Overview

Ok guys, fair warning, this one is intense! Here’s a 75 minute yin yoga class for deep flexibility with extra long holds. Normally when I teach yin yoga I hold each pose for about 3-4 minutes. In this practice, I’m holding them for about 7-8 minutes, which makes this class best suited for intermediate to advanced students.

The poses themselves aren’t all that challenging but since we’re in them for so long it might not be suitable for everyone. Don’t underestimate the mental challenge with this one! I’m not using any props and we’re going to do poses like half butterfly, swan, sphinx, seal and cat pulling it’s tail.

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 7-8 minutes. Please come out of it earlier if you need to! Don’t push yourself.

    I loved it! I found this treasure right before a meditation at the Chicago Zen Buddhist Temple, my very first experience in a Buddhist environment! The yin yoga induced a deep meditative state of mind and I had a powerful and healing morning!
