Yoga for Beginners: Calming the Mind and Lengthening the Lower Body with Forward Folds

With the fast pace of modern living, it’s all too easy to get into patterns of chronic tension and over-thinking. Forward folds help us find calm and release: they take our attention away from the usual hub-bub of daily life and turn it inward to help us find greater quiet. Forward folds also lengthen the muscles of our legs, including often-tight hamstrings. In addition, they create length and space in the spine, which can counteract compression from long hours of sitting. In this video, join Claudine Beeson as she guides you through the steps to safe, effective forward folds.
