What a great gentle way to greet the day! The first forward fold held for three minutes really stretched the fascia all along my back. even though at first I was resistant to holding it for that length of time. It's refreshing to do some more Yin yoga especially at the beginning or ending of the day. Namaste.
Hi Christel! That's exactly it... I love incorporating aspects of yin yoga into my practice, anytime of day, especially morning or evening. Those longer holds do awaken and stretch the fascia, which at first can feel like a wall of resistance, but with the time the body opens and changes. That's the magic. xoA
Beautiful practice! I've been doing a lot of half hour practices lately and just loved what a difference the extra 15 mins made - could really luxuriate in wonderful stretchy-ness and have time to find peace! Thank you!
