Top Five Yin Yoga Poses to do at Home

Your ‘Yin Yoga’ class with Lindsay Jay is great for all fitness levels and specifically targets the connective tissues of the hips, pelvis, and lower spine, creating an energy flow and opening internal Yin channels. You will discover the benefits of these poses below while Lindsday demonstrates the ‘Top Five Yin Yoga Poses to do at Home.’

1. Child’s Pose

Benefits: Child’s pose is both comforting and rejuvenating. It allows you to reconnect with your breath and stabilize your body. Periods of rest (like during child’s pose) are vital and will only enhance your relationship with Yoga.
2. Pigeon Pose

Benefits: Pigeon pose elongates the back, opens the hips, groin, hamstrings, and relieves pressure on the lower back and sciatica. Open hips improve your posture, alignment and overall flexibility.
3. Reclining Hero/Saddle Pose

Benefits: This is a little more advanced so only proceed to do this pose if you feel comfortable. It stretches the front of the body; the abdomen, thighs, quads and hip flexors. It also stretches out your spine, knees ankles and feet. It’s good for releiving menstrual pain!
4. Sphynx

Benefits: This pose really helps to stretch your spine, chest, lungs, shoulders and abdomen. It will also help to firm your buttocks, calm your mind and relieve stress.
5. Frog
