought I would kind of

8
00:00:18,210 –> 00:00:20,609
share a bit of my love for yoga with you

9
00:00:20,609 –> 00:00:24,269
guys with a kind of beginners yoga video

10
00:00:24,269 –> 00:00:27,359
and I’m kind of going to discuss how you

11
00:00:27,359 –> 00:00:29,640
can put some yoga into your life how to

12
00:00:29,640 –> 00:00:32,668
like start yoga where to start with it

13
00:00:32,668 –> 00:00:34,050
and then towards the end of this video

14
00:00:34,050 –> 00:00:37,140
I’m going to kind of guide you through a

15
00:00:37,140 –> 00:00:42,840
sort of start yoga sequence because it’s

16
00:00:42,840 –> 00:00:45,690
quite important to start the sequence

17
00:00:45,690 –> 00:00:48,930
with refocusing your mind and focusing

18
00:00:48,930 –> 00:00:51,690
on your breath so yeah it won’t require

19
00:00:51,690 –> 00:00:54,270
any like yoga clubs I mean I’m wearing

20
00:00:54,270 –> 00:00:56,430
like a sports bra but won’t require any

21
00:00:56,430 –> 00:00:58,890
of that it just requires you and your

22
00:00:58,890 –> 00:01:03,000
mind and you’d be present so yeah I will

23
00:01:03,000 –> 00:01:05,960
quickly take you through my yoga journey

24
00:01:05,960 –> 00:01:09,240
so my mom’s been a yoga teacher for

25
00:01:09,240 –> 00:01:12,150
quite a few years but as a child I was

26
00:01:12,150 –> 00:01:15,030
not receptive to it at all I thought I

27
00:01:15,030 –> 00:01:17,070
was really on flexible and I was like no

28
00:01:17,070 –> 00:01:17,970
I’m not doing that

29
00:01:17,970 –> 00:01:19,890
my mum would kind of try and get me to

30
00:01:19,890 –> 00:01:22,320
do yoga and I like no mom I don’t do it

31
00:01:22,320 –> 00:01:26,340
all so I think this shift came when I

32
00:01:26,340 –> 00:01:29,460
was about 14 my mom randomly offered to

33
00:01:29,460 –> 00:01:32,009
give me and my best friend Charlotte and

34
00:01:32,009 –> 00:01:35,189
her mom was like private yoga class in

35
00:01:35,189 –> 00:01:38,040
our living room so just like this we

36
00:01:38,040 –> 00:01:39,509
would come into our living room shovel

37
00:01:39,509 –> 00:01:41,610
the furniture back and I think the fact

38
00:01:41,610 –> 00:01:43,049
that I was doing it with my friend kind

39
00:01:43,049 –> 00:01:45,540
of made me want to do it so we just did

40
00:01:45,540 –> 00:01:47,490
it like one session a week actually like

41
00:01:47,490 –> 00:01:51,119
really basic half an hour of yoga and I

42
00:01:51,119 –> 00:01:53,850
kind of realized that I had been missing

43
00:01:53,850 –> 00:01:57,329
out whether your ritual or not whether

44
00:01:57,329 –> 00:01:59,700
you are sec scible or not it or not

45
00:01:59,700 –> 00:02:02,759
doesn’t matter because the thing is Yoga

46
00:02:02,759 –> 00:02:04,920
is for everyone there are so many

47
00:02:04,920 –> 00:02:06,479
different types of yoga so if you don’t

48
00:02:06,479 –> 00:02:09,330
like one type that’s fine leave it there

49
00:02:09,330 –> 00:02:11,180
are so many other different types and

50
00:02:11,180 –> 00:02:13,470
that summer we went to

51
00:02:13,470 –> 00:02:16,620
Highland and I went to the hot yoga

52
00:02:16,620 –> 00:02:18,690
studio there which is like Bikram yoga

53
00:02:18,690 –> 00:02:20,250
and that’s so different to anything I

54
00:02:20,250 –> 00:02:21,720
had done and it’s kind of one of the

55
00:02:21,720 –> 00:02:22,950
most intense kind of view because you

56
00:02:22,950 –> 00:02:26,940
can do but I personally loved it and I

57
00:02:26,940 –> 00:02:28,880
think it was that that kind of initiated

58
