Yin Yoga for the Hips (45 min)
Releasing tension in the hips with yin yoga
Join Shavaun for a 45-minute Yin Yoga sequence to help you release tension and find relief for tight hips. You will be guided through several Yin poses, including butterfly, caterpillar, square, and dragon pose that you will hold for several minutes each, allowing you to fully soften and release into each pose. Students without Yin experience are encouraged to practice with the Intro to Yin Yoga video before taking this class. Note: This is a quieter, meditative practice.
This is an All Levels class.
- Yoga block, 4" x 6" x 9" (or something of around the house of equal size like a shoe box - that's not empty so it won't crush)
- 2 Blanket, 80" x 60", for extra padding (or you can use thick bath towels)
- 2 Bolsters or firm yet supportive (couch) cushions
Shavaun Evans teaches Hatha, Yin, and Vinyasa yoga. She began practicing yoga in 2012 with a small group class in her Washington, DC neighborhood. After sharing practice together, students shared conversation and a vegetarian meal together, helping Shavaun see the possibilities for creating community around the mat. She eventually moved back to her hometown of Louisville, KY and enrolled in Eternal Health Yoga’s 200-hour teacher training program. She soon began teaching yoga to her family, friends, and neighbors, reminding her of the powerful healing and community-building possibilities of yoga and meditation. Shavaun teaches weekly at Eternal Health Yoga in Louisville, KY, and offers community classes for grassroots organizations. Her Yin Yoga sequences on YGB are influenced by Bernie Clark's The Complete Guide to Yin Yoga.
