Based on the seasons of Yin Yoga, we are entering the season of introspection. Slowing down to come into a meditative time of the year, is the perfect time to try Yin Yoga for glowing skin.
The benefits of practicing Yin Yoga are long, these are just a few:
- creates a calmer more focused state of mind
- untangles knots
- boosts your metabolism
- improves posture
- gives you a glowing skin
Posture- 1 Reclining Twist
Holding the poses whilst practicing present moment awareness, mindfulness lends space and time for the body & the mind to relax. It is the perfect practice to reconnect to yourself, push pause, breathe, find clarity and focus.
Posture- 2 Squat
We tend to hold on to things: thoughts, experiences, and emotions. Yin Yoga lends the time and space to release what no longer serves you. Being vulnerable whilst releasing through stillness & breath. Creating space for newness.
Posture- 3 Metabolism – Child Pose
Yin yoga is a very restorative yoga. It brings us back to our center. Connecting us, mind and body through conscious awareness has very stress-reducing effects. Together with the right diet, this practice invites renewal within you, improving your metabolism.
Posture- 4 Sphinx
Unlike counting on our muscles to hold the poses, during Yin Yoga practice we focus on alignment: Breath with body, sit bones with spine, sensations with breath, body with Earth. Allowing a comfortable flow of breath and energy, enhancing your natural posture, to take up space.
Posture- 5 Glow
Finding comfort in deep stretches, in stillness stimulates our parasympathetic nervous system. This is where we relax, restore, digest boosting the detoxification system in our body. It is also the time for renewal. Renewal of self – awareness. Renewal of cells. Renewal of collagen and elastin. Lending our skin a healthy glow.
Yin Yoga is my passion – it counter balances the very active driven lives we lead benefiting body, mind, spirit in a beautiful relaxed way that can only lead to uplifting inner sensations that shows on the outside. Girl you glow!
