In this Yin practice we will use the wall to create a supported environment. This series of poses is intended to create a grounding and calming effect for the body and spirit. It would be a lovely practice just before bed. 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: A wall, 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. 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.
This class is beginner friendly and suitable for most levels. Practice only if you are fit to do so. Always choose the right level of challenge for you.