00:02:28,880 –> 00:02:32,610
my yogurt journey and my new year’s

59
00:02:32,610 –> 00:02:37,020
resolution to 2017 was to do like 20

60
00:02:37,020 –> 00:02:40,260
minutes of yoga every morning and like 5

61
00:02:40,260 –> 00:02:42,600
to 10 minutes of yoga before I go to bed

62
00:02:42,600 –> 00:02:44,490
so that’s kind of where I’m at right now

63
00:02:44,490 –> 00:02:47,520
so you’re really basic I’m not talking

64
00:02:47,520 –> 00:02:49,320
like handstands I’m just talking like

65
00:02:49,320 –> 00:02:51,870
gentle stretches refocusing your mind

66
00:02:51,870 –> 00:02:54,390
focusing on your breathing and I truly

67
00:02:54,390 –> 00:02:57,720
believe that it has changed my life and

68
00:02:57,720 –> 00:02:59,610
has changed a lot of my outlook on life

69
00:02:59,610 –> 00:03:02,220
and I just feel a lot more positive in

70
00:03:02,220 –> 00:03:04,080
general especially when you do it in the

71
00:03:04,080 –> 00:03:05,430
morning because it kind of sets up your

72
00:03:05,430 –> 00:03:07,830
day I kind of recommend doing a yoga

73
00:03:07,830 –> 00:03:10,740
class somewhere at least once there are

74
00:03:10,740 –> 00:03:12,709
so many good resources online nowadays

75
00:03:12,709 –> 00:03:15,810
but I feel like at least your first few

76
00:03:15,810 –> 00:03:17,670
classes is quite a good idea to like

77
00:03:17,670 –> 00:03:19,769
physically go to a class and have a

78
00:03:19,769 –> 00:03:21,450
teacher there that can instruct you and

79
00:03:21,450 –> 00:03:23,160
help you if you need it I also feel like

80
00:03:23,160 –> 00:03:25,739
yoga classes are like the least judgy

81
00:03:25,739 –> 00:03:28,260
place ever this is just me but I feel

82
00:03:28,260 –> 00:03:30,360
like I can go in there and just utterly

83
00:03:30,360 –> 00:03:32,550
be myself so it’s a beginning yoga I

84
00:03:32,550 –> 00:03:34,709
also recommend that yoga with Adriene on

85
00:03:34,709 –> 00:03:37,260
YouTube because I mean I’m not beginner

86
00:03:37,260 –> 00:03:39,269
anymore but I still love her videos I

87
00:03:39,269 –> 00:03:42,209
love her personality she just makes

88
00:03:42,209 –> 00:03:44,760
everything really like fun and she’s

89
00:03:44,760 –> 00:03:45,989
very good tailoring it to different

90
00:03:45,989 –> 00:03:49,080
abilities so yoga with Adriene hit her

91
00:03:49,080 –> 00:03:51,180
up this is not sponsored but I just love

92
00:03:51,180 –> 00:03:54,269
the foundations of yoga are that you

93
00:03:54,269 –> 00:03:56,250
focus on your breath you kind of ride

94
00:03:56,250 –> 00:03:59,610
your breath and it is that breath that

95
00:03:59,610 –> 00:04:02,160
is the center of the practice of yoga

96
00:04:02,160 –> 00:04:05,400
and the fundamental idea is that it is

97
00:04:05,400 –> 00:04:09,690
not what you do but how you do it so it

98
00:04:09,690 –> 00:04:12,810
is not getting into fancy poses just for

99
00:04:12,810 –> 00:04:15,360
the sake of an Instagram photo it is

100
00:04:15,360 –> 00:04:17,850
more how you flow from one pose to

101
00:04:17,850 –> 00:04:20,430
another or how you use your breath to

102
00:04:20,430 –> 00:04:24,360
guide the pose or how you use the pose

103
00:04:24,360 –> 00:04:27,560
to connect to a part of your cell

104
00:04:27,560 –> 00:04:30,990
like I went to a forest Kyogre class

105
00:04:30,990 –> 00:04:33,060
yesterday never done forest yoga before

106
00:04:33,060 –> 00:04:35,100
and I came out of it feeling so like

107
00:04:35,100 –> 00:04:37,470
inspired and motivated and I was like

108
00:04:37,470 –> 00:04:39,360
