Hey friends, welcome to my backyard! I’m going to take you through an hour long yin yoga practice for flexibility and stress relief. This is a really relaxing full body stretch that can be practiced at any time of the day. It’s suitable for all levels but you might want to have some props close by to help make some poses more accessible. If you don’t own any blocks you can always use some blankets or pillows from around the house.
We’ll be holding each pose for 3-4 minutes, remember not to go too deep into each pose. Try to relax into the stretch and let go.
There are 3 principles to yin yoga and it’s crucial to keep these in mind!
1 – Find your edge: this means, don’t push yourself! When you feel a bit of sensation, hold right here. Your body will naturally relax and open up the longer we’re in it.
2 – Resolve to be still: Relax your muscles and let gravity do most of the work for you. Try not to stiffen up and contract yourself. If your muscles are tense it might be an indication that you’ve gone too far into a stretch.
3 – Hold the pose: Once you’re fully relaxed, we’re going to stay in the pose for 3-4 minutes. Please come out of it earlier if you need to! Don’t push yourself.

Nice series of poses – the birdsong really calmed the mind and helped to relax into a deeper practice.
This was so different. I can’t seem to stay still for that long. My body moves as I stretch, or I feel I need some adjustment to do it “right”, or something hurts. I did feel in one pose this sense of being, existing, here I am. My first memory as a child, realizing I exist.
