Yin yoga consists of long-held (5 minute) floor postures, which mainly affect the spine, hips, and pelvis. Yin specifically targets the connective tissue where we hold much of our emotional and physical trauma. As we age, our connective tissue tends to dry out and become brittle. Regular Yin practice helps to bring moisture back into the tissues, therefore, lessening joint issues and enhancing overall mental and physical well-being.
A sound bath is meant to relax, balance, and heal by facilitating a shift in the brain wave state. Through frequencies, it’s possible to shift down from normal waking consciousness to a relaxed consciousness and into a more meditative state which can bring about deep internal healing.
Yin yoga, in combination with a sound bath, can create endless possibilities for healing by encouraging the free flow of qi (energy) through the 6 main meridians (energy lines) which pass through the hips and pelvic region and may invigorate and invite openness within our chakras (energy centers).
