SO WHAT IS A YIN YOGA CLASS? WHY DO YIN?

Introspective and meditative, in yin yoga you will hold each pose for around 3 minutes as you breathe deeply and rhythmically. Gentle surrender into poses allows the body to open and a wave of healing to wash over your body, mind, and spirit. Surrender into the postures and allow healing and opening to happen in your deep tissues and fascia.

YIN YOGA BENEFITS INCLUDE:

  • Balancing the rush, stress, and push of modern life, which is very YANG, including Vinyasa yoga classes.

  • In YIN YOGA you will hold yin yoga postures for 2-7 minutes to target deeper connective tissues and your fascia. The long, deep holds puts positive pressure that allows the body to open up, become more pliable, and flexible.

 

  • Increase in circulation and oxygen through deep breathing.

 

  • Becoming still, practicing patience, and going inward during yin yoga postures allows emotional healing to take place and greater serenity in daily life.

 

  • Healing through working on the fascia and connective tissues to stimulate self-healing physically as well as emotionally.

 

  • Turns off the fight, flight, or freeze status and turns ON the parasympathetic nervous system to care, repair, and heal your body.

 

  • Opens up a window in space and time to turn your attention inward, to become still, meditative, and completely relax. Start benefiting from all that yin offers.
