Yin Yoga Sequence: Hips & Hamstrings (20 minute)

I have a great Yin Yoga video for you this week! I love love love vinyasa yoga and have practiced it almost daily for 10+ years.  But Yin Yoga has been a love of mine since my yoga teacher training.  

When I first started taking yin yoga classes, I wasn't sure I liked it at all.  Then I found an awesome teacher and my love for yin yoga grew.  Because I have a toddler, I find my yin yoga practice happens mostly at night before bed.  It helps to calm me down after teaching classes and running around after my toddler all day.  I also find the mornings after an evening yin yoga practice, I feel a little less sore and achy!     

Let's face it, many, okay most of us hold tension in our hips.  This has been so true for me because I'm a runner and since having a child.  It's like overnight, I've developed joint pain.  It's super frustrating.  Because of this I've realized how important it is to listen to my body, even more now that I'm postpartum and in my mid-30's. 

Practicing yin yoga and focusing on my hips and hamstrings has helped my mobility a lot!  As a result, I've also been able to release some pent up emotion and become a bit more flexible.  Even if you're not overly flexible, yin yoga is a great practice for every body!  

Give this yin yoga for hips and hamstrings practice a try.  It will start to open your hips and hamstrings, which are tight areas for most people.
