An intense 30 min yin yoga class for hip & hamstring flexibility
Namaste yogis, this class was filmed during my trip to Cuba in February. I know.. took me 4 months to upload.. I'm kind of a procrastinator... but here it is! This is what I call an "intense" yin yoga class because it includes what I think are the most challenging yin yoga postures. It focuses a lot on hamstrings with some hip openers as well. We will do poses like splits, wide leg forward fold, low lunge and we begin and end with a short meditation. I hope you enjoy 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
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.
