Create space. What will be, will be.
Yin Yoga is a quiet practice that encourages a practitioner to pay careful attention to the highs and lows of long holds in poses. The long holds creates a sense of awareness, a pathway towards equanimity, all while creating space in the mind and body.
Yin is the "tha" of Hatha, or moon energy. The practice of yin is about being willing rather than willful. Take a step back, breathe, sit with it. Allow what will take shape to take shape. No push, no strive. A practice rooted in shedding the ego to get into the deeper layers - both physically, emotionally, and mentally.
Yin is a practice and method in which we put stress on the fascia, ligaments, and tendons to become more pliable, which creates a safer space for the body to settle in, and for the mind to release. Poses are held for a duration of 3 - 5 minutes, but as the practice grows, the time becomes longer. You will leave a Yin practice feeling more open and from a space of willingness to observe the subtle energies.
