My favorite style of Hatha yoga is Yin, the most Hatha of them all. A slow, meditative, simple practice that delves deeply into the muscle fascia, joints and ligaments. After reading this great post in Elephant Journal - 9 Things I've Learned about Yin Yoga - I wanted to share one of my most adored sequences. This is a great set of poses that help you feel rooted in such a frenzied season, especially if you're a cyclist, runner, walker, sitter, or every-day mover. Please spend 75 minutes or more on this sequence. You won't regret the time with yourself.
1. Meditation & Intention Setting (5-7 minutes)
4. Sleeping Swan, Right leg behind (5 minutes)
5. From your 3-legged dog, slither forward to a Sphinx pose. (2 minutes)
6. Child's Pose (1 minutes)
7. Repeat steps 3 - 6 on the left side.
8. After your second child's pose, make your way to Down Dog.
9. Transition into Dragon Pose. (3-5 minutes)
10. Shavasana (10 minutes)
