Hey friends, it’s Thursday and that means I have a new yoga class for you! This week I’ve decided to do an advanced Yin Yoga practice using a yoga wheel 🙂 My little cat Cleo also pays us a visit in this class, she was fascinated by the wheel!

This 40 minute Yin Yoga practice using a yoga wheel will help you get into some very deep backbends, working our way into Kapotasana pose. This practice is NOT suitable for beginners and definitely not suitable for anyone with a slipped or herniated disc!!!
The poses we’ll be doing include:
– Supported Fish
– Modified Supported Bridge
– Supported Bridge
– Kapotasana/Full Camel Pose
This is a great class to do if you’re trying to improve your backbends and increase overall flexibility. We will open up the shoulders, chest, hamstrings and hip flexors while also deepening the range of motion in the spine.
What do you think of the yoga wheel? Is it a prop you enjoy using? I’ve had mine for a while now and tend to only use it for deep backbends like the ones done in this class.
What is Yin Yoga? Yin yoga is often called the Yoga of the joints because unlike other styles of yoga, the emphasis is not on the muscles but on the deep connective tissue. Connective tissue is made up of fascia, ligaments and tendons which surround and form your joints. Yin yoga improves the range of motion in your joints and also strengthens them. The results and benefits are more flexibility and greater range of motion and also more stability within your joints. Although your muscles will also be stretched, that is not the focus of the practice. It is best to practice yin yoga while your muscles are cold and NOT warmed up, even if that sounds counter intuitive. The reason we do this is so that we can send the “stress” and the “Stretch” to the connective tissues. If the muscles are warm they will steal the focus away from the joints.
