The Importance of Yin Yoga for Physical and Mental Health

While there may not be immediate consequences, neglecting your physical and mental health may result in long term health issues. Yin Yoga is the perfect solution to making your health priority.

What is Yin Yoga?

Yin is the practice of slow and gentle yoga poses that focus on enhancing breathing awareness and developing mindfulness. Unlike other yoga practices, yin is a gentler form of yoga that focuses on breath, thoughts and body sensations.

This style of exercise is suitable for those who are beginning or those who are seeking to find a balance in their workout routine. It is the perfect addition to any workout, allowing you to slow down and engage in quiet and reflective exercise. Yin Yoga priorities relaxing the body and mind. In a world of busyness and unpredictability, yin yoga is the perfect way to rest and refocus yourself physically and mentally.

Who should practice Yin Yoga?

Anyone that is looking to begin a more active lifestyle should incorporate yin yoga into their routine! This form of yoga holds simple poses for a longer duration while encouraging deep reflection.  This exercise is a great way for individuals with health concerns or injuries to stay active with a low intensity workout. For people who are just beginning their fitness journey, this allows you to learn poses and get comfortable with the mental and physical aspects of a more active lifestyle.

With the constant changes and demands of life, it’s important to find time to take care of yourself.  This style of exercise is the perfect solution to those feeling overwhelmed with stress. Setting aside time to focus on mental health is just as important as physical health. Yin Yoga perfectly incorporates both mental and physical mindfulness with gentle and slow paced movements.
