Welcome to a 30-minute Yin Yang Yoga class for Neck & Shoulder Pain Relief! If you’re dealing with neck and shoulder pain, this class will help. My intention is to help you release tension, increase mobility, and find relief from discomfort.
In this class, we’ll start with a gentle Yin sequence to apply appropriate stress to the tissues that wrap around the joints of your body. We’ll move through Supported Fish Pose, Heart Melting Pose, and Broken Wing Pose, focusing on finding an appropriate edge, softening, and being still. Remember, not every pose will be possible for every body, and that’s okay! I’ll offer alternatives so you can find what works best for your body.
Then, we’ll transition to the Yang portion of the class, where we’ll focus on building flexibility and mobility through standing postures such as Tadasana and Warrior One, and movements like shoulder circles and spinal mobility. We’ll end with a relaxing Savasana to let the body integrate the benefits of the practice.
Remember, it’s not about what the pose looks like, but how it feels in your body. This is real yoga for real people.
