Are you looking for a truly transformative complement to your power yoga practice? Have you considered joining a Yin Yoga class? Yoga Body Shop is dedicated to bringing this deeply therapeutic practice to our community of yogis. We find the intimate nature of Yin Yoga allows for self-connection to feelings, sensations and emotions.
Unfamiliar with this option in the Yoga Body Shop class portfolio? Here are five reasons to consider adding Yin Yoga to your regular yoga schedule.
- Yin Yoga Creates Stillness in Body and Mind
We all know that life nowadays is hectic, fast-paced, and occasionally downright crazy. We desire a method to slow down and take time away from our never-ending to-do lists. Yin Yoga provides just that. It is a peaceful, quiet, and motionless physical practice that allows us to relax and unwind our bodies and mind in a state of meditation.
- Yin Yoga Teaches Self Care & Compassion
The Yin practice allows us to pay attention, nourish, soothe, and calm ourselves. The introspective techniques of Yin Yoga will enable us to take a moment to reflect on ourselves. It reminds us of our uniqueness and helps us connect with our respiratory system, organs, and inner selves, serving as a form of self-care and compassion.
- Yin Yoga Helps to Increase Flexibility
Yin Yoga focuses on and stretches the inner connective tissues that connect your muscles and fascia throughout your body. Holding various poses can help extend stiff muscles and fascia. This enhances flexibility and blood circulation by breaking down the obstruction between the joints. It also aids in the control of energy flow throughout the body.
- Yin Yoga Revitalizes the Tissues of the Body
A good long soak can revitalize your body’s tissues, so can a productive Yin Yoga class. The gentle release that pulls you deeper into the pose is the tissues stretching, hydrating, and becoming more elastic while you hold a Yin position. Typically, you would feel like you have had a massage after a Yin Yoga class.
- Yin Yoga Cultivates Balance & Primes Us for Meditation
Most of us have highly active lifestyles with little or no opportunity to cultivate our quiet, reflective side. This can be physically, intellectually, and emotionally exhausting over time. We can regain balance, feel whole, and see our true selves by practicing Yin Yoga.
Yin Yoga does not just help with physical revitalization, such as easing hurting or swollen muscles, but it can also help with spiritual and mental healing. The beauty of Yin is that it delivers the perfect blend of stillness and mind-body feedback to keep you focused and engaged in the present moment.
