What is yin yoga and what can it do for you?
Yin Yoga is a meditative and healing form of yoga based on the principles of Chinese medicine and the meridian system, or nadis, as described in the Indian system.
Meridians are invisible pathways or energy channels interconnecting every tissue and organ in the body. They moisturise the joints with synovial fluid internally and externally. They work like acupuncture, without the needles!
Meridians enhance the flow of chi/qi (Chinese system) or prana (Indian system) otherwise known as life force or vital energy (in the Western world) through the connective tissues around the joints and ligaments, where energy can stagnate and the fascia (connective tissue) can break down causing immobility and pain.
Each organ has energetic components that affect us physically, emotionally and mentally. Strong emotional states are triggered by an organ imbalance or dysfunction.
Long term stress and negative emotions eventually break down the immune system leading to illness and disease.
Our bodies carry a record of all our experiences in our lifetime, and all experiences carry an emotional charge, so that over the years any trauma, bad relationships, betrayals, stressful jobs and grief can actually affect our physiology.
It is really important to stay with this practice to help release all the emotional baggage that we have been carrying around for so long.
Yin yoga helps to create a balance with all the yang practices of our busy lifestyles and often hectic environments.
Yin energy is peaceful and relaxing, helping to calm the central nervous system, allowing our bodies to heal and recharge.
