Get deep into your backbends and improve your flexibility with this 45 min yin yoga class for your spine and shoulders. Hey yogis, this week I’m doing a highly requested Yin Yoga class! This is all about backbends and poses that open up the heart and shoulders. This is NOT appropriate for anyone with spine injuries such as bulging or herniated discs!! I cannot state this enough! I would say that this is an advanced Yin Yoga class. You need 2 blocks in order to do this practice and if you have a cat, even better ๐Ÿ˜‰ We’ll play with poses like Sphinx, Seal, Supported Fish and Lying Chest Opener. My cat Cleo joins us for most of it, isn’t she adorable?? Practicing this class and these postures on a regular basis is a surefire way to deepen your backbends and increase your back flexibility. If you’re working on Bow Pose, Wheel or any other backbending pose, this class will help you get there. Because it’s so intense, you need to be able to stay present with your breath and BACK OFF if it’s too much! Again, this is SO important. The goal is not to injure ourselves.

    I loved it. It felt challenging but extremely rewarding. I definitely want to add this one to my list of favourites. Can we have more backbends, please, Kassandra? ๐Ÿ˜‰
