Yin Yoga is an accessible practice and is of signicant value to pracitioners with any amount of experience.
Yin Yoga is a practice for exploring your interiority and nourishing your “yin side.” Most likely, you are familiar with your “yang side” which is the part of us that is motivated, generative, action-oriented, progress driven and externally validated. Your “yin side” is content, receptive, fertile, quiet, still and often hidden. Consider your “yin side” the soil from which everything grows and your “yang side” everything that emerges from the soil.
Yin inquiry asks us to descend into the soil of our body, psyche and invisible realms to embrace everything that we find below the surface.
What we find is likely to be a wide range of sensations, thoughts and emotions. All is welcome and met in a Yin Yoga practice: comfort, discomfort, neutrality, essence and complexity.
Yin Yoga poses target specific structures in the body through both traction and compression to improve joint health and deconstruct patterns of restriction. In most poses, the muscles are relaxed so that the healthy stress is applied to the myofascial tendon complexes, ligaments, bones and fascia. Once the muscles are relaxed, gravity exerts the perfect amount of gentle force on the body. Most poses are held for several minutes providing an opportunity for increased mindfulness and compassion.
