How ya feel YIN?
Yin yoga works deeply into the body by targeting the connective tissues such as ligaments, joints, 15 bones and fascia. A yin practice is most beneficial when the body is cool or not warmed up in order to access the deeper tissues instead of relying on the muscles. Unlike the more traditionally known Yang asanas (poses), Yin postures are held for one to five minutes allowing the body to soften into the pose creating space in the body. Props such as blankets, blocks, bolsters and straps may be used to help the individual settle into a pose. Because asanas are held for an extended period of time, the mind will ultimately be challenged as well. Since this practice focuses on listening to your body, it’s ideal for all body types and individuals new or returning to the mat.
Nikki Villanti is a Hudson Valley Native who loves Yoga, Khaleesi (her dog), animals, nature, photography, food, laughing, music fun and anything that brings happiness to life. She was first introduced to yoga while living in the state of Florida .Nikki’s teaching style ranges from slow/gentle paced flows to challenging practices that test the body as well as the mind using plenty of modifications and centering breath work suitable for every body at any stage of life. She’s a big advocate for listening to your body and mind to recognize what you need in the present and be accepting of it.
