What is Yin Yoga?
"In the quietude lies the power and out of the quietude arises the power." (Confucius)
Yin Yoga – the quiet practice – draws our focus inwards, to connect to the true essence of ourselves.
As the pace in which we live, work and play becomes increasingly faster, finding stillness and a sense of equilibrium becomes harder and harder.
Yin Yoga is a meditative practice consisting of long held stretches without muscle tension, focusing on the deeper tissues of our body - strengthening, stretching and stimulating to encourage more flexibility and freedom of movement while simultaneously releasing deep tension of the body and relaxing the nervous system. Yin Yoga reduces stress while stimulating regeneration.
We learn to accumulate the subtle energy flow (chi flow) and to feel the enhanced energy flow in meridians. The stillness of the long held yin poses enables us to manipulate the flow of energy creating a deep level of calmness, focus and equanimity.
In the fast-paced, stressful world of the 21st century, yin yoga offers the perfect balance for teachers and students alike.
