About Yin Yoga
Three principles guide yin Yoga: playing our edge, becoming still, and holding for time.
Playing Our Edge
When we come into a pose, we want to play to our edge. As you settle into the pose, you'll feel resistance, go there, and then the second principle takes over - becoming still. Of course, you never practice any form of yoga in pain.
When you sharp or ringing pain, even when a limb starts to tingle like it's falling asleep means there is too much pressure. Always move out of the pose and readjust.
As you become still, the second principle takes over, called stillness. Stillness combined with time, the quality of the edge may change. After a minute or longer in the asana, our body will speak to us, open up, and perhaps invite us to go deeper in the pose. In this case, you'll be playing your edge and go a little big lower or wider, depending on the asana.
Bernie Clark explains that there are three qualities of stillness. The first stillness is with our body, and the reason for this is that Yin Yoga does not work the muscles, so by being still, we can move past the muscles and work deeper into the connective tissue.
The second advantage of the physical stillness is when the muscles are quiet, our breath naturally slows down, and as a result, we can quiet the mind, which leads us to the third principle, hold for time.
Hold For Time
Once to come to your edge, become still and hold for time. Time is the key ingredient in Yin Yoga.
Yin is a slow and steady practice that almost merges with meditation and your breath. It intends to release tension from the deepest tissues of your body while being present, becoming still to help you enter into complete mindfulness.
