Yin Mindfulness


Yin Mindfulness Yoga (正念阴瑜伽) is the practice of mindfulness (正念冥想) within the disciplines of Yin Yoga. This is a quiet and meditative practice that draws our focus inwards to the true essence of ourselves. The practice consists of long held stretches without muscular tension, in order to affect the body’s connective tissues, joints and ligaments. These tissues are compressed to an appropriate intensity to allow smoother flow of “chi” (顺气) or “energy” through our body, aiding joints lubrication and mobility. The stillness of the long held poses also help cultivate a deeper level of calmness, concentration and equanimity.

Who should practice Yin Yoga?
Yin yoga is for everybody. Beginners and practitioners of all ages will enjoy the calming pace as we hold each pose for a longer period of time. In my teaching experience, working professionals who lead a stressful lifestyle also found Yin Yoga tremendously beneficial as we devote time for reflection. This is also suitable for elderly who seek to maintain good mobility of their joints.

“Yin Yoga is a practice in stillness, patience, and non-reactivity. Through yin yoga we become adept at self-care. We become better listeners with practice tuning in; we become wiser as we get to know ourselves from the inside out; and we become more curious about the world through the exploration of our own inner worlds.” – Yoga Journal

「正念」+「阴瑜伽」= 正念阴瑜珈
我們把正念(mindfulness )的理念融入于阴瑜伽的体式里。阴瑜珈的特色,是在每个体式停留的较长時間(3至5分钟),目的是为了让肌肉得以慢慢放松,並且适当的挤压特定部位,進而调节气血循環和濡润身體关节。在練習阴瑜珈体式之余,我们引用正念的「内觀呼吸法」来引導意念,幫助身心放松,並活在當下。这对长期处在压力大,精神紧张或失眠的朋友们非常有帮助。正念阴瑜伽的步調较溫和缓慢,而且困難度可以依據個人狀況調整,非常适合瑜珈初学者或擔心身體狀況不能負荷的朋友,歡迎大家報名參加。
