Because Yin Yoga requires that the muscles be relaxed around the connective tissue you want to stretch,
not all yoga poses can be done effectively—or safely—as yin poses.

Every Wednesday & Friday (0900am-1030am)
a special 1.5hr YIN & Yang Yoga Class
at Yoga Plus Studio
(1) Deer Pose
stretching your Kidney, Liver and Spleen meridians
(2) Pigeon Pose (B)
Stretches the thighs, groins and psoas, abdomen, chest and shoulders, and neck
Stimulates the abdominal organs
Opens the shoulders and chest
(3) Sleeping Swan
The Sleeping Swan tugs on the outer hips, which tugs on your Gallbladder meridian! It also places additional pressure on the inner leg and groin to nourish the Liver meridian.
By stimulating your Gallbladder and Liver meridians, through the self-acupressure of this pose, you are better able to notice your inner energy regarding feelings of anger. It is important to have a healthy gall bladder and liver energy to support your muscles and tendons, so noticing any emotions arising in this pose is important to your overall health and well-being. The opening of energy movement or "chi" through your gallbladder and liver meridians will also help with your ability to feel compassion to yourself and others.