right Jane it’s time to make all yoga

109
00:04:39,360 –> 00:04:41,670
video it’s also yoga so like everything

110
00:04:41,670 –> 00:04:43,950
there’s yoga so like stress relief as

111
00:04:43,950 –> 00:04:46,410
like relaxation kind of yoga as like

112
00:04:46,410 –> 00:04:49,650
workout kind of yoga vinyasas and slow

113
00:04:49,650 –> 00:04:53,130
Bikram like hot yoga hot room there’s so

114
00:04:53,130 –> 00:04:54,810
here four types and I really encourage

115
00:04:54,810 –> 00:04:56,640
you to kind of branch out and see what

116
00:04:56,640 –> 00:04:58,350
things you like especially if you’re

117
00:04:58,350 –> 00:04:59,880
having a down day there’s actually

118
00:04:59,880 –> 00:05:03,210
nothing better than coming home five

119
00:05:03,210 –> 00:05:06,300
minutes on your mat do it done and you

120
00:05:06,300 –> 00:05:09,030
feel so much better okay so I also want

121
00:05:09,030 –> 00:05:11,430
to point out I’m not yoga teacher I am

122
00:05:11,430 –> 00:05:15,480
17 years old you know I mean so I highly

123
00:05:15,480 –> 00:05:17,130
recommend that you do look elsewhere for

124
00:05:17,130 –> 00:05:20,640
like actual yoga routines and stuff but

125
00:05:20,640 –> 00:05:22,710
I’m kind of just going to guide you

126
00:05:22,710 –> 00:05:26,370
through a sort of seated slash lying

127
00:05:26,370 –> 00:05:29,790
down kind of start to your practice and

128
00:05:29,790 –> 00:05:31,560
you can do it right now don’t need to be

129
00:05:31,560 –> 00:05:33,300
in yoga gear you don’t need a mat

130
00:05:33,300 –> 00:05:36,240
although I have gotten that I recommend

131
00:05:36,240 –> 00:05:38,220
you just sit on a comfortable surface

132
00:05:38,220 –> 00:05:40,680
you can put a towel down if you want or

133
00:05:40,680 –> 00:05:43,470
just some like clothes or something just

134
00:05:43,470 –> 00:05:45,840
put something down on the floor and join

135
00:05:45,840 –> 00:05:48,300
me when you’re ready just seated it’ll

136
00:05:48,300 –> 00:05:49,830
only be like a few minutes so this is

137
00:05:49,830 –> 00:05:51,450
actually what I do to start my yoga

138
00:05:51,450 –> 00:05:53,100
practice in the morning and it’s also

139
00:05:53,100 –> 00:05:55,380
what you do it like most classes to kind

140
00:05:55,380 –> 00:05:57,810
of get your mind in the zone so when

141
00:05:57,810 –> 00:05:59,250
you’re ready just come to a comfortable

142
00:05:59,250 –> 00:06:02,700
seated position and if cross-legged

143
00:06:02,700 –> 00:06:04,919
doesn’t even feel that great for you you

144
00:06:04,919 –> 00:06:08,460
can take sitting on your knees you can

145
00:06:08,460 –> 00:06:10,680
lie down you can lie down with your legs

146
00:06:10,680 –> 00:06:13,410
up if you want just find a place that

147
00:06:13,410 –> 00:06:15,270
kind of feels comfortable for you and

148
00:06:15,270 –> 00:06:17,160
that you can stay in for a few minutes

149
00:06:17,160 –> 00:06:18,900
and when you’re ready I invite you just

150
00:06:18,900 –> 00:06:22,700
softly close off your eyes

151
00:06:28,319 –> 00:06:30,879
slowly draw your attention to your

152
00:06:30,879 –> 00:06:38,280
breath and slowly begin to deepen it

153
00:06:43,740 –> 00:06:47,470
notice how upon your inhale the belly

154
00:06:47,470 –> 00:06:52,030
Rises your chest your collarbones all

155
00:06:52,030 –> 00:06:56,289
rise as the air fills your belly and as

156
00:06:56,289 –> 00:07:00,759
you exhale the belly soften the chest

157
00:07:00,759 –> 00:07:03,180
fall

158
00:07:16,140 –> 00:07:19,230
and it is this breath that is the base

