Yin Yoga is a passive stretch of connective tissue, fascia and muscle. A slow practice with a series of long-held asanas (poses) mainly work the lower part of the body—the hips, pelvis, inner thighs, lower spine (areas are especially rich in connective tissues). The poses are held for 3 to five minutes, sometimes longer drawing heat, oxygen, fluid and appropriate pressure to joints, tendons, ligaments and along chinese meridian lines and acupressure therapy points to help lubricate and protect.
Yin Yoga is not restorative- it can be intense, challenging and taxing to stretch the body for so long. Yin teaches great strength, tenacity and mindfulness, as you learn to stay calm and focussed watching the breath,and feeling a stretch move into areas of sometimes great vulnerability and insecurity in the mind and body.
Our practices are grounding, centuring and extremely meditative. Building awareness of tensions in the body and learning to physically release them by actively surrendering into a stretch and let gravity take you rather than muscular control is a highly rewarding, intuitive and effective skill to develop. When you become aware of tension on the mat, you become aware of tension off the mat. You’ll learn effective ways to recognise early signs of stress, desease and ill health in the mind and body.
Yin works as an amazing compliment to Rocket/Ashtanga/Vinyasa styles of Yoga or anyone training for high intensity impact sports, Yin will support the joints and help protect the body from repetitive strains or injury.
