[Weekly Workout] Yin Yoga Release for the Upper Body
Relax and release the upper body with this rejuvenating Yin Yoga sequence…
Yin Yoga is a slow and deep yoga style that focuses on stretching and specifically targets the connective tissues, such as the ligaments, bones, and even the joints of the body that normally are not exercised all that much in more active yoga styles. This amazing Yin Yoga class is for anyone who spends a lot of time seated at a desk, driving, or working at the computer! Release, relax, and let go of stiffness, tension, and pain in the upper body as you flow through this slow, deep-stretch-focused session.
This 20-minute sequence is designed to specifically target tight areas in your neck, shoulders, arms, and upper back. Enjoy long, slow holds that will encourage your body to let go of both physical, mental, and emotional stress.
Remember to breathe deeply and slowly, and move deliberately through each pose. Inhaling fully will help to oxygenate and energize both your body and mind, and exhaling equally deeply helps to melt away tension and stress – both mental and physical.
Take the time to really relax into each stretch and appreciate the flexibility you are creating in your muscles and joints. Be gentle with yourself, and pay attention to what feels good. Then do more of that!