159
00:07:19,230 –> 00:07:26,910
of the yoga practice if ever in yoga you

160
00:07:26,910 –> 00:07:29,790
feel like a piece is too hard or you’re

161
00:07:29,790 –> 00:07:33,740
struggling just return to this breath

162
00:07:33,740 –> 00:07:37,670
you mindful of it

163
00:08:04,279 –> 00:08:08,569
imagine yourself inhaling white light in

164
00:08:08,569 –> 00:08:14,089
the form of positive energy imagine it

165
00:08:14,089 –> 00:08:15,979
filling your lungs and filling your

166
00:08:15,979 –> 00:08:24,109
entire body cascading through you and

167
00:08:24,109 –> 00:08:27,289
when you take your exhale imagine all

168
00:08:27,289 –> 00:08:30,289
the tension in your body all the stress

169
00:08:30,289 –> 00:08:34,309
anxiety all the negative emotions just

170
00:08:34,309 –> 00:08:39,158
fading away falling away with the exhale

171
00:08:40,990 –> 00:08:43,549
inhaling that white light letting it

172
00:08:43,549 –> 00:08:48,410
fill your entire body and then letting

173
00:08:48,410 –> 00:08:51,970
it all go with that breath

174
00:09:05,370 –> 00:09:09,440
I want you to be mindful of your body

175
00:09:09,440 –> 00:09:12,380
notice any areas you may be gripping

176
00:09:12,380 –> 00:09:17,130
whether it’s your jaw your neck or

177
00:09:17,130 –> 00:09:21,150
shoulders your koala bone anywhere there

178
00:09:21,150 –> 00:09:24,060
might be tension I invite you to use

179
00:09:24,060 –> 00:09:27,770
your breath to try and release it

180
00:09:35,840 –> 00:09:39,650
breath by breath imagine tension just

181
00:09:39,650 –> 00:09:46,340
falling away from those areas if you

182
00:09:46,340 –> 00:09:48,590
need to feel free to tilt your head from

183
00:09:48,590 –> 00:09:53,690
side to side slowly to help release the

184
00:09:53,690 –> 00:09:56,110
tension

185
00:10:16,380 –> 00:10:21,310
now draw your attention to your mood how

186
00:10:21,310 –> 00:10:26,500
are you feeling today are you feeling

187
00:10:26,500 –> 00:10:35,860
angry sad anxious stressed nervous are

188
00:10:35,860 –> 00:10:41,830
you feeling any negative emotion instead

189
00:10:41,830 –> 00:10:45,210
of instantly forcing these emotions away

190
00:10:45,210 –> 00:10:51,010
just acknowledge them notice them

191
00:10:51,010 –> 00:10:54,850
they’re mentally nod your head at them

192
00:10:54,850 –> 00:11:00,070
and accept them it is only when you let

193
00:11:00,070 –> 00:11:03,700
these emotions settle that you can allow

194
00:11:03,700 –> 00:11:13,590
them to just let go breath by breath

195
00:11:13,590 –> 00:11:17,410
acceptance is a large part of yoga if

196
00:11:17,410 –> 00:11:20,260
you can accept how you feel and you can

197
00:11:20,260 –> 00:11:24,480
begin to accept yourself even more

198
00:11:32,740 –> 00:11:34,720
draw your attention once more to your

199
00:11:34,720 –> 00:11:41,500
breath if ever you feel like your mind

200
00:11:41,500 –> 00:11:44,260
is wandering elsewhere to other thoughts

201
00:11:44,260 –> 00:11:46,570
to what you’re going to have for dinner

202
00:11:46,570 –> 00:11:49,720
tonight – your family – homework –

203
00:11:49,720 –> 00:11:55,690
stresses stop and draw your attention

204
00:11:55,690 –> 00:11:59,050
back to your breath let those thoughts

205
00:11:59,050 –> 00:12:03,190
melt away push them gently to another

206
00:12:03,190 –> 00:12:09,390
side of your mind and focus on the now

207
00:12:13,650 –> 00:12:17,800

208
00:12:17,800 –> 00:12:23,290

210
00:12:27,070 –> 00:12:32,520
the mind bring those hands to your mouth

211
00:12:32,520 –> 00:12:37,120
