Yin Yoga Sequence ‘Calm Down’

Yoga Paper > Yoga Sequences > Yin Yoga Sequence ‘Calm Down’

There are days when you feel as though your life is spiraling out of control – and you need something to calm you down. This Yin Yoga sequence is a simple way to relieve stress.


Yesterday my thoughts were all over the place and I couldn’t focus on anything. I’ve had a very exhausting time in the last few days/weeks. I thought I’m fine but I was not.

I knew I had to do something about it, so I went on my yoga mat without a plan. I simply listened and practiced what my body told me. This sequence is nothing special, but it doesn’t have to be special. It simply needs to do one thing: Relieve stress.

And let me tell you: 2 minutes into deer pose I felt my brain letting go and my body completely surrendering. It can be that simple.
