The goal with yin is to maybe go about 70% deep into your “max” stretch. Once you get comfy, you can kind of drop the head (aka, the “yin slouch”) and relax. You can get into the fascia and connective tissue with yin. It also prepares you for a sitting practice.
Most of these poses are supported. Pick a few and hold them anywhere from 1-5min.
Squat – 1 min
Butterfly – 3 min
Pigeon R/L – 5 min
You just did a 15 minute self guided yin yoga class. And really got into your hips! Boom. Done.
