Heart Opening Yin Yoga Sequence

The heart chakra, located in the center of the chest, is associated with love, compassion, and kindness. When this chakra is open and balanced, we experience a sense of inner peace and connectedness with others.

A heart opening Yin yoga sequence can help to open and balance the heart chakra. This sequence includes poses that stretch and open the chest and heart area, and that help to calm and soothe the mind.

The sequence begins with a few gentle poses to warm up the body, followed by a sequence of four Yin yoga poses. These poses are held for 3-5 minutes each, giving you plenty of time to relax and open your heart. The sequence ends with a few final poses to stretch and cool down the body.

Here is a suggested sequence for a heart opening Yin yoga sequence:

1. Gentle Warm-Up Poses:

Cat-Cow pose: Come to all fours, with your hands directly below your shoulders and your knees directly below your hips. Inhale as you arch your spine and lift your head and tailbone up, and exhale as you round your spine and tuck your chin and tailbone down.

Downward-Facing Dog pose: From Cat-Cow, press into your hands and lift your hips up and back, coming into Downward-Facing Dog. Spread your fingers wide and press your heels toward the floor. Hold for a few breaths.

2. Sequence of Four Yin Yoga Poses:

Puppy pose: Come to all fours again, and this time, walk your hands forward until they are in line with your shoulders. Drop your forehead to the floor, and tuck your tailbone under. Hold for 3-5 minutes.

Sphinx pose: Come to lie on your stomach, with your elbows directly below your shoulders and your forearms parallel to each other. Press your palms into the floor, and lift your head, chest, and upper thighs off of the floor. Hold for 3-5 minutes.

Fish pose: Come to lie on your back, with your legs bent and your feet flat on the floor. Rest your head and shoulders on the floor, and then lift your hips and buttocks off the floor. Place your hands on the floor alongside your hips, with your fingers pointing toward your feet. Hold for 3-5 minutes.

Bridge pose: Come to lie on your back, with your feet flat on the floor and your knees bent. Lift your hips and buttocks off the floor, and place your hands on the floor alongside your hips, with your fingers pointing toward your feet. Hold for 3-5 minutes.

3. Final Poses:

Downward-Facing Dog pose: From Bridge pose, press into your hands and lift your hips up and back, coming into Downward-Facing Dog. Spread your fingers wide and press your heels toward the floor. Hold for a few breaths.

Child’s pose: Come to kneel on the floor, and then sit back on your heels. Bring your forehead to the floor, and extend your arms out in front of you. Hold for a few breaths.

Pigeon pose: From Child’s pose, extend your left leg out behind you, and rest your left ankle on your right thigh. Keep your right leg bent, and reach your arms forward to extend through your spine. Hold for 3-5 minutes, then switch sides.

4. Corpse pose:

Come to lie on your back, with your legs bent and your feet flat on the floor. Rest your head and shoulders on the floor, and then extend your arms out to your sides, with your palms facing up. Close your eyes and relax for 3-5 minutes.
