Yin Yoga at Jyoti Yoga Therapy, YogaPatricia is a slow-paced style of yoga in which postures, known as "asanas" are held for extended periods. We typically ask you to hold each posture for between five and eight minutes. This spiritual, meditative style of yoga in Tucson is beneficial for recovery after injury, pain management and enhancing the mind-body connection. While more active yang styles, such as vinyasa yoga, focus on body sculpt, strengthening and toning, yin is the opposite. Yin yoga targets the deep connective tissues, known as the fascia, within the body. This non-heated, meditation style helps regulate energy flow throughout the body.
During your Yin Yoga class at Jyoti Yoga Therapy, YogaPatricia, you will find that most yin poses are seated or reclined postures. You will follow a meditative approach rather than a physical approach. The goal during practice is not to body sculpt, but to release tension from the fascia. Meditation is an important component to this practice. You might initially struggle with sitting still and working through feelings and sensations that come up during each posture, with the help of Patricia you let go and learn to come to the center of your being. Cultivating a meditative mindset is important for finding spiritual stillness, harmony and balance.
Yin teaches you to truly sit still and listen to your body. In our high-stress, high-demand lives, it can be difficult to find moments of stillness and surrender. Yin Yoga is the perfect time to come into one's own body and mind, accept what is, and simply learn to be. This spiritual practice is important for working through not only physical limitations, but also past emotional traumas. Emotional pain that has been locked away within the body resurfaces. For this reason, yin postures that take place during a class are often included as part of yoga therapy for individuals who have suffered deep emotional traumas such as rape or the loss of a loved one.
Benefits of a yin practice at include: regulating energy levels in the body; calming and balancing the mind and body; increasing mobility, especially in the joints and hips; lower stress levels; and faster recovery from injury. Releasing tension from the fascia is important not only for movement, stamina and flexibility, but also achieving greater relaxation. Once you get into a regular practice, you are able to sit still longer for meditation and find the practice of meditating more rewarding and calming. We will be with you every step of the way to ensure that you are getting the most out of your yin yoga practice.
You will also find that practicing yin yoga once a week can significantly improve your yang yoga practice such as active yoga classes, walking, jogging, biking, etc. Like the yin/yang symbol, both practices are essential to a whole, healthy and spiritual individual.
