Full Body Yoga Stretch - Yin Yoga Without Props

About This Class

Enjoy this all level's yin yoga practice for a deep full body stretch, no props needed.

Hey friends, welcome to my backyard! I'm going to take you through an hour long yin yoga practice for flexibility and stress relief. This is a really relaxing full body stretch that can be practiced at any time of the day. It's suitable for all levels but you might want to have some props close by to help make some poses more accessible. If you don't own any blocks you can always use some blankets or pillows from around the house.

We'll be holding each pose for 3-4 minutes, remember not to go too deep into each pose. Try to relax into the stretch and let go.

There are 3 principles to yin yoga and it's crucial to keep these in mind!

1 - Find your edge: this means, don't push yourself! When you feel a bit of sensation, hold right here. Your body will naturally relax and open up the longer we're in it.

2 - Resolve to be still: Relax your muscles and let gravity do most of the work for you. Try not to stiffen up and contract yourself. If your muscles are tense it might be an indication that you've gone too far into a stretch.

3 - Hold the pose: Once you're fully relaxed, we're going to stay in the pose for 3-4 minutes. Please come out of it earlier if you need to! Don't push yourself.

I’m an Ottawa-based Yoga Instructor on a mission to help others feel great with yoga. I started practicing yoga in 2008 as a way to become more flexible and learn to manage stress and anxiety. Little did I know in a few short years I would have the privilege of becoming a teacher, passionately committed to sharing yoga with others who, like me, were sick of feeling less than vibrant.

Before I started practicing, I barely had any energy, I couldn’t quiet my mind for a single minute and always seemed to have aches and pains in my legs and lower back. Once I started practicing regularly, bit by bit I became stronger, calmer and braver. Yoga is now ingrained in my daily life in a fundamental way. It helps me meet any challenges I may face by teaching me to be present, focused and receptive

THE JOURNEY

Through my Yoga with Kassandra YouTube channel, I’ve been able to introduce Yin Yoga to hundreds of thousands of people from across the globe. What started as my own personal sadhana to ease stress and anxiety quickly unraveled into my greatest passion, an exciting career and a whole new way of life!

My aim is to create accessible, easy to follow yoga classes that you can do in the comfort of your own home.

I hope you find value in my offerings and thank you so much for stopping by.

Namaste,

Kassandra
