Why Practice Yin & Mindfulness?
Mindfulness is a scientifically proven approach for reducing stress. It can also alter the way our brain processes stressful thoughts and events, leading to long term emotional resilience and an increase in happiness. It can reduce blood pressure; improve the immune system and the quality of our sleep.
Yin provides many physical benefits including increased flexibility, and creates ease and fluidity in the joints whilst improving range of motion. It is helpful for meditators, because suppleness in joints allows us to sit with more ease and comfort. Beyond the physical it is about slowing down and turning towards our inner experience.
Combining these two practices provides a greater opportunity to explore our inner world, developing and deepening our mindfulness practice beyond the formal meditation; each pose provides an opportunity for training the mind in present moment awareness.
