the medicine of Yin Yoga

 
Yin Yoga is pure medicine for the crazy world and “timeless times” we live in. It is the art of doing nothing and at the same time feeling ourselves fully through deep stretching and relaxation. It is an intense and very meditative practice of asanas/ postures that are held for several minutes, resulting in a more relaxing and deep experience. In addition to group meditation.
Yin yoga is our offer for you, for the daily evening classes. 
 
Among its many benefits, we want to highlight the following:  
– Provides elasticity to the joints 
– Carries the vital energy or “chi” to the internal organs 
– Balances our emotions 
– Quiets the mind
 
The most obvious difference between Yin and Yang Yoga (i.e. the different forms of Hatha Yoga) is
that in Yin we do not activate the muscles by staying in the asanas.

 In this way, we can directly affect the body’s connective tissues: tendons, ligaments and fascia. These “yin” tissues are more rigid than the “yang” ones such as the muscles, which are more elastic and respond better to rhythmic and repetitive movements.
By applying pressure to tendons and ligaments, or stretching them for an extended period of time, we bring “juiciness”
to the joints, as the fluidity of their synovial fluid is regenerated. 

Yin Yoga is based on Taoist philosophy, where the cycle of life has five seasons linked with the five elements, with two predominant internal organs per season/element. The internal organs are connected by a network of meridians or electromagnetic channels that conduct energy throughout the body. Both the meridians and the internal organs can be energetically harmonized through Yin Yoga asanas. Holding the postures for several minutes affects the tissues called fascia, where the meridians are located, stimulating the flow of vital energy or chi in these channels (as in acupuncture)
and generating more health and vitality for the internal organs. 

…and as we know, a healthy body and balanced emotions invariably bring greater peace of mind.
