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.

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 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

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

Yoga Snack for Shoulder, Side Body, Chest, Back & Neck Stretch

A reader of this blog introduced me to the idea of Yin Yoga and recommended the Yoga Ranger as a great YouTube Yogi. I did some research on Yin Yoga and visited the Yoga Ranger site on YouTube. I really liked what I saw. The Yogi is Aprille Walker and she has a lot of … Continue reading Yoga Snack for Shoulder, Side Body, Chest, Back & Neck Stretch

Barlates: Warm & Stretch/Standing

I was very interested when I saw that Linda Wooldridge had created a new series called Warm & Stretch. Not just because I am in recovery mode and looking for easier workouts. Warm & Stretch workouts look and sound like something I would use in conjunction with yoga on my yoga Sundays--regardless of what my … Continue reading Barlates: Warm & Stretch/Standing

Yogini

Yogini is another yoga fusion workout by Ellen Barrett. It is also available for free on YouTube (at least right now it is), which is how I did it this morning. This was a tough workout! For me at least. It is a flowing fusion workout. You never hold any pose longer than 4 counts … Continue reading Yogini

Gentle Yoga Stretch

Gentle Yoga Stretch is another yoga/flexibility collection from Jessica Smith. Jessica has quite a few of these types of workouts and she does them very well. These are more excellent and thorough yoga practices to add to my collection. I didn't find them as gentle as the title promises but that could be due to … Continue reading Gentle Yoga Stretch
