Yin Yoga For Your Lower Body

I hope you enjoy this Yin yoga routine to release the psoas muscles, hamstrings and quadriceps.

Since Yin yoga is such an introspective practise I have included this poem I wrote a few months back called “The Eleventh Tank”.

The Eleventh Tank

Let the universe take a snapshot of my thoughts
Carefully placing it in a puzzle of eternity
Creating a ripple effect of belonging
All lonely hearts strung together
Collecting synergy of parallel existence

Let it boil over and turn into a gentile hiss
That only the awakened can hear
Becoming the best-kept secret untouched
Hovering over the masses in perfect circles

Let my stillness move through the unseen
My closed eyes see through blackness
Cables attached deep in my neck
Use me – my strength, my vulnerability
As I float here in the eleventh tank

      1. My best friend swears by Yin Yoga for calming the nervous system so I am really interested in following your videos. What I am trying to do with my lower body is increase the size of my glutes as I lost a lot of weight earlier this year and ended up with saggy skin under my bum as I am too old to lose weight! Would the lower body yin yoga workout help with building up the glutes and dealing with the saggy skin? I have kind of turned my sitting room into a gym with a yoga mat and equipment so may well try your video later! Thanks for following my blog Caroline

      2. Thank so much for your coment Caroline! Yes yoga not just yin yoga can help to increase your glute size, I’m working on that myself 🙂 yin yoga is great for stretching the glutes while Hatha and vinyasa is great for strengthening the glutes. Hip openers are especially wonderful for increasing hip and glute size. As far as saging skin goes I would do any kind of exercise which strengthens the lower body, once again trying to enlarge muscle. Happy new year and Congratulations on making such positive changes in your life! I will keep reading your blog.

        Namaste

  2. I used to do Hatha Yoga for years with a known teacher in Sweden. I have kept some of it up but not the whole practice. Main thing for me became the suppleness, the relaxation and the meditative side.
    It was also fascinating to study the real source for the practices that later swept the West where of course we need them. Together with many other Eastern practices.
    You go and do your good work
