August’s Video: chill yin
We’re so excited to release our very first yin yoga video! If you’re new to yin yoga, it is slow-paced and consists of holding passive poses for a longer period of time to get deep into your muscles and tissues. Most of the poses are done from the floor and they mainly work the lower part of the body - the hips, pelvis, inner thighs, lower spine. These areas are especially rich in connective tissues! In a typical yin yoga class (and our 20-minute video) you’ll only do a handful of poses because you’re holding them for an extended period of time.
For this video, you will need a yoga strap. If you don’t have one, you can use a belt or belt from your robe… or anything else that can function like a yoga strap!
We also recommend playing some music in the background off of your iPhone. There’s lots os silence in a yin class and music can help you anchor to the present moment.

Vinyasa yoga tutorial
For beginners or anyone who needs a refresher on how to flow through a vinyasa.
During the 20-minute yoga videos, sometimes I will cue for a vinyasa and I won’t go every step every time. If you’re not too sure what a vinyasa is and what your form should love and feel like, sit down and watch the video tutorial below! You do not need to follow along to the video, it’s meant to be informational!
You do not need to download this video. It will always remain on this page throughout the year.
