In this weeks video we'll focus on yin yoga poses that open the shoulders and increase the flexibility in the spine. This is an intermediate yin yoga class and it is NOT appropriate for people that experience spine injuries or any health conditions that limit movement in this area!! Please only do this class if you know that your spine and low back is in a healthy condition. It's extremely important to not go past your edge and back out of any poses that just don't work for your body. We will start in sphinx pose, followed by melting heart / puppy pose and end in a supported bridge. You'll need a block or a bolster/dense pillow for this practice. If you're working on yoga poses like full wheel, bow pose or any other back bending pose, this will help you get there! What is Yin Yoga? Yin Yoga is a meditative practice that aims to balance out the yang energy in our lives. Although Yin Yoga uses many of the same poses as Hatha or Vinyasa yoga, the poses focus on the connective tissues of the body, such as fascia, tendons, and ligaments, rather than the muscles. There are 3 primary principles of Yin Yoga: 1. Find your edge: Never cross your body’s limits and risk any injury's. In Yin less is more. On a scale of 1-10 in levels of intensity we want to stay at about a 5. 2. Be still: Relax your muscles & don't fidget while in a pose to distract yourself. Focus on the breath. 3. Hold the pose: In Yin we hold the poses from 1-10 min, depending on the level of the student and the intensity of the pose. As the pose is held for longer periods of time, it challenges you to increase your inner strength for stillness and further surrender into the pose. βœ… PLEASE SUBSCRIBE!
