Yoga Instructor on a mission to help others feel great with yoga.
Indulge in a 90 min yin yoga class for full body flexibility and relaxation. Since I started my youtube channel I've gotten SO many requests from you guys to do some longer Yin Yoga classes! It's not that I don't like longer sessions, they just obviously demand much more time to film and edit. However, I've finally gotten around to creating a 90 minute Yin Yoga class for an OMazing mini retreat at home!
This full body stretch Yin Yoga practice will help you open up your hips, shoulders, low back, hamstrings and quads. It's head to toe yumminess! I'm using 2 blocks and a big bolster for this practice. If you don't own a bolster, don't worry about it! You can grab a big cushion or a few bed pillows or even just use your blocks.
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.
