Hey yogis, I’m back with a brand new Yin Yoga class filmed in beautiful Puerto Viejo, Costa Rica! This class was a special request from one of my subscribers and focuses on opening up the quads, thighs and hips flexors.
There aren’t very many yin yoga poses that focus on the quads, but there are four and those are the ones we’ll be doing today. The poses include: laying quad stretch, twisted lizard/dragon, reclined hero and cat pulling it’s tail.
The quadriceps are big muscles at the front of the thighs that can get quite tight, especially for athletes. This practice will target the entire front of the thigh, from the hip flexors all the way down to the top of the knee. This is a great yin yoga class to do if you have knee tension, although people with acute knee injuries should not practice this!
Make sure you have lots of props such as a blanket, two blocks and a strap.
