Overview

Welcome everyone! I have a lovely and relaxing yin yoga sequence for you today. This is a wonderful practice to soothe your nervous system and relax deeply. You can practice at any time of the day but this would definitely be a lovely class to do before bed as all of the poses are done laying down.

We’ll be using one block for supported bridge pose but you can use a bolster, a pillow or a few folded up blankets instead. This is suitable for all experience levels. We’ll go through poses like reclined butterfly, reclined swan, banana pose, reclined knee pile, supported bridge and savasana.

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

    Loved the practice, unfortunately the backgroundmusic for me is very irritating. I usually love the backgroundmusic you choose, this time I couldnβ€˜t listen till the end. Maybe just me πŸ˜…
