Beginner Yoga Poses From A Celebrity Instructor

Beginner Yoga Poses From A Celebrity Instructor . A new yoga instructor has arrived in town — or at least on the Alo Moves platform. Annie Moves, who has taught numerous well-known celebrities, is the newest Alo Moves yoga instructor. The famous yoga teacher, whose actual name is Anabella Landa, is leading an easy class with basic yoga poses for her first-ever yoga series on the platform, which you may wish to implement into your at-home routine.

Let’s face it: working out at home may be difficult. You need the incentive to work out rather than merely watch another episode of the show you’re currently watching on Netflix. Alo Moves, fortunately, is one of the internet venues that is making it a little easier for you to find time in your schedule to move your body. You may watch stuff like yoga workouts and meditation videos from some of the top instructors whenever you want with the home workout service.

Alo brought me to their Beverly Hills headquarters for a fun flow to get a taste of what’s to come from Annie’s online basic yoga session. With the new year just around the corner, you may have some wellness and fitness goals for 2023. Here are some of the yoga poses for beginners that we did in Annie’s class if you need some incentive to start your fitness practice. These ten simple yoga positions will not only provide you with a quick burn and instant energy, but you can also claim to have been trained by a celebrity yoga instructor.

Bootiful Baby Flow

Beginner Yoga Poses From A Celebrity Instructor

You should start by lying flat on your mat in Shavasana. Try to stay in the moment by focusing on your breathing. You’ll then strike the “happy baby” stance, with your legs up and bent and your arms gripping onto your feet. Roll around to make sure your back is comfortable, and then lift your legs straight into the air after a few breaths.

Flex and point your toes while your legs are up there to get your feet moving and your ankles warmed up. You will rock forward and back after around eight breaths. This Yoga will stretch out your back, and you’ll eventually want to finish sitting upright.

Sitting Side Bend

Cross your legs and find a comfortable position while seated. Once there, begin stretching from side to side. This is a side bend when seated. Bring your elbows down to the mat to extend the stretch even farther. After extending on both sides, make a circle with your torso. This is known as a seated hip circle, and it does stretch out your hips if you sit all day at work and are stiff.

Dancing Lion Cat-Cow Pose


Move from your seated position to a tabletop pose on the floor, with your arms shoulder-width apart and your legs hip-width apart on a mat. From here, you’ll stretch out your spine in a cat-cow stance. You’ll want to do a balancing table stance after you’ve done this for roughly eight counts. This is the stage at which you raise the opposite arm and leg. It is first a balancing act, but it works on your core.

After roughly eight counts, lower your arm and leg. Perform a dancing lion stance in the same tabletop position, moving your entire body in a full circle. Switch to the opposite side for the balancing table stance after around eight counts.

Child’s to Cobra Pose


Sit back in a warm child’s stance after your cat-cow to a dancing lion. Lift up and into a cobra stance once you’ve taken a pause. This should feel natural, so attempt to move from one stance to the next and back for roughly eight counts.

Squat in Malasana


This pose may be challenging because you’ll need to hold yourself with your hands on the ground. You should aim to find your center in a deep squat with your arms out in front of you. Annie noted that this pose is great for releasing any emotional tension in your hips.

Knee to Elbow Downward Dog


Even beginners are familiar with downward dogs, in which you place your legs and arms on the mat in an upside-down V. After a few moments in this position, bring one of your knees to your chest and then do the opposite side.

Strong Lunge


Bring one of your legs forward and reach up into a high lunge stance after your downward dog practice. Hold this for a few seconds with your arms in the air. Slowly lower your leg to the mat after around eight counts. You should strive to do this while maintaining your chest straight and your arms high. Twist so you’re facing the leg that’s up after your knee is on the ground. Hold for around eight counts before returning to downward dog and repeating on the opposing side.

From the Runner’s Lunge to the Pigeon Pose


The next sequence you should try begins with a runner’s lunge. You do, however, want to bring the leg in the front to the outside of your arms. This may feel strange at first, but you will feel a stretch. After you’ve held that position, place the opposing shoulder on your mat and twist.

After a few breaths in that position, return to the runner’s lunge and lower your front leg into a pigeon stance. You can either bend forward for a deeper stretch or keep erect with your chest elevated in this position. In either case, hold for around eight counts before repeating on the opposite side.

Sitting Eagle


At this point, you should return to a seated position with one leg crossed over the other. Twist your torso from this position and place your opposing arm over the top leg. Hold for around eight counts before returning to the center. Then, cross your arms as if they were legs, but with the opposing arm to leg on top, and lean over. This is an eagled seated stance.

Bring your legs forward and stretch over before continuing on the opposing side. Keep your feet flexed for a more intense burn.

Shavasana


Annie completed the lesson by returning to Shavasana. Try to relax both your body and mind by lying flat on your mat. If possible, dim the lights and play some calming music. Annie also went around the class and placed a towel on each of our brows. There were also some essential oils. This certainly helped us relax and calm down after our workout.
