What is Yin yoga?
Yin yoga is a style of yoga practice 1000s of years in the making. It is slower and more meditative than other traditional yoga styles, bringing us into stillness and giving us a chance to turn inwards. It helps us to tune into the physical sensations of our body and our mind, as it targets the deep connective tissue such as fascia, ligaments, joints, and bones.
As we age and our production of collagen decreases, and our tissues, joints and ligaments shift from supple to rigid over time. In Yin practice we are exercising these tissues so that they remain supple, ensuring healthy mobility and vitality as we get older.
Many people think that exercise must be “YANG” or intense; quite the contrary - we MUST strive for balance in our care for our body. Yin Yoga practice carries this much-needed balance in order to return to vibrant and easeful health.
At the mental and emotional level, Yin is highly effective in supporting meditation, as it allows us space and time to practice and reap the healthful benefits meditation brings.
Combining this deep awareness with the conscious movement, Yin practice aims to harmonise the vital energies of the body to improve our sense of wellbeing and overall wellness.
