More about Yin Yoga:

Who is Yin Yoga good for?

Postures are set up slowly and with a lot of attention and care to injuries and sensitive places. So Yin yoga is good for everybody! Whether you are a super fit athlete, a senior battling aches and pains or a stiff office worker – everyone can work together – in the same class. Yin yoga classes are often the busiest classes on schedules – you don’t have to choose between slow or fast, dynamic or easy – everyone will be challenged and get what they need in one place with one teacher. There are three paradigms that you can use to design a class – so pending on your audience you can pick and choose what ‘map’ you use.

Athletes
Yin yoga helps to undo the postural mis-alignments that come from repeating a specific movement over and over again — like kicking a ball or swinging a racket. Most athletes stop playing their sport because of problems with their joints. Yin Yoga helps to realign bones where they meet ensuring a smooth articulation of bones at joints. An athletes career can be extended significantly practicing in the Yin way.

Seniors
As we get older the spaces between our joints are diminished because of poor postural habits, repetitive movements, the force of gravity, negative emotional and mental states and the inevitable drying up of our tissues that comes with old age. As the spaces get smaller at joints we experience joint pain that often becomes arthritis. Yin Yoga creates space at joints – alleviating the discomfort that almost all elderly people experience.

Office Workers
Sitting is the new smoking! Exercising the mind and ignoring the body is an all too common practice in office workers and academics alike. When we hold a siting position for extended periods of time we become ‘frozen’ in the shape. Shoulders roll forward, spines round and our hips become tight. The results are ‘carpel tunnel syndrome, back pain, arthritis, osteoporosis and poor circulation. Not to mention all the mental stress that manifests physically that is all too common amongst the ‘office’ population. Yin Yoga helps to ‘undo’ the holding patterns that become ingrained while sitting at a work station. Old aches and pains can be released once and for all by countering the ‘sitting’ position with yin positions. New postural habits will emerge and pain will be a thing of the past!

Trauma Survivors
In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) the meridians that carry Qi through the body also house our emotions. This course will teach you the mental, emotional and physical qualities of the organ meridians, and teachers will learn how to manipulate and release emotional residue through Yin Yoga. There is a deep meditative quality to the practice because poses are held for a number of minutes. How the mind affects our physical body becomes apparent when we work in this way. Deep emotional releases are a common part of the practice for those that need them. We will also study the Indian Chakra system which mirrors the TCM model. These two systems are the ‘software’ or ‘maps’ that we will also study. We will also look at the ‘hardware” in the way of Western Anatomy, the nature of fascia and how the myofascial trains connect all the systems of your body and how they define your posture.

Stressed Out Students!
As mentioned above, we hold our emotional patterning in our fascia, so when we bring our attention to this tissue and create space and room for movement we ‘undo’ ourselves. We know no better way to ground a student, help them let go of negativity and shift their perspectives than the practice of Yin Yoga.
