Sunday Stretch Yoga PostsMost of the posts below will be about one, or perhaps two, Yin Yoga poses. These are poses that only take a few minutes' hold, with slow and steady breathing, to relieve aches and work out kinks. You might be inspired to check out of there is a Yin Yoga class in your area.
We used Bernie Clark's book Yin Yoga in the teacher training course I took. I refer to it a lot. His site is here.
I did a second weekend intensive with Sarah Powers and used her book in that workshop. I also often refer to her book. Her site is here.
These are all suggestions, and very simple poses; listen to your body and if you are unsure of anything, check with your family physician. There are many benefits to doing yoga. Obviously, there is a physical benefit, but consistent practice has mental, emotional and spiritual benefits as well.
