A practice of stillness, patience, and an opportunity to give back to your body, mind, and spirit.
Yin can assist the bodies range of motion by inviting gravity during poses (asanas) shapes, to gently lengthen the fascia and mildly stress the joints. Poses are held anywhere from 3 to 5 minutes allowing body tissue to lengthen, becoming hydrated and more pliable as you sink into stillness.
(Santosha) contentment flows as you allow yourself to be in the present moment, to observe your self physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. Practicing Yin is a benefit to our well-being as it teaches us to be patient, loving, and non-reactive with our emotions and sensitivities.
Our lives are busy, active, and demanding. The constant Yang lifestyle can drain our energy. During a Yin practice the breath slows, deepens, and the body and mind relax, embracing our true and higher self.
