Yin Yoga

If you are feeling it, you are doing it.

Yin yoga is for you if you are tired and craving energy or you’re over-stimulated and have too much energy.

Yin yoga works on the yin tissues - also known as the connective tissues. Connective tissue responds best to a slow, steady load, which is why we hold the poses for longer. If you gently stretch connective tissue by holding a yin pose for a long time in this way, the body will respond by making it a little longer and stronger

Becoming still in a pose and staying for a while creates space for the mind to wonder and arouses anything that wants to come up. This could be anxiety, happiness sadness, boredom...any emotion or feeling you suppress with all busyness in your life.You will be encouraged to allow all those feelings to be there, but not to identify with them. To observe but not get caught up in them.

 

Yin yoga is not intended to be practiced exclusively, but rather as a companion to a more vigorous yang practice.

A restful savasana awaits at the end of every practice!
