Hey yogis, I’m happy to be expanding my yin yoga without props series with an hour long class this week. This is a great full body stretch you can do anytime, anywhere. You won’t need any blocks, bolsters or straps!
We’ll target your hips, hamstrings, chest and shoulders in this 60 minute practice. Yin Yoga is meant to be a passive practice where we focus on the fascia and deep connective tissues. Try to relax your muscles as you hold the poses for 2-5 minutes on each side. Remember not to push past your edge, less is always more!
What is Yin Yoga? Yin yoga is often called the Yoga of the joints because unlike other styles of yoga, the emphasis is not on the muscles but on the deep connective tissue. Connective tissue is made up of fascia, ligaments and tendons which surround and form your joints. Yin yoga improves the range of motion in your joints and also strengthens them. The results and benefits are more flexibility and greater range of motion and also more stability within your joints.
There are 3 principles of Yin Yoga.
1. Find your edge
2. Be still
3. Hold the pose
Find your edge means respecting your body’s limits and not pushing too far and risking injury. Pull back a little bit and as you hold the pose you will be able to go deeper into it without pushing too far or hurting yourself.
Being still means that once you are in the pose it is important to completely relax your muscles so the benefits can get into the connective tissues and joints. Try not to fidget or move or distract yourself, this is a meditative practice. Breathe deeply in and out through the nose.
Holding the pose means that in Yin Yoga a pose can be held for 1-10 minutes depending on the pose performed and on the comfort level of the student.
