Have you noticed that the names of Yin Yoga poses are different than what you’ve heard in other yoga classes? Or have you wondered why Yin poses aren’t named in Sanskrit? Hatha Yoga often involves engaging muscles in a yang (active) way. Yin poses have unique names to signal to practitioners that the postures are meant to be inhabited in a yin (relaxed) way. There’s a good reason for this, and it has to do with the physical focus of each type of practice.

Yang postures emphasize contracting, strengthening, and stretching the body’s muscles, as well as the fascia around and within those muscles. Engaging the muscles when you’re moving dynamically—as in vinyasa yoga, for example—protects the joints. When muscles are engaged, the joints don’t get stressed significantly. This is a good thing in an active practice because repetitive stress to the joints can weaken or injure joint tissue.

In contrast, Yin postures emphasize gently stressing the dense connective tissues (ligaments, discs, cartilage, joint capsules) in and around the joints in order to strengthen those tissues. You accomplish this by pulling (tensile stress), squeezing (compressive stress), or twisting them. Because the muscles are relaxed in Yin poses, they aren’t the layer of body that is strengthened. In sum, our focus—or functional intention—can translate either to a yang or yin version of a pose, and this has a lot to do with how you are trying to feel things in your body.

To understand the differences between a yang and a yin approach to the same pose, let’s consider the common cues and benefits of Bhujangasana (Cobra Pose) and Yin Yoga’s Seal Pose.

Bhujangasana (Cobra Pose) 

Josh Summers Cobra Pose

Common cues associated with Bhujangasana: Lift the chest and draw it forward. Drop your shoulders from your ears, and pull them back by isometrically drawing your hands toward your hips. Engage the erector spinae muscles. Lengthen out of your lower back. Don’t sink into your lumbar or compress your lower back! 

Benefits derived from a yang functional intention: Strengthens the back muscles through spinal extension. Strengthens the shoulders and triceps through sustaining the pose.

Seal Pose

Yin Yoga's Seal Pose with Josh Summers

Common cues associated with Seal Pose: Walk your hands somewhere in front of your torso. Fully extend your arms so that you can let your arm muscles relax, and allow your arm bones to support you. Your shoulders may shrug, and that’s fine. Relax your abdomen and the erector spinae muscles. Allow your lumbar to gently compress so you feel mild-to-moderate sensation, and monitor the intensity of that sensation—if it becomes too intense, sharp, or aggressive, lower to your forearms and come to Sphinx Pose.

No matter which range of motion you assume, your manner of inhabiting the pose—muscles relaxed—is vital so that the joint tissue can soak in the all-important dose of mild stress that will keep it strong and supple for years to come.

Benefits derived from a yin functional intention: Strengthens the lumbar spine’s discs, bones, and connective tissues through compressive stress. Possibly strengthens the connective tissue of the shoulders. Gently stretches the abdomen with tensile stress.

So, Is It Safe to Compress the Spine?

The final cue (“allow your lumbar to gently compress”) may raise safety concerns. In all intelligent yang forms of yoga, you are discouraged from compressing the back because—in those contexts—compression may be too aggressive and damaging. But just because you don’t want to compress the lumbar in a yang context doesn’t mean you shouldn’t ever compress it. All tissues need appropriate levels of stress so that they don’t weaken or atrophy.

Please remember that yang and yin kinds of exercise are equally important: Your muscles need yang stresses to stay strong and healthy, and your joints’ dense connective tissues need yin stresses to stay strong and healthy. A yogi who intelligently combines both is well on his or her way to cultivating a strong body on all levels.

Can’t Sleep? Try This Smiling Practice for Insomnia


Can’t Sleep? Try This Smiling Practice for Insomnia

For nights when stress + anxiety get the better of you, try this simple smiling practice to peacefully drift off to sleep.

Do you struggle with sleep from time to time, whether it’s falling asleep, staying asleep, or getting enough sleep? You’re not alone in your tossing and turning. More than a third of American adults are not getting enough sleep (at least seven hours per night) on a regular basis, according to a 2016 Centers for Disease Control and Prevention study.

For quality, consistent sleep every night, it’s critical to develop a healthy bedtime routine, as well as lifestyle factors such as proper nutrition and physical activity, all of which affect your sleep patterns. That said, there are some nights where anxietyjust gets the better of you despite all of your best efforts.

