YIN YOGA

AUF DEUTSCH

Yin Yoga ist ein ruhiger, meditativer Yogastil, bei dem die Haltungen für 3-5 Minuten lang am Boden - im Sitzen oder Liegen - passiv ausgeübt werden.

Der Fokus liegt auf den tieferen Körperschichten wie den Gelenken, Bändern, Sehnen und vor allem auf den Faszien, weniger auf den Muskeln. Wir geben uns dabei ganz der Schwerkraft hin, lassen los und öffnen uns dabei Stück für Stück für die weibliche/Yin Energie, die uns zur Ruhe kommen lässt.

YIN YOGA

IN ENGLISH

 

Yin Yoga is a calm, meditative yoga style that is practiced either sitting or lying down, in which the postures are passively held for 3-5 minutes.

The focus lies on deeper body layers and connective tissues, such as the joints, ligaments, tendons and especially the fascia, much less on the muscles. We let gravity take over, letting go and gradually open up the feminine/Yin energy, which lets us find inner peace.

The Difference Between Yin Yoga and Restorative Yoga

These practices are similar in the sense that they are slow, meditative practices focused on long holds, but how do they differ?

  • Stretch: In yin yoga, there is an active stretch but in restorative yoga, the goal is to be 100% supported and passive with no active stretch.

  • Focus: In yin yoga, the focus is on stretching your connective tissues but in restorative yoga, the focus is on the passive release of mind-body tension.

  • Props: Both styles may use props but in yin yoga, if props are used, they are used to either deepen or soften the stretch. In restorative yoga, props are used to completely support your body. Generally, restorative yoga will use far more props than yin, which may include straps, blankets, blocks, sandbags and especially bolsters.

  • Poses: Yin yoga poses are held for about 3-5 minutes, while restorative yoga poses are held for anywhere from 5-10 minutes.
