* Yin yoga can help you become more resilient to stress.
Surrender and acceptance are central themes in Yin yoga, teaching us that we don’t have to control every situation. With practice we learn to let go of creating stress in our lives.
* Yin yoga revitalises the tissues of the body.
Long held poses will help hydrate bodily tissues as you slowly open deeper into the pose, releasing tightness. You will come out feeling that you’ve had a deep tissue massage.
* Yin Yoga restores the body’s range of motion.
As we release, twist and compress tissues in a moderate way in long held poses, adhesion caused by ageing, injury or habitual bad posture can be released.
* Yin yoga practice forces you to slow down.
When you move into stillness of the poses, your to-do lists will fade and leaving space for rest and renewal.
*Yin Yoga gives an opportunity to sit with our emotions.
Emotions are stored in the body. During the practice of creating space and release, these, even the painful ones may come to the surface. Yin teaches us to be patient, gentle, nonreactive and feel safe.
*Yin yoga stillness primes us for meditation.
When we cultivate stillness in the body, perfect conditions are set for the mind to become quiet too. With yin yoga we don't even need to practice meditation, but sometimes meditation finds us. When the mind becomes quiet, we will see our true selves.
