Yin Yoga Snack for Deep Hip & Hamstring Release

Yin Yoga Snack for Deep Hip & Hamstring Release was not my favorite yin yoga practice. My hips have been pretty tight and sore lately so I was looking for something to help. And I definitely felt the happy baby pose at the end. That was the best part of this practice. I like happy … Continue reading Yin Yoga Snack for Deep Hip & Hamstring Release

Sunrise Yin Yoga

Sunrise Yin Yoga is a total body Yin Yoga practice from Aprille Walker/Yoga Ranger. I needed a total body practice this morning. Yesterday I "ran" a 5K for breast cancer and my feet were (still are) in crippling pain. (background--I have 2 plates and 12 screws in each heel, so being on my feet for … Continue reading Sunrise Yin Yoga

Yin Yoga Snack for IT Band Relief & Outer Hip Release

I really felt this Yin Yoga Snack. The poses weren't always the most comfortable but I didn't have any problems holding them for a few minutes. I really like Banana Pose. I didn't realize how much until I encountered it in Aprille's Yin Yoga workouts. It's because she has you cross your ankles. It is … Continue reading Yin Yoga Snack for IT Band Relief & Outer Hip Release

Yin AM: Yin Yoga for Upper Body Tension Relief

It's been a while since I have posted a Yin Yoga review. But that doesn't mean I haven't been doing Yin Yoga. I have actually been focusing on two of Yoga Ranger's practices that have already been reviewed here: Yin Yoga for Full Shoulder Flexibility & Release and Yin Yoga for Leg Day. Yin Yoga … Continue reading Yin AM: Yin Yoga for Upper Body Tension Relief

Yin Yoga for Full Shoulder Flexibility & Release

Yin Yoga for Shoulder Flexibility & Release is my first fairly long Yin Yoga practice. And it wasn't as difficult to get through as I thought it would be. My shoulder pain is getting worse, not better, but I don't blame that on the therapeutic things I am doing (Yin Yoga and Classical Stretch). I … Continue reading Yin Yoga for Full Shoulder Flexibility & Release

Yin Yoga for Leg Day

Yin Yoga for Leg Day┬áis a longer (for me) Yin Yoga practice from Yoga Ranger that stretches out the quads, hamstrings, inner thighs, hips and IT bands. It is 19:30 minutes long and, so far, the longest Yin Yoga practice I have done. I have really been tearing my lower body up with the workouts … Continue reading Yin Yoga for Leg Day

Yin Yoga Snack for Lower Back & Hamstrings

This morning I did Ilaria Montagnani's BodyStrike's Volume 1 so I needed some deep lower body stretching afterwards. A Yin Yoga Snack for the lower body seemed like a good choice. Yoga Ranger's Lower Back & Hamstrings was on my To Do list so it got chosen. This was a great, deep stretch. I did … Continue reading Yin Yoga Snack for Lower Back & Hamstrings

Yin Yoga Snack for Hips, Hip Flexors & Psoas

I have been mostly focusing on my shoulders with the Yin Yoga practices I have been doing but today I decided to give my hips some love. I did a Barlates: Barre Bootcamp workout this morning and my legs were really feeling it, so I decided to give this one a try. You only hold … Continue reading Yin Yoga Snack for Hips, Hip Flexors & Psoas

Yin Yoga Snack for Heart & Hips

Yin Yoga Snack for Heart & Hips is another short Yin Yoga practice that focuses on the chest, upper back and hips. This one was more what I expected from Yin Yoga. I was able to hold these poses for the entire period with no discomfort. The biggest problem for me was the rolled up … Continue reading Yin Yoga Snack for Heart & Hips

Yin Yoga Snack for Chest, Shoulders & Upper Back Release

This morning I did an actual Yin Yoga workout. This workout snack consists of primarily two poses that you hold for a long time. Since I have chronic shoulder pain, I thought this one was a good one to start with. It did not feel as good as I expected it to. It was actually … Continue reading Yin Yoga Snack for Chest, Shoulders & Upper Back Release
