Understanding Yin Yoga, Opposite of Yang Yoga

Yin Yoga balances the muscle work of yang yoga. It is the work of connective tissue, ligaments, joints, and bones. It is immobile movement vs. active yoga.

Yin Yoga can be practiced by anyone at any ability level. The focus is alternative from Yang yoga, which is the yoga of the muscles and of internal and alfresco bodily heat. Ying is a softer yet just as forceful type of yoga. By operating the deeper tissues and joints, Yin Yoga professes to enable the yogi practitioner to reach alternative areas of the body and to move toward a deeper yogis understanding of the practice and the self.

Yin Yoga Practice Principles

Stillness and reduction are the foundation of this immobile type Yin Yoga. The opposite of immobile bodywork is active movement or Yang Yoga. Yang Yoga involves repetition of movement that builds and trains muscle. Yin movement affects alternative tissues types. Slow steady movement or stillness affects bilateral tissue failing necessarily addition repetitions. Yin Yoga is a way to exercise joints failing bad repetition or authority bearing.

Pigeon, a hip icebreaker becomes Sleeping Swan with the accentuation on the sciatic nerve. A pose shouldn’t be held longer than desirable to create the agitation in the bilateral or sinew but not the pain. Five breaths or 5 action is enough. The acuteness of the pose is the end point, not debilitation or muscle fatigue. The pose must be held quietly.

Yoga.
