It also focuses on stretching and stimulating different points from Traditional Chinese Medicine.
Since it is a very passive approach to Yoga where you spend the majority of the poses seated on the floor or laying down it brings you in a state of deep relaxation. The poses are held for longer periods of time, sometimes 3 - 5 minutes.
Yin is practiced cold with no warm up and with more of a and lubrication.
The practice of Yin Yoga is based on ancient Chinese philosophies and Taoist principles which believe there are pathways of Qi (energy) that run through our bodies. By stretching and deepening into poses, we are opening up any blockages and releasing that energy to flow freely. In this process Yin Yoga boosts your circulation and reduces your stress levels at the same time.
Yin Yoga is the
perfect balance to those who have a very fast-paced active life as well to those who do
intense exercises or workouts. It is also for anyone who is dealing with
injuries or a chronic condition like or
osteoporosis as this style in particular is a more restorative practice.
Yin is a Yoga practice suitable for all ages, from beginners to advanced Yoga practitioners, since it is a Yoga form that uses many props such as blocks, a bolster or a blanket to find ease in the position and the stretch.
I offer Yin Yoga in a small and safe group every Monday evening from 18.00-ca.19.30
At the beautiful Centre Arend-Fixmer in the magnificant Mullerthal.
