Different kinds of yoga are suitable for different people. Sometimes, the kind you hate may be exactly what you need.


For example, Yin Yoga, which takes a long time to maintain asana, is difficult for people who are stiff and impatient. One is that they can't calm down, and the other is that the pose hurts more than the soft one.



In fact, more impatient people should practice Yin Yoga more.


When we start practicing Yin Yoga, keep in mind that Yin Yoga is slow and static, with a sense of centrality and obedience.




Three Main Points of Yin Yoga



Point 1

Make your chosen pose in moderation, that is, make a move calmly and cautiously to keep your breath calm and soothing.



If we are too fast or too deep into Yin Yoga, resistance or tension in our inner state will hinder the flow of gas and cause greater hindrance to energy.


On the contrary, if we do not push too hard, avoid more strong feelings, and allow the power of this part to expand completely. Its tension and power can stimulate the flow of gas.




Point 2

Stay still and muscle soft and follow the direction of gravity.

When we practice yin yoga, our goal is to flow gas through joints and bones, so we must reduce the movement and stay in a certain pose.


Sometimes we are bound to feel that the muscle is wetter and further invested in a deeper pose, but sometimes we have to accept that we have to go too far in a short period of time and need to go back, or use assistive tools.




Point 3

We have to stay for a while in every move.


Just like acupuncture and moxibustion, acupuncture does not pull the needle out immediately after it is inserted. We need to correctly guide the gas to a specific pathway to help activate every organ with refined energy, which takes time and patience.



Once we know why we should make an action and start practicing, our attention should first focus on the breathing of the body. Slow breathing calms our minds and helps to balance the flow of energy.




Remember that breath flows with our attention. Our attention lies not only in the length and depth of breathing, but also in the direction of breathing. As we inhale, attention extends from the chest, where we first feel the inhale, to the pelvis.


Use our attention to promote the flow of breath from top to bottom, and when we exhale, we reverse this pattern, and breath flows back to the center of the heart from bottom to top.
