A yin yoga class to stretch your side body and unwind
🌛 NEW 30 DAY EVENING YOGA CHALLENGE 🌜
🎁 NEW LIMITED EDITION GIFT BOX 🎁 ALMOST SOLD OUT❗👉
Side body stretches are some of my favorite poses! They help open up the side of the neck, shoulder, ribcage, waist and IT band. These are often neglected areas of our bodies and releasing them is a wonderful way to feel lighter and a lot more comfortable!
I’m not using props in this practice but you might want to have a block or two close by. This is a 45 minute yin yoga class but be sure to give yourself an extra few minutes at the end to enjoy a longer savasana.
What is Yin Yoga? Yin yoga is often called the Yoga of the joints because unlike other styles of yoga, the emphasis is not on the muscles but on the deep connective tissue. Connective tissue is made up of fascia, ligaments and tendons which surround and form your joints. Yin yoga improves the range of motion in your joints and also strengthens them. The results and benefits are more flexibility and greater range of motion and also more stability within your joints. Although your muscles will also be stretched, that is not the focus of the practice. It is best to practice yin yoga while your muscles are cold and NOT warmed up, even if that sounds counter intuitive. The reason we do this is so that we can send the “stress” and the “Stretch” to the connective tissues. If the muscles are warm they will steal the focus away from the joints.
There are 3 principles of Yin Yoga.
1. Find your edge
2. Be still
3. Hold the pose
Use as many props as needed in Yin Yoga! Blocks, bolsters and straps are all great ways to support your body to make sure you are respecting your edge and not going too far.
