In the yin practice, we want to feel something - not too much and not too little. Comfortably uncomfortable in most poses. We are looking to create healthy stress on the deep tissues in the body -the yin tissues. They respond and become more resilient with this type of training rather than with movement which is what our muscles or yang tissues need. Props can help us relax and tell our nervous system we are safe. Bolster, blankets, blocks, strap, chair, wall. Get creative with your props at home - use a tie from your robe as a strap, stiff couch cushion, or pillow as a bolster. Use books for blocks!
