Many of us know that yoga alone is not enough of a cardio vascular workout to keep our hearts healthy for the long term. As a result we cross train weaving together different forms of exercise to ensure overall health. But the combination of weight-based strength training and cardio workouts can add tension to the posterior chain of the body. To help unwind this tension, enjoy 20 minutes of yin yoga with a sequence based in the most recent research on how to increase range of motion and designed especially for post-cardio workouts. Unlike other yin yoga practices this class moves through a circuit of yin postures three times holding each pose for 30 seconds to increase flexibility and range of motion in the hamstrings, glutes and low back. If your intention is to increase range of motion in the posterior chain of the body, try repeating this practice 3 to 5 times a week. Have two blocks and a strap for this practice.

As someone who struggles with Yin yoga, I loved this practice! It was just enough to feel the stretch without having your mind start to wander. Will definitely be adding this to the weekly rotation.

Loved this! The repetition with shorter holds really made a difference. And it was much more relaxing for me than longer holds. Thanks, Lauren❤️. I really appreciate the thought you put into your classes.

Just started listening to the Huberman Lab podcast several weeks ago, and specifically, the episode about stretching. I love yoga, and I love other forms of fitness, including running. Sometimes a full yoga practice is too much, but I need to improve my range of motion, particularly as I get older. What a delightful surprise to see a yoga practice specifically for runners, and then to hear you say it was inspired by research on range of motion discussed on the Huberman Lab ... mind blown! This was PERFECT! I hope you consider making more practices like this one!

I think the sequence is good. However, it was a little rushed for me and I think for some poses there was not 30 seconds. Much talk was put into it, kind of distracting me from enjoying the moment and focusing on my body.
