Want to try yoga but too intimidated by the complicated poses? Or, do you think you’re simply not flexible enough to contort yourself into a pretzel? Then, you’re going to love 3 Week Yoga Retreat, coming in September exclusively to Beachbody On Demand.
3 Week Yoga Retreat is perfect if you’re new to the yoga mat, as this beginner yoga program will guide you through three weeks of basic yoga classes and help you feel less stressed, improve your flexibility, and increase your balance. The program doesn’t require any equipment (though a yoga mat, yoga block, and a strap are all helpful), and we’ve included a modifier for each of the moves to help ease you in.
3 Week Yoga Retreat makes the moves easy to understand and was designed so you can easily follow along. Beachbody did an extensive search to find four trainers that you’ll not only love, but who are also masters of the practice. This trusted team of four will guide you through each session with cueing so precise you could do the program blindfolded (not that we’d recommend that).
After completing one 30-minute or shorter class a day, you’ll have a deeper understanding of yoga by the end of 21 days. You’ll also have the confidence to hold your own in any yoga class!
Each week builds upon the prior one, and the 21-day program kicks off with Week 1 led by Vytas Baskauskas, a trainer who already has a dedicated following in Los Angeles (and, yes you may have seen him on Survivor!). He’s been studying and practicing yoga for more than 15 years, and approaches the discipline in a functional and technical way that will help you understand not just the poses, but also why they’re important. During that first week Vytas will teach you yoga fundamentals so you can build a solid foundation for the weeks to come.
The Classes in 3 Week Yoga Retreat
Mondays are Core. The foundation of yoga starts in your core. This class focuses on exercises that engage, activate, and build awareness of these very important muscles.
Tuesdays are Stretch. This class is aimed at helping you stretch, extend, and lengthen all the muscles in your body with a variety of poses.
Wednesdays are Balance. Challenge yourself with a series of different postures that engage the core and help you develop better balance inside and out.
Thursdays are Flow. In this class you’ll put together everything you’ve learned so far and connect it with your breathing in a nonstop “flowing” format. This is Vinyasa Flow, Beachbody-style.
Fridays are Flow to Go, a shorter, more advanced version of Thursday’s class that features a little less cueing.
Saturdays are Relax. Faith helps you unwind from your week with this relaxing class.
Sundays are Take 10. These are short, 10-minute classes that will help you wake up, wind down, or work those abs. Pick one or do all three.
