Yin yoga in London helps you to reduce ‘mind chatter’ that’s a major cause of stress in modern living. Many of us are overloaded with mental activities due to social media, work commitments and the like. Yin yoga provides a fail-safe release from this onslaught of constant mental activity.  Many describe Yin yoga as an ‘antidote’ to the stress created by modern life in the 21st Century.

How does Yin yoga work?

In the technical sense, Yin yoga is a slow-paced variety of yoga. This makes Yin yoga highly popular in London, since many people wish to utilise yoga in the fight against stress caused by London’s fast-paced living.

Yin yoga’s poses are held for a greater period of time when compared to other forms of yoga. Some advanced Yin yoga practitioners hold these poses for around five minutes in total!

Common poses used during Yin yoga sessions include:

  • Caterpillar pose
  • Saddle pose
  • Sphinx Pose

Specifically, Yin yoga aims to enrich and deepen your range of motion. Yin yoga targets connective tissues. This gives you an enhanced access to joints, ligaments, tendons, fascia, and cartilage. Yin yoga targets these areas specifically because they are rich in connective tissues.

Thus, Yin yoga improves the circulation in joints. Also, your general flexibility will be greatly improved.  Yin yoga also has many mental benefits. This is because Yin yoga helps to promote inner silence. For this reason, some have compared Yin yoga to traditional meditation.

What are the long-term benefits of Yin yoga?

The long-term benefits of Yin yoga include:

  • Stimulation of hyaluronic acid
  • Avoidance of contracture
  • Improved bone density
  • Reduced degeneration
