Hi everyone, thanks for joining me! I thought it was time to do a brand new chakra yin yoga class paired with affirmations from my new I Radiate Joy affirmation card deck.
AFFIRMATION CARD DECK: https://bit.ly/affirmationdeck
I’ll take you through 7 yin yoga poses that activate the chakras from the root to the crown. I’m using one block in this class but rest assured it’s not necessary, you can leave it out or substitute with some cushions or blankets. This class is suitable for all levels.
This is more than just a yoga class where we stretch and strengthen. Instead, this class calls on us to dive a little bit deeper and use our yoga practice to make meaningful changes in our daily lives. The chakras can be used as metaphors and inspiration for emotional healing and well being.

– I am grounded in the present moment
– Life supports me in every way
– My power lies in my sensitivity
– My journey is my own and I claim it now
– I release all fears of not being good enough
– I am worthy of love and acceptance
– I speak my mind with clarity and compassion
– I allow all parts of me to be expressed
– My intuition is always guiding me
– I am always protected and divinely guided
I hope you find this class beneficial in some way.
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. Although your muscles will also be stretched, that is not the focus of the practice. It is best to practice yin yoga while your muscles are cold and NOT warmed up, even if that sounds counter intuitive. The reason we do this is so that we can send the “stress” and the “Stretch” to the connective tissues. If the muscles are warm they will steal the focus away from the joints.
That was a perfect reset on a Monday morning – thank you 🙂
Yay! So glad you enjoyed it

Again fantastic yin chakra. Thank you👍👍🙏🦩
Starting my day with a smile! Thank you 🙏🏽✨
I love the combination of chacras, the visualissation of the coulours, the affirmation and the poses. I always thought that yin yoga and meditation is hard for me. But this is perfect. Love the affirmation “I release all fears of not being good enough”. Thank you so much for this wonderful practise 🙂
Thank you! Glad it resound with you
I connected most with the root chakra because that is the beginning of it all, right?
It is indeed
🙏🙏🙏 this sequence was a moment of serendipity. Thank you.
LOVE it. This was just perfect for this evening. I feel mostly connected with the root and the solar plexus chalre🤗❤️
What a wonderful gift! Thank youso very much for this beautiful session. 💕
That was wonderful, thank you. I swapped Sphinx for reclined fish, which I think worked well and I actually said out loud I love you Kassandra when you said childs pose was next – my favourite and just what I needed right then. Great start to my day, thank you ❤️
How wonderful that you listened to what you needed and altered in the moment
This was a wonderful yin sequence! I truly love all of the chakra-themed classes. I felt off during the sacral pose so I did a sacral series this afternoon and I am feeling balanced!
Wonderful! Good for you noticing that and taking action
Thank you for this new chakra and affirmations series – practice many of them frequently and so nice to see this new version. A peaceful feeling after this one.
You’re welcome!! Happy to
What a beautiful practice. I feel so peaceful and centered now. Maybe a chakra affirmation card deck would be an idea?
A very nice and gentle way to activate the chakras! I love and appreciate the complimentary affirmations as well! I am a Kundalini yoga instructor and will add and use this in my personal practice at home! Thank you Kassandra!
So glad you enjoyed them
Being my first longer yin practice I am not sure what I think. Is it normal to get tense and shake during some of the poses? I tried to just relax and melt into them all but had some trouble in a couple. I do feel relaxed a bit, hopefuly with time I can melt into it
That’s totally normal. If you need to ease off or come out of the pose early. It can take a while for the body to adjust to long holds. And the mind as well
I just loved this practice! I feel a deep sense of joy and calm afterwards, as well as very centered! Thank you!! 💗
Spiritful, mindful practice! exactly what I needed… Thank you Kassandra! Namaste🙏🙏❤️
Thank you 🙏🌻
Everything is perfectly IN BALANCE NOW 🙏 NAMASTE 🧘♀️💕
Love this! I’ve done it twice now. I adore the chakra classes. Thank you, Kassandra. 🌸
I changed the throat to fish pose, and the root to deer pose as that felt better for my body, but overall love this. Also my 2nd tome
I changed the root pose to deer and the throat pose to supported fish as that felt better for my body but i overall loved this soothing class.
Many emotions came out, quiet, happy, angry, sad. It was very powerful! Thanks Kass
What a wonderful experience! Thanks for sharing