So, the next time you find yourself in “mind overdrive" (incessant worrying, ruminating, and thinking about things like work and to-do lists) when you should be snoozing, try the following technique. I like to call this practice The Smiling, Sleepy Buddha. It’s one of my favorite methods to peacefully fall asleep or fall back to sleep when anxious thoughts wake me up in the middle of the night. It incorporates mindfulness, a breath technique, body temperature regulation, and a tiny smile.

The Smiling, Sleepy Buddha: A Mind-Body Practice to Help You Fall Asleep

Step 1: Ease into Savasana.

Roll over onto your back (so you can effectively take long, deep, full breaths) into Savasana (Corpse Pose).

Step 2: Smile and relax.

Add an-ever-so slight and comfortable smile to your face. Use just enough pressure to gently engage the muscles around the lips without straining or overly forcing. (If someone were to look at you, they might not even notice you’re smiling.)

The mind can influence the body (hence the mind-body connection), but the reverse communication linkage—body to mind—is also true. The body can inform the brain and, in this case, it’s a small brain hack meant to signal to the brain and nervous system that everything is OK, that you’re safe and you’re content. Your nervous system darn well knows you wouldn’t be smiling if you were in actual danger. The smile helps both the brain and the body to relax (and you’ll resemble a peaceful, happy, meditating Buddha!).

Step 3: Practice diaphragmatic breathing.

Picture a Buddha figure with a nice round belly. This breathing technique calls for “soft belly,” or diaphragmatic breathing, where the belly rounds, fills, and puffs up on the inhale (imagine that Buddha belly!), and contracts and empties on the exhale (remember “e” for exhale and empties).

Many of us simply aren’t breathing correctly. Adrenaline in the system often leads stressed, overworked adults to take shallow, chest breaths (rather than full belly breaths), which isn’t as effective at oxygenating the blood. Additionally, something I’ve learned in my various health, mindfulness, and yoga trainings is that shallow, sharp breaths from the upper chest area (and not from the belly/diaphragm) may lead to neck stiffness and pain over time.

When the body’s stress response has been triggered, engaging the parasympathetic nervous system (PNS)—the “rest and digest” system that allows the body to reset and recuperate—signals to the brain that you’re OK and safe. One way to actively engage the PNS is through effective use of the breath.

Lying on your back, inhale (filling the belly) to a count of 3, and then exhale (emptying the belly) to a count of 3. You can experiment with 4-count and 5-count breaths as well (and don’t forget to add that tiny smile!).

Continue breathing in this manner. Use the breath as the mind’s anchor. When you notice your mind wandering, recognize that it has drifted, detach from the distraction or thought (imagine it floating or passing by like a cloud in the sky), and return to the breath count. Every time your mind drifts, return to the breath again and again.

Step 4: Regulate your body temperature.

Anxiety and stress may have an effect on your body temperature, according to the CDC. Normal body temperature is approximately 98.6°F, but bouts of stress and anxiety, or a panic attack may cause the temperature to fluctuate somewhat in either direction (an increase or decrease in body temp, depending on the person).

To help regulate body temperature, place a slightly damp washcloth—using cool or slightly warm water depending on how you want to adjust your body temp—over your forehead. Keep a bowl or tray on your nightstand, and when you feel yourself drifting off to sleep, simply place the washcloth in the bowl.

Continue practicing this technique until you peacefully drift off to sleep.

Live Be Yoga: We Tried Yoga with Horses, and It Powerfully Expanded Our Awareness


Live Be Yoga: We Tried Yoga with Horses, and It Powerfully Expanded Our Awareness

A “mind-blowing" day of equine subtle energy work leads to a larger lesson about how we all impact the world.
Live Be Yoga's Aris Seaberg practices asana on a horse at Solaris Stables.

Live Be Yoga ambassadors Jeremy Falk and Aris Seaberg are on a road trip across the country to share real talk with master teachers, explore innovative classes, and so much more—all to illuminate what’s in store for the future of yoga. Follow the tour and get the latest stories @livebeyoga on Instagram and Facebook.

As we made our way toward Solaris Stable & Yoga Studio in Hume, VA, the terrain began to blossom with life. We were about to experience a form of yoga that neither of us had tried before: yoga with horses. Honestly, we were both curious about how it would work and if it aligned with humane practices, as Jeremy and myself both hold high standards for the practice of ahimsa (non-harming).

