Welcome to my channel, I’m so pleased to take you through this yummy 35 minute yin yoga class paired with affirmations for health. This is a full body yoga class that will help you increase flexibility. It’s best suited for intermediate students and you’ll need two blocks.
We will focus equally on physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health. I’ll take you through poses like supported bridge, caterpillar, reclined saddle, laying spinal twist, elevated reclined butterfly and savasana.
In each pose you’ll hear me state one affirmation which you are encouraged to internally repeat. Notice how the statement makes you feel and if it creates resistance. Keep a journal close by to make note of anything that may have come up for you.
– I treat my body with love and respect
– I allow all parts of me to be expressed
– In this moment, I release all thoughts of worry
– When challenges arise, I stay anchored in hope
– I allow myself to slow down and rest
– My self-esteem is growing day by day
– I send healing energy to all parts of my body
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
