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.

Classical Stretch: Aging Backwards (or Age Reversing Workouts)

This is my first Classical Stretch review but Classical Stretch isn't new to me. I read about it a lot on fitness forums but was never really that interested in checking it out.

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.

This morning I did an actual Yin Yoga workout. This workout snack consists of primarily two poses that you hold for a long time.

It was actually … Continue reading Yin Yoga Snack for Chest, Shoulders & Upper Back Release
