Lower Body Yin Yoga - 20 min Deep Stretch for Hamstring Flexibility

Duration 21m

A 20 min Lower Body Yin Yoga sequence providing a deep stretch for tight legs & hamstrings! ✨🕉 Download my FREE Yogi's Guide to Stress Relief 👉 http://bit.ly/krystressguide [PLEASE CLICK “SHOW MORE” 👇] Hi yogis and welcome to my YouTube Channel! This week I’m offering you a Yin Yoga sequence for increasing flexibility in your hamstrings. If you’ve been feeling tight throughout your hamstrings from excessive sitting or running, this class is perfect for you! Since everything is connected in our bodies, the yoga poses also target & stretch the areas of the hips & low back, because they also play a role in whether your hamstrings feel tight or not. You will need a block and strap for this practice. If you don’t have the strap, you can use a belt or a towel, which works just as well. 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. ✅ PLEASE SUBSCRIBE!
