The quiet power of yin yoga

Carliann Langley explores the wonderful healing powers of yin yoga, one of the ancient discipline’s more subtle forms

You can be quiet and powerful. Before we delve into why we all need some regular yin time, let’s first look at what yin yoga is all about. It’s a slow, simple, mindful, practice of long held postures, which cultivate energetic balance, physical harmony and peace for the mind.

You may know the sutra ‘Chitta Vritti Nirodha’. Yin allows our body to settle better into meditation. The purpose of yoga is to enter into a meditative state from which realisation may arise; yoga is a psycho-spiritual practice aimed at ultimate liberation. It’s a science of building harmony and overcoming disharmony, so the mind can shine in its true nature of purity, warmth and peace. Yin yoga and meditation are the perfect partnership to enable us to progress on this path so we can cultivate balance of sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems, mind and body, conscious and unconscious.
