Overview

Celebrate the new moon by setting your intention for the coming weeks. The new moon is a time of rest and introspection which allows us to ask important questions like:
“what do I need?”
“what is most important to me right now?”
“what change do I need to make?”

To honor this time of deep inquiry I’ll be guiding you through a gentle full body yin yoga practice. Have two blocks close by for this class or substitute with some pillows or cushions. We’ll be staying in the poses for around 3 minutes on each side. I recommend keeping a journal close by so you can write down your thoughts and insights at the end of our class.

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

    Good Yin parctise, I was able to get through it. I normally can’t let go and stay in the poses, but this one was doable for me. I also like the ambient soundscape. My intention is clarity and to set intentions for the next year – so I will join the Art of Abundance challenge again. Thanks so much, Kassandra 🙂

    • Kassandra

      Look forward to seeing you in there

    Needed this practice today. Love the focus on the end of the exhale. Thank you 🌼

  7. Bhakti Gajjar

    All great apart from the half butterfly variation because I find I cannot do any forward fold despite months of yin practise – my hips just don’t want to fold forward

    • Kassandra

      Try lifting the hips up on a prop to help tilt the pelvis and initiate the fold from the right place

    No nice and great new music thank you❤️

  9. Karen Vaurs

    Very nice practice to celebrate the New Moon with you Kassandra! My intention came clear to my mind right away, and I could then enjoy the time of quietness I spent with myself. Thank you very much! I agree with the other comments: This lunar music was particularly relaxing!

    • Kassandra

      Ooh such a beautiful experience

  10. Hasmig Adjeleian

    This was very meaningful to me. I really struggle to stay in the present and had to work hard at this. I realize how much work i have to do in this area. I have been told that i tend to live in the future and its so true. One comment Kassandra is that i found the music accompanying the yoga very distracting. The sound seemed tinny and at one point it was a relief when the piano started playing. I guess im not in sync with the other comments. Oh well. 🤷‍♀️

    Great music, class, thanks Kass!🎄

  12. kuestenfuchs

    I also really enjoyed the music in this one, it went so well with the theme of the flow. Would you share the artist?

  13. HCS 0311

    Thank you! I loved this one, very soothing and quite a lot of opening on the lower body.

  14. Elke Schwalm

    This is a good first step into yin for me. I love the piano at the beginning and inbetween, but it distracts me as I keep thinking – what is it, I know it, but can’t get it. So, what is this tune? The second piano part reminds me of Lou Reed’s Perfect Day – what is a good song to carry me through this day 🙂 And I really love the spheric music! Thank you, Kassandra.
