Yin Yoga: Hamstrings Education

or this 30 minute practice, we will practice a very traditional Yin practice focused on the hamstrings, EXCEPT, we won’t be stretching the bejesus out of your hamstrings. I’ll teach you a more sustainable approach that will ACTUALLY help you to increase range of motion and decrease sensitivity. Not only is it more effective, but it’s a whole lot more enjoyable.

A Hug for Hardworking Hips

This practice is what you need if you’ve been struggling with tight, uncomfortable hips. In addition to some familiar Yin poses we will also be practicing bits and pieces from a Feldenkrais Method® lesson that I’ve borrowed.

Understanding Your Sacroiliac Joint

The SIJ is probably one of the most misunderstood joints. It’s also one that causes problems for many Yogis. In this class you will learn about the anatomy and movement of this incredible part of your body through the lens of a restorative-y Yin practice. Class is peppered with some somatic lessons for context. You will be amazed at how much better your cranky hip feels!

In the Loop

This is a super restorative-y Yin practice. We will be taking the common Supta Padangusthasana series (supine hand to big toe) in a VERY creative and supported way. As you melt into these poses I’ll get you into the loop as well about your hamstrings.

Back to the Shoulder

This practice will help you to build up your strength in your shoulder and it’s helpers and also confidence. The movements have been combined to maximize your awareness of these relationships so that your body may spontaneously discover more comfortable and efficient patterns of movement. It’s time to take the bubble wrap off of the shoulder. To heal you will need to reintroduce movements that feel powerful and build strength and resilience.
