Melina guides us in a Yin practice that incorporates the five elements. We settle into the shapes for about 4 minutes each and use the body to anchor a little more into the present moment. You will feel a new sense of quiet and spaciousness.
Aaaahhhh...very meditative and grounding...the super long holds really took my mind to another level of peace and acceptance. Even the sitting meditation posture at the end was so comforting...this was a spa-day experience in the space of an hour 🎋🌺🌿
I just completed Yin and the 5 elements, and Melina's use of props is truly inspired. So many familiar poses -- sphinx, child's pose, twist, and more -- that props enhance, support, ease, and smooth. I am also enamored of Earth and Air balancing, in which she had me place, around my rib cage, a strap, which gently facilitates, without efforting , the awareness of breath. Namaste.
Melina . This practice was the first practice I have done that gave me pain relief in my left leg which has chronic tightness. The ending pose as you said was more comfortable than ever. Thank you for sharing this yin practice.
