Why Choose Santosha for your Online Studies?


What Makes Yin Yoga so Popular?


Yin Yoga is a mindful style of yoga where postures are practiced in a static way for an extended period of time. By positioning our body in a particular pose and then letting go, gravity does the work. We relax our muscles and apply moderate stress to the deepest layers of connective tissues of the body – tendons, fascia, and ligaments – improving the health and mobility of joints. We can begin to calm the mind and allow a deeper connection to Self.


Yin invites the harmonizing of the pervasive connective tissue in the body by ’stressing’ entangled fibers from physical/emotional/mental tension or from physical immobility – resulting in smoothly textured flowing chi energy. These rivers of energy in the body are important for the passage of water and pervasive communication throughout your body. After a Yin Yoga practice the fluidity of your energy is strongly palpable and pleasant.


Yin Yoga is a profound practice that opens up energetic blockages in the physical, emotional and mental bodies. A courageous and nourishing practice, it is directly meeting yourself through the raw sensations in your body. Awareness is sharpened as you bear witness to your conditioned patterns. Working the deeper levels of the body, heart, mind: the connective tissues and the channels of the meridians - it is an an odyssey into the meditative aspects of yoga.


Yin Yoga helps you cultivate kind engagement with your inner self. It is a practice of self-inquiry and ease. It is a spacious practice that opens your breath and understanding. It is a beautiful complementary practice to active, Yang Yoga. Many people confuse Yin and Restorative feeling that both are the same practice. Whilst they share many similarities – Yin practices are passive and focus on the meridian lines whilst allowing deep introspection.


Restorative poses are designed to be very subtle, with no deep stretching sensations. Typically restorative uses more props so that the practitioner is completely comfortable in the pose, allowing complete surrender and letting go. The poses are designed to gently open the body to allow for the release of tension, deeper breathing and relaxation.


Yin yoga intends to place a healthy amount of stress to our joints and connective tissue (fascia, tendons and ligaments) by tensioning or compressing the tissue, which helps to release tension and hydrate the fascia keeping it supple, improving mobility in the body. Yin also helps to move blocked ‘chi’ in the body and nourishes meridians, assisting with emotional, mental and physical health.
