Yin and Yang

I had an aha moment this week with my ongoing struggle to establish a respectable yoga practice where I am gratefully listening to my body and following my breath.

Taoist yoga teacher, Paulie Zink, first taught Yin Yoga in the United States in the late 1970s. It is a meditative slow-paced set of postures or asanas designed to improve the flow of qi energy by applying moderate stress to the connective tissues, the tendons, fascia, and ligaments. Postures held for three to five minutes allow the body to completely surrender to not only the physical but also to the energetic, emotional and mental, presenting a moment of self-intimacy that is easily avoided in the faster paced yang yoga practices.

Words don’t do the experience justice. You have before you a Yin Yoga convert. It’s working. I have a deeper consciousness and a clearer acceptance of my physical body and a renewed commitment to be on the mat.
