Yin Yoga Travel Workout!
Today’s “Yin Yoga Travel Workout” is all about relaxing & letting go. We’ll do a slow, deep 20-minute yin yoga session, allowing our muscles to completely relax. Yin yoga is a style of yoga that holds the postures for 1-2 minutes ~ much longer than in a traditional yoga class. So it’s not about getting the heart rate up ~ it’s about slowing down & letting go of the tension that can get locked into our muscles.
This is a perfect routine to do when you’re too tired to go to the gym ~ on a Netflix-kind-of-day. Personally, I’ve been sick all week, & saying goodbye to family & friends in the States. I woke up sore, tired, & a little drained this morning. This workout is perfect for those kind of days.

Today’s Workout only has one part: 1) Boho Beautiful’s “Yin Yoga Class.” At the end of the routine, I’m including a bonus “Letting Go Meditation,” also by Boho Beautiful, for those who wish to meditate.
Total Workout Time = 22 minutes (32 minutes with meditation)
“Do not move on to 2018 without letting go of something significant. An old idea, label, habit, fear, concern of ego. Let go to free up the white space for something new to enter.”
Boho Beautiful ~ Yin Yoga
Slow it down here with this yin yoga session. Any time you feel discomfort or tightness in the muscle, stop there, breathe, & do your best to relax. You should never feel pain ~ so back off if you do, & move to a position where you can breathe comfortably. Most of all ~ enjoy this practice : )
**Letting Go Meditation by Boho Beautiful**
After the yin routine, when your body is calm & relaxed ~ makes a perfect time to meditate. As yoga is about releasing the tension in your body, this meditation is about releasing the tension in your mind. In both cases, you are letting go of that which no longer serves you. If you’ve never meditated before, this is a great place to start.
Your short “Yin Yoga Travel Workout” is complete! How do you feel? I just completed the workout & meditation, prior to writing this post: I feel calm & filled with peaceful energy. Did you try the Guided Meditation? How did that go for you? Tell me about it in the comments below : )
