Yin Yoga – Drafts

These are the sheets from Jordan Moniz which were distributed during his Yin Yoga Workshop on the 300hr TTC @ RYP 2014 (please ignore my comments on them 😛 ) :


with Kim Luongs comments:


on a personal journey, before this workshop, the yin classes I shared had some of this poses introduced:

  • Shavasana – warm up
  • Shavasana – butterfly
  • Happy baby
  • Shukasana
  • Deer
  • Bananasana
  • Fish
  • Dragonfly / Straddle
  • Frog
  • Sphinx
  • Anahatasana / Childpose
  • Pigeon
  • Camel
  • Dragons
  • Squat
  • Dangling
  • Cowface
  • Plow / Snail
  • Goddes pose / Shavasana

this chould be  a 75min class or more, some of the poses contain a right and left expression of the body..


recently I am combining all the experiences including even some more specific learned from a shiatsu “wake up the body” part before its workshop and my last Yin Class started like this:

  • Fire Breathing – this would be a kapal bhati from standing, with knees bend a little, tail bone tilted for a straight back – this performed without any interruptions for 2 mins
  • Shaking Roots – short and fast muscle contractions on all the body, especially on the legs, shaking the body rapidly and freely up and down
  • Dandling
  • Dragon(s)
  • Prone Focus:
    • Arm + Sholder
    • Leg 90′ aside the body – crocodile
    • swan
  • Supine Focus:
    • ball
    • happy baby
    • foot togheter – like bound angle on the back
    • (…)
  • Side
    • bananasana
    • (…)

I usually have a specific & different set of music for the yin yoga classes, originally i started with some from the below playlist – but please  share if you have suggestions, I am happy to experience:


 

another beautiful experience — thoughts worthless —

  • fire breath
