Many of us live very active (Yang) lifestyles and leave little or no time to foster the quit, introspective side. Over time this can be physically, mentally and emotionally draining. Through Yin practice we can restore equilibrium and feel whole as Yin Yoga is a practice of self-care through stillness, patience and non-reactivity.
Studies have found Yin Yoga to have a significant impact on lowering stress and anxiety, blood pressure, reducing the risk of depression, improving sleep, digestion, circulation, immune and hormonal function.
Belly breathing and staying in the poses from 3 to 20 minutes activates parasympathetic nervous system which calms your body and mind, slows your heart rate, and tunes you into a rest and digest mode.
Yin yoga classes are slower and more meditative, giving you space to turn inward and tune into both your mind and physical sensations in your body. Yin yoga helps you to strengthen deep connective tissues, improve flexibility, restore range of motion and at the same time teaches you self-compassion as you breathe through discomfort and sit with your thoughts and emotions observing, soothing and calming yourself.
Yin teaches us to surrender, let go of need to control every situation. It’s a lesson that we can carry with us into our day to day lives becoming more resillient to stress, manage change with grace, becoming more gentle and patient with ourselves.
