This class is perfect for you if you experience any kind of pain or tension in your neck, shoulders, upper or lower back! Nowadays we all spend long hours sitting at a desk at work or hunching over the phone. Taking just 30 minutes to release and stretch out the upper body area will help you to ease any stress away, leaving you with a feeling of increased range of motion and maybe even a happier mood! We begin in a seated position with some simple neck stretches. Next we work on opening the shoulders with melting heart / puppy pose, followed by eagle arms. Then we do caterpillar pose to stretch along the posterior chain (you spine). We end in savasana. You may need a block and a blanket for this class. What is Yin Yoga?

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!
