Yoga Instructor on a mission to help others feel great with yoga.
A yin yoga class to get you into the splits with deep stretches. A few weeks ago I was asked to create a class that would help students prepare for splits pose and so I've created this 50 min Yin Yoga class that will help you do just that! Even if splits is not a part of your practice, these long held stretches will drastically improve your hip, hamstring and quad flexibility, all of which are required for the splits.
You will need a block or two as well as a strap for this class. If you have a smaller bolster, grab that too!
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.
