Yin yoga is a wonderful slow paced practice that specifically targets deep connective tissues, like your fascia, ligaments, joints, and bones. It’s slower and more meditative, giving you space to turn inward and tune into both your mind and the physical sensations of your body. Because you’re holding poses for a longer period of time than you would in other traditional types of yoga, yin yoga helps you stretch and lengthen those rarely-used tissues while also teaching you how to breathe through discomfort.
The practice of yin yoga is based on ancient Chinese principles stating that there are pathways of energy running through our bodies and by stretching and deepening into poses, we’re opening up any blockages and releasing that energy to flow freely.
A yin yoga sequence has a very similar effect on our energies as an acupuncture treatment and by holding the various poses, a yin yoga sequence can help restore the healthy flow of energy in our bodies.
With Yin the goal isn’t to move through postures freely. Postures are usually held anywhere from three to seven minutes allowing access to the deeper tissues and areas that encompass a joint such as the hips, sacrum, shoulders and spine.
ASMY’s most popular Yin practitioner, Dori, will take you through a deep, releasing two hour Yin sequence that will calm your mind and energised, rejuvenated and relax your body.
