Interested in improving flexibility and the health of your joints?
Yin Yoga resonates deeply in the dense fibrous tissues, ligaments and joints of the body where it is believed that deeper energies get stuck. This practice aims to increase our natural range of motion with gentle steady stresses, while encouraging our bodies to unfold from their contracted stress induced states. The magic is hidden in time.
What is Yin Yoga?
Long held passive stretches targeting the connective tissue of the body
Postures are usually held for 3-5 minutes with emphasis on lower back, hips, pelvis and legs
Great compliment to more dynamic and muscular “Yang” styles of yoga
This quiet practice is ideal to prepare the body for long periods of seated meditation
Before Practicing Yin Yoga
Advise your instructor of any health issues or injuries, prior to the class (consult your health care provider if you are unsure if this is a safe practice for you)
Yin is practiced prior to engaging in physical activity (muscles need to be in natural state – do not warm up the muscles before practicing)
It is best to practice on an empty stomach, without perfume/cologne or metal objects, such as jewelry
Bring a mat, blanket, pillows and/or bolster to each class for support as needed
Work within your own limits and ask for assistance as needed
Always listen to your body and come out of a pose it is too much
