Yin Yoga: Hamstrings Education
Show Notes

We have a big problem with misinformation in the Yoga world. This problem seems most rampant around the hamstrings but is by no means exclusive to the hamstrings. The myth that stretching the hamstrings will “lengthen” the hamstrings and reduce the subjective experience of tightness has been going around for some time. For this 30 minute practice, we will practice a very traditional Yin practice focused on the hamstrings, EXCEPT, we won’t be stretching the bejesus out of your hamstrings. I’ll teach you a more sustainable approach that will ACTUALLY help you to increase range of motion and decrease sensitivity. Not only is it more effective, but it’s a whole lot more enjoyable.
