    Props in Yin Yoga

    By Jamie Monte on Jan 30, 2022

    Yin Beginner

    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!

    Intro to Yin Yoga

    By Jamie Monte on Jan 1, 2022

    Yin Beginner

    Yin yoga offers the opportunity to find a profound release of tension in the deeper lying tissues in the body and can significantly increase your range of motion. In this class, Jamie introduces you to the 3 principles, the tattvas, and some of the beauty and benefits of the yin practice. As you practice please remain passive, relaxed, take your time. Before you begin, create a calming environment whatever that means for you. Perhaps you want to light a candle? You will need a blanket and a bolster (a couch pillow will work as long as it's firm). Your body and your nervous system will thank you for slowing down and opening deeply. Enjoy, yogis!