We were warmly greeted by Angela Nuñez, owner and creator, and Johnathan Bailey, who helps her run the beautiful space and wellness programs. They gave us a tour of the horse stables, a yoga studio overlooking the rolling Virginia hills, and an outdoor arena for horse training and yoga programs.


Angela designed an approach to yoga she calls Equine Facilitated Learning (EFL), which focuses on understanding and managing energy to benefit your experience with the horses and, most importantly, your life. She began by educating us on horses’ acute awareness to sounds, vibrations, and energy—all without being stressed—and how it is something we can learn from them. She then walked us through a centering meditation by bringing awareness to our ears, just as the horses do, to listen to all the sounds around us.

Afterward she guided us through a practice to attune to our own energy by rubbing our hands together and holding them out, palms facing each other, in front of our chests. We closed our eyes and slowly moved our hands closer until we physically sensed our own energy. I was also able to try this with Angela. She stood about 3 feet in front of me with her palm facing me, and I mirrored her with my hand. We closed our eyes and moved forward until we both sensed each other, which we did at about the same time, approximately a foot apart. It was a tangible example how others can feel our own energy. “That’s how we change the world—first by changing ourselves,” Angela said.

She demonstrated how we can use the energy work to interact with the horses. Standing in the center of the pen, about eight feet away from her horse Snowy, she directed her attention and energy toward his backend (it’s believed horses do the same in herds). Lovingly, yet confidently she sent him a request, with no words and very little movement, to walk around the edges of the pen… and within a few seconds he was doing it! As yogis, we talk about energy—how it can move, become stagnant, or impact others. But to watch the horse respond so clearly to her, without any verbal communication, was mind-blowing.

Very excited by this point, we both were able to try nonverbally communicating with the horses. As we were new to the practice and to the horses, it took Jeremy and me a moment longer to have the horses respond, but nevertheless they did! What an experience! It was empowering and enlightening. She instructed us to take this understanding with us as we moved into the asana portion of the class.


As we mounted the horses, we kept our energy calm yet confident. She was clear that confidence is of utmost importance when interacting with horses since they crave leadership and trust. From there Angela guided us through a different type of asana practice, as, of course, we were on horseback! We started slow, linking our breath and arm movements and always aware of our and the horses’ energy. Since the horses seemed to be enjoying it, we moved into more challenging poses, including Pigeon, Reverse Tabletop, Camel, full-standing Tadasana, and even Side Crow!

As much as this was a unique and fun experience for us, Angela informed us horseback yoga has benefits for the horses as well. Just like us, they hold tension in their muscles or get sore. The way she directed us to move into the poses gave them a massage, and ensured that we did not hurt their spines or other sensitive areas. She also explained ways to tell if the horses were relaxed or stressed so we respected their bodies and energy.



We ended our practice with Savasana on the horses. I have never had a Savasana experience quite like that. I was so at ease, I felt my breath and the horse’s moving in unison; I felt weightless, like I was peacefully floating down a river. It was so easy to drop into stillness. I wanted to be there forever.

Although this is an untraditional approach to yoga, it is clear Angela’s teaching is rooted in yogic traditions and her heart is rooted in her students, the horses, and our world. “My main goal is to help people get back in touch with nature and to realize that we are all part of it. I think horses stir something primal within us, and yoga helps to quiet our minds so we are able to feel that deep place within that is connected to all that is,” she said. “When we forget we’re connected, it’s easier to cause harm to the earth. I hope to help people get back in touch with our connection to nature so that we may all work to preserve this earth.”


Thank you, Angela and Jonathan, for an enlightening and joyous experience!

Anatomy 101: Understand Your Pectoralis Minor


Anatomy 101: Understand Your Pectoralis Minor

This minor muscle is a major player in backbends. Expand it—and its web of connective tissue—for greater range of motion in your chest and back.
locust pose, salambasana

This minor muscle is a major player in backbends. Expand it—and its web of connective tissue—for greater range of motion in your chest and back.

Let’s face it—we are a society of sitters and slouchers. And there’s one little-known and small but very important muscle that helps create that slouch: the pectoralis minor, which is located on the front of the chest and connects your ribs to your shoulders. To find it, put your hand in the little depression under your collarbone in the front of your shoulder—now you’re touching pec minor under the larger pectoralis major.

