Mula Banda in, or between, Yin Poses?

Namaste everyone! I've got a great question from a student of mine, and I thought it would do to have some others weigh in. S asks: How much - if at all - do you suggest mula bandha is active during long yin poses, or in moving between poses? She asks this not just as a woman who has given birth vag...

Paul's Anatomy for Yoga dvd has a great section about the shoulder joint and might be of use in sorting out an approach to the student with tightness. I often use short holds of some of Andre Lappa's shoulder openers - for myself this is great but I don't introduce these to students I don't have goo...

yinyang sequencing

I'm with Bernie - the time of day the class is taught can make a big difference. I used to teach regular morning Yin/Yang classes and what most of my students found useful was half an hour of Yin followed by 45 minutes Yang and a closing 15 minutes of savasana and meditation. Often they would take a...

Timers

For my self-guided practice, or those with friends, I use my cell phone. It has a nice, long, pleasant alarm tone and a five minute snooze. As I nearly always have it on me I am more likely to practice while I travel and since it goes off every morning I use at least one snooze for a 5 minute mini m...

Yin vs Yang Common Ideas

It might be of use to consider that in the larger Western world Yin denotes Feminine while Yang refers to Masculine - and if this is the aspect of which Delta is asking about, I think the answer is yes. Stretching or straining or simply being near the floor for long periods tends to nurture our femi...

When is it Yin?

I have been in vigorous vinyasa classes that included incredibly long, deep tissue targeted asanas at the end. Some of these struck me as Yin while others just seemed like long inactive postures. The difference for me was the attitude and attention the instructors taught with. The overall environmen...

An After Hike Sequence

Went on a 11km hike with 1500+ meter elevation gain while travelling through New Zealand. Up was actually alright, but down my knees were less than thrilled. I took the rest of the hike day 'off' and created this flow the next morning to work into the areas that felt the effort still. Because I need...
