About Mindfulness Yin Yoga
Yin Mindfulness Yoga is a type of Yoga practice which complements the Yang Yoga practice. Yang Yoga poses basically are more dynamic and mostly active or fast in nature. In Yin Yoga, all floor posture are held passively for several minutes or even longer as it will prepare the body to slowly adapt to a safer and positive “stress” at all connective tissue in the body.
On the physical side point of view, Yin Yoga restores and maintains the natural mobility of the joints, primarily the areas between the navel and knees. On the other hand, Yin Yoga opens the body’s Meridian system where it could enhance the body’s energetic flow, in which it could directly maintain our own body’s emotional equilibrium.
As Yin Yoga poses emphasizes calm, stillness, silent and deep stretching in nature, it prepares both the body and mind into a deeper experience and longer duration during meditation practices.
