Try my new 30 min yin yoga practice to increase your back flexibility
Hey yogis, this week I'm pleased to be bringing you a 30 min yin yoga class to help you increase flexibility in your spine. If you'd like to get into some deeper backbends, this is a great practice to do on a regular basis. We'll open up your shoulders and chest as well as increase flexibility along your spine from upper to lower back. We'll get into the pectorals and hip flexors a well. You'll need two blocks close by.
This is a pretty intense yin yoga practice that I would characterize as intermediate to advanced due to the nature of the poses. This isn't to say that beginners can't do this practice but please be mindful of not pushing yourself or going too far. This is not appropriate if you have slipped or herniated discs.
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.
There are 3 principles of Yin Yoga.
1. Find your edge
2. Be still
3. Hold the pose
