Overview

I love yin, and I really love practicing it in the morning! I’m doing a voice over in this video simply because my microphone wasn’t working that day. Join me in this 15 minute yin yoga class which will take you through poses like reclined butterfly, reclined swan, spinal twist, sphinx pose, child’s pose and some neck releases.

This is a simple sequence suitable for all experience levels and no props are required.

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. I usually teach poses held for around 4-5 minutes. Learn to surrender and keep a timer close by if needed.
