“Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing, there is a field. I’ll meet you there” Rumi
In yin yoga, postures are held for longer periods of time to harmonize the energy flow in the body. It’s a practice focused on cultivating stillness and helps us to turn more inward while stimulating the connective tissues; fascia and joints, in the body. Especially in our daily world, a lot of our activities are yang in nature and have a ‘go for it’ attitude. Engaging in yin activities helps our body and mind to find the necessary balance between doing and observing – being. We need both aspects in our lives, yin and yang in order to feel healthy. According to Chinese Medicine, there are energy channels running through the body, meridians. In order to feel healthy and happy, the energy needs to flow smoothly. A yin yoga practice can help to stimulate this energy flow so that the physical body may feel at ease, inviting the mind and emotional body to follow.
