Well Being – Focus – Alignment – Weight Management – Endurance
Yin Yoga Sequence is “Low and Slow”, inviting an earthy, grounded energy, and physically, targeting the lower body, including the feet and ankles.
Yin Yoga is a still and passive practice that focuses on exercising the denser connective tissues of the body. By coming into poses that keep the muscles relatively inactive, gravity and time are skillfully used to place stress on the plastic-like tissue within the joint capsules, the dense connective tissue and bones. Working the body in this way greatly benefits the health of the joints by reducing fixation, maintaining functional mobility, preventing degeneration and increasing hydration.
In addition to the physical benefits, Yin Yoga opens the body’s meridian system to influence the movement and quality of Qi (chi), enhancing our overall health and state of being, and is an opportunity to settle into our experience and observe whatever may arise in the body and mind.
three main principles of yin postures are-
• Slowly and mindfully entering the pose using the breath to stimulate the flow of chi(energy) and remain highly focused on the sensations promoted by the pose.
• Help nourish the joints by remaining still and allow gravity to have us.
• The lengthy posture steadiness allows one to develop yin qualities of surrender, similar to a long acupuncture session. This allows the full nourishment of the meridians.
The practice of Yin Yoga allows one to understand the physical, energetic, emotional and mental qualities of the poses on the six yin/yang pairs or organs.
