Welcome back! This second video in our Yoga series is a twenty minute Yin Yoga session. Yin Yoga is focused primarily on stretching and releasing tension from your body, which is what makes it a favorite with those new to yoga. Yin positions are held for a longer period of time, in this case two minutes, which allows your body a deeper release than is possible during the more typical Yoga flow sessions.
I like how this video also includes the basic yoga flow, which adds a nice movement element which can be missing from many classic Yin Yoga classes. The yoga flow is also the most common sequence of movements in Yoga and therefore good to know about as you build up your practice.
As an aside, if you would like more detailed information on all the different yoga postures, you might also find it helpful to consult a book called Namaslay: Rock Your Yoga Practice, Tap Into Your Greatness, & Defy Your Limits by Candace Moore. What I liked about the book is that she has diagrams for every single yoga posture with detailed visual descriptions of the right and wrong way to do each of them. Having the book as reference material was helpful when questions about individual postures arose in my mind, although of course having the book is not totally necessary since I think Juliana is clear about how to do these postures.
We suggest following along with this video each evening for a week before continuing to part 3 of this series. You will begin to really start feeling your body open up in new and pleasant ways!
