The past week or so I have become obsessed with Yin Yoga.
I’m trying to make a conscious effort to let go of all things that no longer serve me.
I’ll just copy and past what Juliana from BohoBeautiful.life wrote about Yin Yoga….
Yin Yoga is a style of yoga practice that targets the connective tissues, such as the ligaments, bones, and even the joints of the body that normally are not exercised very much in a more active style of Asana practice.
Suitable for almost all levels, Yin Yoga is a perfect complement to the dynamic and muscular (yang) styles of yoga that emphasize internal heat, and the lengthening and contracting of our muscles. Yin Yoga generally targets the connective tissues of the hips, pelvis, and lower spine.
Each posture in Yin Yoga is usually held up to 5 min or so. However, if you’re very new to this I recommend you start with the 1-2 min holds until you feel more confident in your posture. If you’re more of an advanced yogi then feel free to pause the video and hold each pose longer.
Yin Yoga has many amazing benefits but below are some of the key benefits you may begin to feel after a regular yin practice:
-Stillness: calms and balances the mind and body
-Stress and anxiety reduction
Enjoy and let go of all that no longer serves you,
Juliana & Mark
Great practice to release stress
