"Yoga is the practice of quieting the mind"
WHAT IS YIN YOGA?
Most forms of yoga focus on building strength and increasing flexibility, whereas Yin centres on stretching deeper connective tissues such as ligaments, tendons and deep fascia. The muscles need to be relaxed in a Yin practice to allow the body to move closer to the bone and the connective tissue.
Yin is a passive, cooling and calm yoga practice. You learn to find your edge and be still. Some poses are held for 3 - 5 minutes at a time, to work into the deeper layers of the body. It serves as the perfect antidote to often busy and stress-filled life.
Benefits you can expect from Yin Yoga:
* Stress relief
* Deeper sleep
* Emotional healing
* Increased mobility
* Stillness of the mind
* Improved joint health
* Better organ function
