Need a break? My short Yin Yoga inspired class is now on YouTube. Grab a blanket or big towel, find a quite spot and take 20 minutes to stretch and chill. If you like the class and can find it in your heart to subscribe to my channel, I would be massively grateful.
Yin yoga is based on the idea of yin and yang, opposing forces that retain balance in nature. Yin is the the cool, still and calm side, yang is the hot, dynamic and energetic side. As applied to the body, the yin is the tendons, ligaments and fascia while the yang would be the muscles and circulatory system.
In a Yin yoga class the poses are generally more gentle, held for a longer period of time, and closer to the floor. The idea is to place the body in a position close to the edge of the flexibility or range of motion, become still and allow the connective tissues to soften as time passes.
This short class is a great little sampler of yin yoga. Check it out and see if it’s for you. Here is the Link: Next Level Yoga Summer Porch Yin Yoga short class
