Yoga Love – Yin Aspect

Yang yoga; power yoga, vinyasa or any types of active asana practices sustain countless physical and emotional health benefits, especially for those living a sedentary modern lifestyle. However, especially for those who are active in their daily routines, as we need a balance in everything, consider trying Yin style of yoga. As Yin is the stable, unmoving, hidden aspect, Yin sessions consist long duration of the generally passive poses.

If you need to relax and ease your body and mind, if you need to work on your connective tissue: ligaments, tendons, and fascia, Yin sequences are best for you. It’s known that myofascial release, which you can also attain by massage or foam rolling, also increases a range of motion and reduces pain and recovery time.

Here you can find very well prepared session by Jennifer Raye. I recommend you put your warm clothes on and ease into the stillness.

Zen Stories ☯

An old man walks down to the beach and sees it is covered with tens of thousands of starfish, as far as the eye can see. Far down the beach he sees a young girl who is picking the starfish up, one by one, and tossing them back in the ocean.

Amused, he walks to the girl to speak with her. “Little girl,” the old man says, “What are you doing?”

“I’m saving these starfishes lives,” says the girl. “If I don’t throw them back in the water, they’ll drown. They need the water to live.”

The old man laughs to himself. Näive girl, he thinks. “But you are only one person. There are tens of thousands of starfish on this beach. How can you possibly make a difference?”

The girl bends down, picks up a star fish, looks at it, looks up at the man, tosses it into the surf, then says, “I made a difference for that one.”
