In this one hour Yin-Yang session you will use a gentle Ujjayi breath to keep the mind calm and focused. Beneficial for everyone but especially runners and those who have desk jobs. The in and out breath is guided throughout the warming-up to loosen up the neck, spine, hips, knees, ankles and toes. You are also reminded to stay attuned with your breath during the yin poses where you open up your quadricep, hamstring and adductor muscles. In a Savasana variation your chest will be opened, to benefit even more from the enhanced amount of oxygen in your system. This practice can be done in the morning and in the evening or before or after a run. Different options are given for each pose, so you can adapt them to your needs. Props you will need: pillow, blanket, blocks and a belt.
