Yoga Instructor on a mission to help others feel great with yoga.
Hey friends, this week's Yin Yoga class is a 50 minute practice to help you achieve your side splits! (Or as some people call it, middle splits). If you have tightness in your inner groin and hamstrings this class will definitely do the trick.
If practiced regularly, you will notice a lot of improvement in your flexibility. I plan on doing this routine a few times a week myself as middle/side splits are a big weakness of mine and something I want to improve on!
You'll need 2 blocks and a blanket in order to do this practice. I was joined by my little kitty Kitkat :)
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
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.
