If you spend a lot of time sitting down during the day at the desk or in the car, this is the perfect class for you! It focuses on opening up the thighs, quads & hipflexors as well as a little bit into the hips & knee joints. In this sequence there are only two poses included: baby dragon, also called low lunge and a quad stretch. The quadriceps are big muscles at the front of the thighs that can get quite tight, especially for those sitting for long periods of time or athletes. This routine targets the entire front of the thigh, from the hip flexors down to the top of the knee. This is a great yin-style yoga sequence to do if you have knee tension, although be aware that people with serious knee pain & injuries shouldn't practice this! 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 bodyโ€™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. โœ… PLEASE SUBSCRIBE!
