Melting Yin Practice

In this Melting Yin practice we will slowly and gently release into the poses. This series of poses is intended to create a cool and calming effect for the body and spirit. Yin is a style of yoga where most poses are done closer to the ground and are held for extended periods of time (in this class about 3 minutes per pose), allowing gravity to work for you.

You might like to play some relaxing cello or “spa” music in the background as you practice.

Suggested Props: 1-2 Blankets and a Timer for savasana.

**This was filmed during the COVID-19 crisis in the US. I’m offering it as a free class, but would greatly appreciate it if you would pay it forward. Please, if you have the means, purchase a pass or a gift card from your local yoga studio.

Supported Yoga – Seated Practice

You’ve probably heard that you can practice yoga just about anywhere and good news, you can.  Today I offer you a practice that can be done from the comfort of your chair.  A nice sturdy armless chair that is stationary is recommended.  Make sure your feet comfortably touch the floor when you are seated.

This Supported Yoga class is suitable for most levels and is a good fit for new practitioners. It is designed for students who prefer the support of a chair and the stability of a seated practice.  Practice only if you are fit to do so. Always choose the right level of challenge for you.

This class was filmed during the COVID-19 crisis in the US.  It’s offered for free use, but in return I would ask that you share the love.  If you can, support your local studio by purchasing a pass or a gift card. If you are unable to support your studio monetarily, please consider giving them a positive review, sharing a post or recommending their services to a friend.  Like many businesses in the service industry, yoga studios are being hit quite hard by this crisis.

Yin Practice for Runners

Take some time and give your legs some much needed TLC!  Throughout my half marathon preparations these are some of the Yin postures that helped me stay on track with training kept my legs happy.

Yin is a very slow and patient style of yoga.  On the surface it may appear easy or gentle, but the longer holds can be quite challenging.

I would recommend playing some soothing music in the background like cello or “spa” music.
