Yin yoga is a passive contemplative practice of long holds that targets the connective tissue with the intention of lubricating the joints, calming the mind and emotions to open a portal to the spirit. This provides us with an opportunity to remember the truth of who we are in our essential nature. By targeting the subtle energy body, we support our emotional health and well being. When we maintain a posture for at least 3 minutes at an edge of slight discomfort this allows a healing mechanism to be triggered and enhances our ability to abide with whatever arises. This fortifies us on many levels, and cultivates our capacity to feel our true strength and our ability to confront and successfully navigate through whatever comes up in the practice and ultimately in life.This is a practice that strengthens us both on and off the mat.

YIN YOGA DESCRIBED
Lifeguide,Yoga teacher, intuitive and spiritual counselor, Tarot master, hypnotherapist
      

    My practice chooses the asanas that best targets each of the chakras. We intentionally invite attention towards each of  the chakras using specific breathing practices, visualizations, and affirmations  with the intention of healing and rebalancing each of them.
   
     Yin yoga targets the yin tissues, the joints, the ligaments and the bones to maintain their healthy capacity. Yin yoga is a chi enhancement practice that amplifies the quality of our energy, and supports a smooth mobility in the connective tissue. Yin tissues need to be pulled and compressed to maintain pliancy (when stressed appropriately they grow back  a little stronger and more pliant) and the meridians that course through them are nourished with more chi.
    Yin refers to the feminine aspect of our nature, that which is cooler, less mobile, more hidden, and mainly stationary.  This is a  practice of steady stress, by stimulating the circulation of chi through the meridians and the ligaments which allows us to maintain elasticity in the joints, which allows muscle groups to soften and exposes joints to pressure as it pulls the skeleton apart concentrating chi in deeper yin tissues.(bones and ligaments). We target the ligaments with the purpose of loading the ligaments with chi  (we are not stretching them.) Stimulating the healing of degenerative tissue as it is the chi that heals. This passive practice encourages the development of the more feminine, passive, receptive side of our nature which gives us the opportunity to be more balanced and enhances our overall well being.   
   This practice is truly a physically and spiritually theraputic practice that insures harmonious balance of the body, mind and spirit by providing stable strength and smooth mobility in the connective tissue, which houses a liquid rich and highly sensitive energetic system that is the portal between the physical and spiritual aspects of our being. Our state of mind is directly related to our energy body. With the invitation both mentally and physically of focusing the energy in the center of the body we fortify ourselves in our ability to overcome the distractions of emotional disturbance and overactive thoughts.
    Yin yoga can best be described as like an accupressure session, by applying intentional pressure through the asanas and enhancing and restoring energy that flows through the meridians. This practice insures healthy distribution of chi (life force energy) by increasing the flow of prana into more balanced patterns. This activating energy flows through the meridians (invisible rivers of energy) which flow through all tissues and bones moistening the joints and revitalizing the energy body. By pulling and pressurizing the tissue this triggers the body natural healing repair response inviting chi and blood to flow to these areas, making them more lubricated, stronger and more usable.

SO HOW DOES THIS PRACTICE ACTUALLY WORK?
    Thankfully, we have finally arrived at the full wisdom of who we really are, we now
know that our health and our weight is as much about what happens between our ears
as it is about what happens between our lips. Our thoughts, our consciousness and our
energy shapes us and determines our weight at least as much as our diet and our exercise
choices do. When we finally add these important factors into the equation then
we can really start making progress in utilizing all our faculties in arriving at our perfect
weight.
    No longer are we limited to the ideas of starving ourselves until we pass out or having to run ragged around
a million tracks in order to drop a few pounds and arrive at our optimum weight. As we move towards our new
holistic consciousness and away from the old black /white polarized thinking, we expand into a fresh new
perspective about how we can arrive at our healthiest most balanced body and weight. 
    This practice is designed to bring all these factors together in a complete practice, by utilizing a potent detox
breath, the use of affirmations to heal and align the consciousness and inviting the chakras back to balance.
The body shapes itself around the chakras, so when you are balanced internally you will be externally in shape.
Throughout this practice you will be guided back to the truth of who you are as a spiritual being, along with a
skillful use of the breath, visualizations, and affirmations. You will guided into the cultivation of compassion, (extending
loving kindness to the self) as a  support in managing stress, by stimulating the relaxation response.
You will be shown how to actually practice loving yourself. This will support you in returning  to your balance
mentally and emotionally.
    A shift is consciousness is required for us to start wanting what is healthy, when our thoughts are balanced and
in alignment with the truth of who we are in or essence, in our spiritual nature, we will naturally make choices to
be healthy. When we are balanced we will make choices that keep us balanced. when we are imbalanced we will
make choices that keep us imbalanced. So in order to attain our best natural weight we need first to arrive at our
remembering of the truth of who we are in our essence. Accepting ourselves as we are and knowing what is
realistically possible, as opposed to what we are supposed to look like, actually frees us up and allows us to arrive
at our best, healthiest body. Truly loving ourselves is essential in order to allow ourselves our most beautiful
body, this practice teaches how to elevate the idea of loving yourself into an act, a practice.
The yin yoga applies pressure to specific meridians to flood them with chi to support them in flushing out
any stored toxins in relation to those channels, the liver, the kidney, the spleen etc.,  the health of the organs is
directly related to the health of the meridians that flow through them. As we support the vitality and flow of chi
through the meridians we also support the health of the organs. As we flood the meridians with chi we support
the detoxification process.  Bringing the energy to the center of the body where the chakras resides supports in
harmonizing our chi which brings about a state of coherence, This is a chi enhancement practice which amplifies
the quality of energy and the focus of the mind, cultivating the more contemplative aspects of our nature which
allows us a portal, a pathway to remember the truth of our essential nature.
