hi everyone therefore welcomed my path myname is Kassandra and today we’ll is being done a yin yoga class focusing on thekidney elevations so elevations is not something I have more brought into my yinyoga categorizes on YouTube but you are able to expect a full Meridian series on mychannel and the kidney Meridian is just the first one that we are going to startwith I thought it would be a great is suitable for the vacation occasion so the kidneysdefinitely patronage us in our detoxification process they filter ourblood filter the urine obviously important to organ state and to ouroverall state and well-being so if you are unfamiliar with the concept of meridians

asically they are thought of in the Eastern Chinese medicinetradition as being these pathways that help to flow and move energythroughout the body so similar as the hatha yoga tradition views the chakrasystems as a style to move energy throughout the body in the EasternChinese traditional medication we have meridians and then what we call energyinstead of being prana like in the hatha yoga legend we call it qi so it’smoving the vitality through these meridians and instantly into our jointsand our connective tissues which is what the purpose of yin yoga is and then weare able to support the healthful perform of our organs and how these healthy function of our part torsoes so the kidney Meridian itself starts from lowerdown into the feet and roams along the inner legs all the way to the tailboneand then up through the sticker into those kidneys so we’ll be doing some hipopeners and genuinely inner groin thigh stretchings as well as a few back bends I won’t be using any props for this practice but you might want to have acouple blocks for some of our deeper trendy openers if you need it really started in acomfortable set pose whatever that might be to you either up on a block ornot and you can bring your palms down to face onto the knees and we’re justgoing to create the digit and the index finger together to touch and then letthe palms face down towards you or face down towards the transcends of the knees dropthe shoulders away from the ears chin parallel to the floor and tell the eyesclose use these

first few moments of your practise to get anchored andsettled and a practice focusing on the kidneybrilliance does have a very sanding mood so ifyou’re feeling frazzled stressed out or a little tumultuous this is a greatpractice to exactly “ve brought you” back into the present moment bring you back into yourbody and back into your breath countenance the flow of your breather to becomesmooth and steady getting your inhale to be just as longas the expel feel the sit bones grounded down intothe earth beneath you like the deep seeds of a tree down into the soil and imagine your backbone like the trunk ofa great big tree reaching and lifting up and for these last few breathers let’sreach our appendages up and wide fingers spreading just like the limbs of atree expanding and breathe into the chest and into the upper back feel the ribcage expand front to back and surface to side find that connection from the earthto the sky tailbone to the crown of the heading digits to toes and evaporate liberation the handwritings back downlet’s see our method into our butterfly pose taking a forward crease soles of thefeet will come together knees apart you want to sit up nice and towering here if youfeel like you’re rounding back you can always prop yourself up onto a block andchoose the cavity that works for you between the heels and the groin they canbe a little closer a little further apart and you can hold the pose here oryou can walk your hands forward and start to crawl forward letting yourspine round your cervix tighten and your thought hang ponderou so wherever there is agap between your body and the flooring that can always be a great place to articulate ablock maybe underneath the forehead or if the internal thighs are screaming alittle bit in this pose and it feels time a little bit too much you can justput a block under each knee to give yourself a little bit more support andif you’re somewhat close to the floor

like I am here try to turn your palms to faceup towards the sky so there’s no temptation to push or pull and dragyourself into the pose just let gravity do the work for you as you open upthrough the internal groin as you prop this pose imagine you canbreathe immediately into your kidneys right below the ribs on either side ofthe backbone make deep gulps into the back form returning some force back into the armswe’re going to make our way out of this constitute but do it really slowly and keepbreathing even as you lift up so merely press into the palms go up inch by inchfeeling your way out and once you’re promoted back up you canbring your hands to the outer lines of your legs and it might feel good to dropthe knees back to side or to really extend the leg straight out in front of youjust little slow steady attentive pushes to help you liberate and unwindfrom that constitute and we’ll come into a winged dragon so this is similar tolizard pose so you’re coming up onto your hands and knees step your rightfoot to the outer edge of your right hand so both palms end up being to theinner edge of that leg and of that hoof you might want to pad your left knee alittle bit here if it feels like it’s going to be unpleasant we are herefor a few minutes so you can always double up your mat or introduce a blanketthere and then lift the right toes up and start to roll on the outer advantage sothe outer

blade of your freedom paw so the sole of the foot is not really onthe flooring anymore you’re externally rotating that title hip and continuing theknee and the ankle in that same line you can work the pose from here staying uponto your palms or you can come up onto some blocks or you can go deeper into itby lowering down onto your forearms and my favorite thing to do here is to loweronto the forearms and then I time threw a block underneath the forehead so my neckdoesn’t really have to work let gravity do the work for you here tryto find your perimeter and you’ll know you’ve gone past your margin if you have a hardtime relaxing and giving going to be home the constitute we’re not looking forward to a crazy amount ofsensation only a moderate amount of stress stress is a good thingin yin yoga it only conveys it is the stress we are applying to the seams andto the connective materials the stress of the pose in order to improve our rangeof gesture let’s raise our way out of the pose herestep by step if you are down on your forearms start by lifting back up onto thehands and turn the right toes to face forward once more and draw your way backinto your tabletop constitute

