Overview

Hi everyone, thank you so much for joining me in this (nearly) hour long yin yoga practice for self-care, rest and relaxation. This is a full body flexibility class suitable for all levels. I recommend having two blocks nearby or a bolster.

If you’ve been feeling depleted, stressed, burnt out or overwhelmed, this is a lovely practice to help you soothe your nervous system and get back to yourself. I don’t talk very much when I teach yin yoga because I want you to take the opportunity to go inward and listen to your body’s inherent wisdom. Less is always more in yin yoga.

I’ll take you through poses like supported fish, supported bridge/butterfly, half butterfly, straddle, pigeon pose, child’s pose 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
