This is a practice in demand! If you are looking to specialize, Yin is In!
Yin Yoga has become a fixture in many Bay Area studios and fitness centers and it is quickly gaining popularity worldwide as well. A deep and soothing alternative to more aggressive styles of yoga perfect for “people-who-do-too-much,” Yin Yoga was originally introduced to the yoga world by lineage holder and master teacher Paul Grilley. I studied, and assisted, directly with Paul Grilley as well as alongside Yin Yoga master teachers Sarah Powers and Paulie Zink.
The emphasis in Yin Yoga is on releasing muscles rather than contracting them. Each unique class is taught exclusively on the floor, holding passive poses for 3-5 minutes each. Yin Yoga poses target the tighter connective tissues in the hips, hamstrings, and lower spine. It’s practiced in a meditative environment. As a pure flexibility practice, this is an excellent tool for meditators, aging baby-boomers, injured/active athletes, and those new to yoga. It helps release accumulated tension in the body and simultaneously find a peaceful place for the mind.
