Replenish & Renew
Yin Yoga supports people who have tight muscles, perhaps lower back pain, tight hips. And, it can really help:
To reduce stress through directed breath work
Improve focus by directing attention to key muscle groups
Develop concentration by holding the postures for a few moments
Experience physical and mental relaxation as the body relaxes
It takes time.
But as you continue you will develop a better sense of your body, confidence and movement.
RELEASE TENSION AND STRESS FROM WITHIN THE BODY

As the muscles then start to relax, the whole body relaxes, and so does the mind. And the then we experience stillness within the mind and body.
Create emotional connection
with the body
Improve body confidence
Choices to increase or decrease intensity of the experience
Optional use of props
“.... and take a moment to arrive and honour the practice and your world around you” - Lisa
Stretch to your edge as you stay in the pose for a while. There are always options to ease away - if the intensity becomes strong for example - so the body can soften and allow you to have a deeper experience of the posture. Maintaining stillness allows you to be present within the body and mind.
Take Your Time
Release physical tensions in the body as you stay in the postures for a couple of minutes. You'll be stretching the connective tissue through the use of props- for example blocks, bricks, and belts - and supporting yourself as you stretch- gently and patiently.
