Challenge Overview

Start your mornings with Yin Yoga to Wake You Up, a feel-good program that's designed to inspire you for the day ahead.

Sign up for this five-day experience, and each day you'll get a new 20-minute class delivered via email. Every class is themed around specific energetic and physical benefits such as easing into the day with quiet forward folds, enlivening your body and mind through backbends, and more. Throughout this experience, you'll target all of the major muscle groups and joints—relieving sluggishness and tension throughout your whole body. You'll also get daily doses of yin-spiration through illuminating poetry and book excerpts.
