Yin Yoga allows us to ground and to slow down, balancing our busy lifestyle. You will be holding certain sitting postures for a little longer than usual and this will benefit your joints and your inner body. A delightful and calming yoga practice, suitable for all.
The name “Yin Yoga” refers to a passive practice, where the muscles are not really involved (unlike other traditional forms of yoga). We act on the bones and joints with sitting postures that target the connective tissues of the hips, thighs and lower spinal area. Allowing gentle pressure on bones and joints maintains the health and the longevity of those areas, whilst creating a deep sense of “coming back” to yourself. Yin postures also act on the energy meridian of the body, refreshing and toning up the digestive, excretory, circulatory and respiratory systems. This practice encourages the releasing and letting go and will stimulate a physical, energetic, mental and emotional flexibility.
It’s the ideal practice to ground ourselves, physically mentally and emotionally. Meditation will follow more effortlessly and it will be enhanced by the effect of our physical practice.
