I’ve designed this session to be done without any props; however if you have the props at home, of course you can include them in. In this session we’ll work down the body from the neck to the soles of the feet. We’ll release tension held in the upper back and then focus on stretching the posterior chain. The posterior chain includes all the muscle that reside in the back of the body. If you’e feel tight in the hamstrings (back of the legs), this will be a good one for you.
Yin Yoga’s biggest lesson is to surrender. As vague as that may sound, I believe it makes more sense the longer you do it for. Its a realisation of what we’re holding on to that no longer serves us any purpose. This practice is a time to gradually let go of emotional and/or physical strain that ultimately wears us down over time.
