Sunday Stretch Yoga Posts

Most 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.
