WHAT IS YIN YOGA?
Yin Yoga is a yogic practice that is designed to help you sit longer, and more comfortably, in meditation.
When you are implementing a Yin Yoga practice you are gently stretching connective tissue. This is generally around the joints (mainly the knees, pelvis, sacrum, and spine). This practice is great for those who suffer from scar tissue.
This style of yoga is a passive practice. That means that it involves passive stretching and relaxation. A Yin Yoga practice involves variations of seated and supine poses typically held for 3 to 5 minutes.
This can help you dramatically increase your passive flexibility as it allows you to stretch deeper layers of fascia.
WHY SHOULD YOU PRACTICE YIN YOGA?
By implementing a yin practice it allows us to work with our parasympathetic nervous system.
Activating the parasympathetic nervous system is beneficial for stress reduction, tension, blood pressure, sleep, digestion, and your immune function.
In a hard and fast society, we generally spend our days locked in sympathetic nervous system overdrive, constantly being pulled from one overly important deadline to another.
When you move deeper into the yin practice, the breath slows down significantly drawing you deeper and deeper into relaxation, mode. This is great for nourishing the body and mind. Especially since so many of us suffer from burn out these days. When we activate the parasympathetic nervous system through yin yoga, the internal organs get a chance to catch up on digestion, elimination of toxins, healing, and repairing.
