Yin Yoga Practice for the Hips and Chest

Welcome to this week’s yoga practice! I was so happy to see comments, likes, and views on last week’s yin-style practice for the hips and back. It’s my most viewed and liked yoga video so far. Thank you!!! Based on y’all’s feedback, this week I’m sharing a similarly-paced class with yin yoga for hips and chest.

This week’s sequence is entirely different from last week’s, so don’t worry – you won’t be bored! Poses focus on the hips, chest, and shoulders, all of which are common problem areas, and the class opens with a short meditation on the breath to help you carry the feeling of calm, steady breathing into the practice. As always, variations and modifications are offered to help make the poses accessible to everyone!

You may see my Spire clip sneaking out into view a couple of times during the video. I really love wearing my Spire during yoga practice and then checking the app to see if I hit any “calm” or “focused” streaks. I was so excited to see I achieved a couple of both while filming this video! I’ve had several questions from people asking about the Spire – I’ll be posting more about it on Tuesday. =)

And speaking of the future – on Monday a week and a half from now I’ll be launching a totally free “5 Day Mindset Reset Challenge!” It’s going to be so much fun and only uses 5-10 minutes of your day. In just a few days, you’ll learn how to destress your routine, bring simple mindfulness into your everyday life, and so much more. I actually have all the content ready to go, so hanging on to it until an official launch date is very difficult for me! It’s going to be great. Stay tuned for more details!

How do you feel about the slower-paced yoga classes? Do you want to see more, or are you ready for something more rapid next week?

    I love a loooong yin practice that gets my fascia! I also like yoga nidra for times when I need restoration and realignment but don’t have time for extra sleep.

      I’d love to make a longer yin video, but right now I’m limited by my equipment! Hopefully one day soon. =) You know what else I think doesn’t get enough credit? Nadi Shodhana Pranayama. I really need to incorporate some alternate nostril breathing into an upcoming video!

      More restorative yoga practices are so great for active recovery days, and the mental discipline is really beneficial, too. And, of course, yoga can be a workout all of its own! I hope you enjoy yoga if you get the chance to do more!
