Yoga at Home – Yin Yoga for hips
This yin yoga sequence is designed to loosen up the hips and is great is you spend a lot of your day seated. Before you begin, spend a few minutes focussing on your breath to allow your mind to settle, before you begin your yoga session. A Meditation timer app, is useful to help remind you when it’s time to move onto the next posture. Remember – if one pose feels particularly challenging, try to slow your breath for 3 sleep inhales and exhales before you decide to move to child’s pose.
Did you know that you don’t even need a yoga mat to do yoga? Here’s a short sequence, designed specifically for those with lower mobility or who sit at a desk throughout the day. The key to these stretches, as with all yoga, is to focus on the breath. Don’t rush the stretches, allow your breath to help stretch your mind and body, before you return to your next task. Let me know how you get on!
Sun Salutations are a staple of most flow yoga classes, and they’re a great way to start or end your day. Flow through the postures, taking extra breaths whenever you need to.
