Yin Yoga is good for the body and soul

New Ross Standard - - PICTURES -

THERE are so many ben­e­fits to prac­tic­ing Yin Yoga and it’s avail­able to ev­ery­one. It doesn’t mat­ter what level of fit­ness or mo­bil­ity you are at, all pos­tures can be adapted to suit your in­di­vid­ual abil­ity.

Yin Yoga is a re­lax­ing pas­sive form of yoga. It con­sists of prac­tic­ing a series of floor based pos­tures which ac­cess the deeper layer of fas­cia, joints and con­nec­tive tis­sues.

With the use of bol­sters, blan­kets and pil­lows we en­sure the body is as com­fort­able as pos­si­ble as you gen­tly sink into the pose. We then stay there for 1-5 minutes al­low­ing the body to nat­u­rally start to open up cre­at­ing space in the joints and tis­sues. This space al­lows pre­vi­ously trapped tox­ins and im­pu­ri­ties to be re­leased and to be re­placed by the bod­ies own heal­ing nu­tri­ents.

We also work with the Chi­nese Merid­i­ans (used in acupunc­ture) in Yin Yoga, to stim­u­late the var­i­ous or­gans in the body en­cour­ag­ing the flow of vi­tal heal­ing en­ergy to im­prove or­gan health and func­tion­al­ity.