This short yet powerful muscle is the main contracting muscle of a web of tissue (the clavipectoral fascia) that weaves through a large part of the front of the torso. It originates at the coracoid process of the shoulder blade, a bony protrusion that pokes its head anteriorly toward the uppermost corner of the chest. It then inserts on ribs 3–5, more or less under the nipple. When it’s flexible, pec minor can allow for that “open heart space” you’re always hearing about in yoga class, enabling you to reach your shoulders back to backbend successfully or sit in meditation without rounding forward. But a tight pec minor nearly guarantees that you will be stuck with a rounded upper back, hunched shoulders, and forward head placement—all too common, perhaps due to the many hours we spend with pec minor in a contracted position, while sitting at the computer or behind the wheel (though not all specialists agree on the cause). For yogis, a tight pec minor can make it impossible to backbend without pain. This is because of the muscle’s role in the larger area of clavipectoral fascia.

Fascia is the stuff that connects muscles, bones, ligaments, and tissues into a whole being; it’s a weblike biological fabric that takes up every nook and cranny in your body and holds your shape in various postures. You’ve likely heard the term “connective tissue,” which can represent anything from bones to blood vessels and includes the unique subcategory of fascia. As Tom Myers, fascia specialist and author of Anatomy Trains, explains in his book, “[Fascia] is very aptly named. Although its walls of fabric do act to direct fluids, and create discrete pockets and tubes, its uniting functions far outweigh its separating ones. It binds every cell in the body to its neighbors and even connects the inner network of each cell to the mechanical state of the entire body.” So, the network of fascia accounts for how all aspects of the body interrelate beyond the origin and insertion points where muscles start and stop.

It is helpful to think of the pectoralis minor not as a single muscle that begins and ends somewhere in our chest, but as a contractile mover of the much larger bag of clavipectoral fascia. If the pec minor is contracted, it will shorten the entire bag of clavipectoral fascia, which takes up nearly half the anterior torso! This shortening will in turn contribute to a collapsed chest and a slouching of the upper back and shoulders. Imagine walking up to a spider’s web and using your fingers to scrunch the webbing together—a tight pec minor is like your fingers in the web, causing the clavipectoral fascia to scrunch, which will in turn pull your shoulders forward and sink in the chest. Over time, the tight fascia may adhere to surrounding tissues. This severely limits movement and makes it exceptionally difficult to achieve enough openness and length for backbending asanas, because contraction across the chest inhibits extension and elevation in the mid- to upper back.

When you’re on your yoga mat, stretching this area when prepping for a backbend will help give you the needed room to first lift up through the sternum (breastbone) and then to curve backward. The common cue of “Widen your collarbones and lift your chest” for backbending poses is fantastic, but often impossible if the pec minor and clavipectoral fascia are tight. If you solely focus on bending backward, without expanding horizontally and vertically across the chest and shoulders, you aren’t giving your spine the length it needs to curve in a spacious way. This forces your backbend into your lower back, creating a risk for painful compression of the lumbar discs and facet joints between the vertebrae. But by first lengthening the pectoralis minor and its fascial bag in the front of your body with stretches like the one below, you will set yourself up for successful extension of the spine and expansive backbends.

How To Stretch the Pectoralis Minor + Clavipectoral Fascia

Modify this common stretch for the chest to target the pectoralis minor specifically. Standing with your right side close to a wall, extend your right arm up and out behind your body, with your palm on the wall at a 45-degree angle. Turn your breastbone away from the wall and toward the center of the room to feel a stretch deep in the chest. Hold for 7–10 breaths; release, and repeat on the other side.


  • Don’t let the head of the humerus bone round forward in the shoulder. This will undo a lot of the opening you are trying to achieve. Draw the scapula toward the spine and down the back.
  • Keep your head back and in line with your torso.
  • Combine your chest stretches with upper- and mid-back strengthening poses like Salabhasana (Locust Pose). Lie on your belly with your arms extended back alongside your outer hips. The palms can either face the floor or you can externally rotate the arms so that the inner wrists face out toward the walls. Lift the shoulders off the floor and hug them in to allow maximum width across the collarbones and chest. Draw your shoulder blades toward the spine and down the back.
