Yoga is known for helping decrease stress, and yin yoga is no exception. Five weeks of yin yoga and psychoeducation reduced stress and anxiety while increasing participants’ ability to be less judgmental and reactive to everyday situations, researchers reported in the journal Anxiety, Stress and Coping. It may also support your physical health.

Yin Yoga brings more oxygen to our blood, it keeps the heart healthy. Yin Yoga Benefits: Increases Concentration. If your brain is calm, you will be able to concentrate on things better.

This will increase your reputation as well. Yin Yoga and meditation reduce your reactionary time. You get to focus on things better and for a long time.

Yin yoga is the perfect balance to those intense exercises, providing a slower, more meditative counterpart to help you round out your workouts. Yin yoga is also for anyone who is dealing with injuries or a chronic condition like arthritis or osteoporosis as this style in particular is a more restorative practice than other forms of exercise. Yin can also be a great starting point for anyone.

Yin Yoga workouts help you reduce stress and muscle tension within your body. Yin is the more passive side of yoga, where you look to release energy in those problem areas of your body. The yin yoga workout involves exploring any areas within your body that may have injuries, or are all knotted up. The key is to find the tension within your body, and actively focus on releasing that energy.

These tissues, including tendons, cartilage, and the full-body subcutaneous casing known as fascia, are most concentrated in and around the joints, where they can stiffen and shorten with age or inactivity. Mobilizing the tissueslubricates them and makes them more supple. Yin yoga is one way to achieve this. Yoga nidra, as well as other more relaxing types of yoga, like yin yoga and restorative yoga, are gaining popularity, says Fleming.

They give people. I suspect few of us are perfect human beings with smooth flowing chi through all our meridian channels. Another thing to consider is that yin yoga is a practice in mindfulness or a gateway to meditation. The long holds are a style of meditation in and of themselves that allow you to be present with what is arising.

Different Yin yoga poses stimulate and remove blockages in the myofascial meridians in the body, which in turn balances the body’s internal organs and systems. Yin yoga requires the muscles to relax around the connective tissue in order to get a stretch, so not every yoga pose can be done safely or effectively when practising Yin style yoga. Practicing yoga changes your mind: It changes the way you approach life, your body, and eating.

Yoga shows you how to appreciate your body for all of the amazing things that it can do for you and points you in the direction of wanting to fill your body with the best possible fuel rather than processed junk food.

Done with focus and presence, yoga is the perfect blend of mind, body, and soul or breath.

  • I have been loving the Transform program and think these stretches are great, but am still super sore even when I stretch after toning. Any way you could share a foam rolling video in the future?

  • You’re going wayyy too fast for me and the stacked stretch was wayy too complicated for me. I’m glad this works for others though, just wasn’t right for me.

  • I know I am 5 years late but I would love a bit more stretch for the back, arms and maybe hold a bit longer in some of the poses xx

  • I love your background musci in the videos! where did oyu get your musci from or especially this song? whats the name of it? THank you. I love your videos hope you never stop. Whenever you do a workshop. I am totally in:)

  • My favourite yoga channel ��. Missing the short morning yoga class in the Sandbanks. It was perfect to start a busy day. Where can I find it? Thanks

  • I’ve been doing this workout and seeing great results. Thank you! My question is: the challenge is 14 days. What workout should I do next in order to keep the results?

  • I love your yin yoga! It was hard for me, it pulled all of the upper body nerves for me and it was difficult to surrender. I discovered I didn’t follow instructions very well! I guess that it pointed out that what I really need to work is the tension on that area. Thank you thank you thank you.

  • I’ve been looking for a video like this for a long time! Thank you!!!! My body felt so relaxed after this �� I’ll be sure to use this every post-workout!

  • Your emanating positive Energy helped start my day out right so I am noticing more of birds I hear chirping Sun shining an fresh air even in the city! Thanks ��

  • be careful if you are not flexible. this hurt my toe really bad and i don’t know what to do. wouldn’t recommend for people starting out yoga or stretching.

