Go Within - Sunday Yin
“The quieter you become the more you can hear. ~ Ram Dass
Welcome to Sunday Yin :)
I continue the online classes throughout May as it seems that we are asked a little more patience until we can connect and practice in person again. As the world is still trying to figure out how to continue and there is little certainty or stability, the practice of Yin Yoga can offer you a wonderful anchor to cultivate these qualities within.
The classes throughout May offer a calming practice to alleviate tension and restlessness in the mind and body.
Yin yoga works deeply into our body with passive, longer-held poses. The practice targets the deepest tissues of the body, our connective tissues – ligaments, joints, bones, and the deep fascia networks of the body, rather than the muscles (which are the physical focus of Yang yoga practices).
On a more energetic level, Yin yoga improves the energy flow, enhancing the flow of chi in the organs, which according to Chinese medicine, runs through the meridian pathways of the body. It is suggested that these meridians are created by our connective tissue and that the improved flow of chi improves organ health, immunity, and also emotional wellbeing.
