Yin yoga is a favorite of mine. It's not the physically challenging practice that a vinyasa flow is, but it's equally as effective. Yin, in my opinion, should be an integral part of everyone's yoga practice because it stretches the connective tissue around the joints which may prevent injury and promote flexibility. Aside from that, it is incredibly effective to alleviate anxiety, stress and tension.
Don't let it's sloth-like pace fool you. At first glance it might seem boring because yin yoga is really slow. I mean really, really slow. In an hour long class you might do maybe six poses total, possibly less. As one person commented on my youtube channel, it might seem like "lazy yoga", but I assure you it's not.
Rather, yin requires a serious discipline and concentration. Definitely not for the lazy!
Anyway, let's get down to it. In this video I use two props: a bolster and a blanket. Both are vital to the practice, but if you're fresh outta both you could substitute a firm cushion and a thick beach towel respectively and they should work just fine. Below, I linked what I used, in case you want to check them out.
I hope you enjoy the practice! Please let me know how it goes for you. If you enjoy it and want it on your device for travel or times when you don't have internet, it's available for purchase. And don't forget, if you ever have a yoga video request, just let me know in the comments below. Happy to help!
