A more individual approach to yin yoga
Practicing Yin yoga with a more individual approach on yin yoga, means we search for tension and when found, we apply the appropriate tools for that individual to release the tension in the fascia, so mobility, circulation and muscular connection activates again. Yin yoga stems back more to its authentic roots from “Raj asanas” /meditative asana explored in the Hathayoga Pradipika and also merging back from the initial science from yoga on how to target tension via working from the fascia to the muscle, from the subtle to the physical. This way, it is yin working towards yang.
In this approach to yin yoga the yin practice is led to be a great complementary practice to any “yang” oriented practice, as preparation for meditation, tension reducing, mind strengthening, relaxation, preparation for pranayama and more vigorous practices and as a great way of balancing the inner and outer aspects of living. In the first module we explore yin from a more ground level, and look at how to begin a home practice. In module two, we set sails towards how energy is being transmitted, altered and balanced through the Yin in corporation with the Chakra theory, Ayurveda and the TCM /meridian system. In module 3, we delve deeper into the more individual therapeutic approaches, techniques and appliance models.
This approach is founded by Ulrica, after many years of research, practicing various other approaches in yin yoga as well as deepening her understanding of anatomy, meditation, physiology, psychology, indian philosophy and more.
