Yin Yoga @ Litchfield Community Center – Litchfield, IL
Sunday, November 19th, 2023
7 pm – 8:15 pm –

Yin is a simple, slow-paced, gentle style of yoga that has roots in both Hatha Yoga and Chinese Martial Arts. Rather than focusing on muscles like a classic yang yoga practice, yin focuses on the body’s extensive fascial network, tendons, ligaments and joints. It uses very basic postures, relying on body weight, gravity, yoga props, and time.

Though Yin is a gentle practice and will generally have a cooling effect rather than a sweaty one, it’s anything but easy! This practice takes a strong mental game! In addition to its many physical benefits, it teaches us to find stillness in the presence of discomfort and find relaxation and peace on the other side of that discomfort.

Practitioners are encouraged to establish their own “edge” in every pose—to work within the limitations of their own bodies, then are invited to find stillness and relax the muscles of the body in order to work into connective tissues. Poses are held in complete stillness for a period of time, usually 2-10 minutes. In yin yoga philosophy, time is more important than intensity. Time is what allows the body to relax into the stretch and allows the mind to surrender to the present moment.
Yin can be profoundly relaxing and grounding. It provides ample time and space to deepen and explore each pose while staying connected to the breath.
