Yin Yoga is known as the unglamorous type of yoga, but it has so many healing benefits.

Here was my sequence this morning:

Seated meditation
Inhale arms up and back to heart center (3 x) emphasis on drawing the belly in and not having the ribs pop forward

Easy chin across collarbone slow side to side (imagine drawing a necklace with your chin) x 3

Ear to shoulder (opposite hand on side of head) do both sides
Seated circles (heart to right knee/around and back to center) then other way

Spinal balance x2
