YIN YOGA in Basel

Relax into the present moment

Yin yoga is a peaceful practice- at least from the outside! It can be, quite challenging to stay still in various poses for longer than just a few breaths. But that is exactly where "the magic happens". If we become still, we start to notice the movements in our mind. We are also able to connect to the sensations in our body, happening all the time, being pleasant and sometimes unpleasant. By giving the same loving care and attention to every sensation or thought, we learn to become "the observer" of what is happening within. This practice will sooner or later lead to peace, clarity and equanimity. So much for the mind and spirit.


Of course we benefit also physically from Yin yoga: our muscles learn to relax completely which helps to go beyond into the deeper connective tissues, which often are neglected and untouched. Working with fascia, ligaments and tendons, we need patience, because we stay longer in each asana, in order to create change. Yin Yoga is a gentle practice and we use a lot of props to support the body. Practiced on a regular basis, there will be more (joint-) flexibility, less distress in body and mind and often we even sleep better!

A wonderful tool - also in addition to more active yoga stiles.