uncurling the rug if that’s what you are doing and itmight feel good to time press the hips back take a few hip haloes time get theblood flowing again and we’ll go and do the same thing on the second side sothis time you’ll have to step your left paw forward to the outer edge of yourleft hand maybe pad your title knee you’re goingto hoist your left toes up and start to rotate your left thigh down so you’rerolling to the outer edge of your left footkeeping that hoof flexed and only press the trendies forward and down you might havemore or less flexibility on this line-up so don’t worry about having the exact sameexperience modify whether it is necessary to either on your hands on a block or down to theforearms so as you decide and find some solace here in this pose bring yourbreath back down into the kidneys into the internal groin wherever you feel thisthe most relaxing the mouth the shoulders make your last-place five depth wheezes here and then ease your way out same what youdid on that first side back up onto the hands pointing the left toes forward andthen moving back tabletop pose you can move your block out of the path if youhad been using one got a few sighs precisely to let the hips end will changethe focus away from the hips for the next two poses and move into the spine alittle bit more so time lower onto your belly come into your sphinx pose soforearms flat to the ground elbows and sides about shoulder width distanceapart maybe a little bit wider even pressing down through every singlefinger pad pull your shoulders back and lift the chest up so you ascertain howdeep you go in this back bend bring your elbows closer in towards you to go alittle further into it or step them out in front to reduce the vigour of thispose my all-time favorite poses the toes are reaching back there’s a amiable innerspiral of the upper thighs so the hamstrings in the back of the thighs arefacing up towards the ceiling generating seat through the sacrumwidening the sit bones tailbone reaching towards the ends maybe letting the eyes close and this isa really great pose to breathe into the kidneys it’s up to you you can either harbour thesame pose for another minute and a half or two minutes or so or you cantransition in to shut so a deeper backbendby pressing the palms into the ground and hoisting up elbows off the rug wewant to be careful not to hyperextend or lock the joints tiny little bend here some tighten is OK through thesacrum that’s actually what we’re looking for but there should never everbe any kind of anguish at all so if it’s too much either fetching the elbows back tothe floor or you are

eligible to time stroll your palms a little bit further out in frontof you is my finding that sweet blot where you can holdthe pose find your periphery and resolve to be still then your final option for our lastminute or so if you wanted to go even deeper into this compression you canbend both knees as if you were trying to bring your toes towards the crown ofyour premier but not obsessing at all they’re not supposed to touch but justbend the knees and consider what that changes what that does for your low-toned back itmight be too much and if that’s the case keep the shins on the anchor these arejust options and straighten the legs if you had yourknees inclination bend the elbows before we move to another constitute only turn one ear tothe foot residue your limbs beside you palms face up wreaking the toes in towardsone another Heels leaning away from each other you can shake a little bit justrelease the low-pitched back handout the pelvis move your palms back alongside theshoulders the ribcage and time filch your way back up we’ll move into Caterpillar

so a forward fold before we do this forward fold just bring your feet flaton the flooring and your hands back behind you we’re just going to do a windshieldwiper gesture with the knees so letting the legs lowering from one surface to the nextso really great to do after a back bend a deep back flex extremely becausewe’re folding forward right after so we want to give our sticker the chance tosettle and exhaust and from here reach your legs out in front of you feel freeto keep a generous bending in your knees especially if you’re working with anyinjuries or you can sit up on a block so this is a yin yoga passive fold whichmeans it’s perfectly fine to let your spine round and you can have your blocksor any kind of props close in towards you just let yourself fold in and I like toturn the palms to face up here too so we’re not prod or drawing justsoftening into the shape relax your cervix and your top the props are optional here some peopleprefer to just let their premier hang and that works too notice that the upper person is stilltrying to work soften the chest lighten the legs let yourself naturally undid in thepose now is actually really was aware of your lowerback and of your spine as we make our way out of this pose so simply engagingthe arms again palms to the mat go your time to lift back up inch by inch

till you’re sitting all the way back upand we’re going to lower down to our backs taking a lying spinal slant before wecome into shavasana our final rest pose so let yourself come down to thefloor keep your knees flexed paws flat on the mat and reaching your appendages out to theside you’re going to press your feet down lift the trendies and move your hipsjust a duo inches over to the right before letting both knees drop down tothe left so right shoulder remains secured where it is you can hold hereor you can go a little deeper by traverse the privilege thigh over the left I’m really exactly doing this pose to helprelease any hitches we might have gotten in our low-toned back from the back crouch andthe forward deform and I pretty much always finish my yinyoga first-class with this pose let’s uncross the legs to lift them backup one at a time and we’ll move into our construction on the other side so your hipsshould go all the way to the left and then the knees will drop down to theright either merely stacking one leg over the other or crossing your left thighover your claim try to keep your left shoulder blade pressing down to thefloor so the collarbones face up and you justtwist from the mid and low-toned back making late slow and steady bellybreaths and let’s lift the knees back up draw your course into shavasana your finalresting pose taking up space with the weapons and the legs palms facing up take amoment to really notice how you feel now as opposed to when you first stepped ontoyour matted feel the insidiou alters in your physical body and the energetic
