Yin Yoga for Hormones - Yoga for Adrenal Fatigue & Thyroid Issues

About This Class

Restore hormonal balance with this 30 minute yin yoga practice for the endocrine system

Hey yogis, this week I have a very special yin yoga practice for you! If you have hormonal issues, this 30 minute yin yoga practice might be just what you need.

While yoga is not a cure, it can help support the healthy functioning of your endocrine system. Hormonal imbalances such as adrenal fatigue or thyroid problems can be aggravated with stress. By practicing restorative styles of yoga like Yin Yoga we can soothe the nervous system and reduce stress. We will do poses that encourage blood flow to the adrenals, pancreas and thyroid. You'll need 2 blocks for this practice.

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

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