  • Thank you for sharing your video! We wanted to let you and your subscribers know that we at FRQNCY release weekly meditations, binaural beats and frequencies to relieve stress and soothe our minds, bodies, and souls.  Please subscribe to our channel and we wish everyone good health during this time. Namaste

  • Have been doing your workouts for a week now & was struggling on the Vermont snowy one haha. Decided to take a break with my muscles today. This was a much needed stretch/easier flow yoga thank you!!!!

  • I follow your yoga practice from the Netherlands and find that you give me some extra’s in the things that jou say during the class.

  • Omg..thank you for this. My boyfriend took me to the gym, did weights and legs but he didnt stretch me at the end of the workout…i couldnt walk properly for a whole week������‍♀️

  • I have been following your channel for a couple weeks now and I am so happy. I love your yin videos in the afternoons and evenings to wind myself down. So thankful for your time and intention.

  • Lovely video content! Apologies for chiming in, I would love your thoughts. Have you heard the talk about Chireetler Stubborn Fat Rule (just google it)? It is a good one of a kind product for discovering what to eat to balance hormones and eliminating trouble fat spots without the normal expense. Ive heard some interesting things about it and my friend finally got cool results with it.

  • You learned me so much the last 2 month’s. You opened my eyes already so much since I work on the pelvic floor muscle. In my case you have definitely gave me the ‘ManFusion’ I needed and I am willing to do a LOT more now. You are so awesome! You even made me excited to go on yoga very soon!! I always went to the gym before, but sadly since I am sick I can’t do it anymore. Yoga seems to be the perfect thing for me now I need more awareness and need to be able to relax more.

    I am so extremely thankful for the journey you have brought me these months. I pee so different now and I really really feel some certain clarity after doing my exercises, my back pain is way less from IBS, and beside this all I also really got in to herbs and mixtures with really do help tremendously well for my IBS! I had no day without pain and now with all the herbs I studied and tried out I find major relieve! My stool gets better, no constant diarea anymore, pain is better controllable ( for people with IBS, use MINT thea without caffeine and biologic as possible. Put fresh mint in there for best results, with fennel. No sweeteners just drink it like that or with a little 100% honey if you need to, mint relieves pain and some mixtures promote the digestion)

    I find it absolutely astonishing my docters have never mentioned any of this!! Really wow! There is some great results to be gained with an more aware lifestyle (I am not anywhere near there yet but made a good start) meaning herbs, exercises, breathing techniques and healthy foods. I am not anywhere near good or anything on my sickness part but there is relief! I am 25 and have been sick since 1.5 year. Pancreatitis hit me after I losed weight and got gallstones from losing weight. They where the culprit of my pancreatits and I never got better anymore after that. Being sick all the time sucks really much. Can’t work, can’t pee, cant do anything. What keeps me going is Dr Bri and her amazing skills and advises on how to life better. It works wonders against my depression as well that came along with being sick and not able to do anything anymore. After my last hospital visit 2 months ago I told myself, we are going to give all of this a try! Docters couldn’t do much for me. There is no cure for IBS and there is not any for pancreatitis. Luckily I got hit only once (knock on wood) with pancreatitis but has caused my body to be overall sick since that day. I wish docters would have learned me some things about herbs and how it can help with IBS and that it relaxes the muscles with also makes it easier for me to urinate from my extreme tensed pelfic floor with has caused me great problems too in my life for years on end now.

    I initially only went to dr. Bri her channel for pelvic floor tension but found so much more! Awareness with made me look into other things as well, like I said above, herbs, more and better understanding of overall stress and it’s devastating effects on body and soul and better food.

    People believe me, this amazing woman is a God send for some of us. I am living proof of this. I am a male so man who have similar problems, get to work with all of this and see what it can mean to you! We also got a pelfic floor we need to take care of with great care, it is a very complex muscle and deserves precious care. Also your mind and body are worth the effort to take care of, YOU are worth the effort to take care of!

    Best to you Dr Bri and everyone else!

    Dennis

    P.S. I am from the Netherlands, does someone have by ANY chance some info for a good pelfiv floor physiotherapist? I got some names but if some people have first hand experiences, that only would be better:).
