Yin-Yoga... is ostensibly body work, but at the end it is a wonderful entry and bases for our harmony of body, mind and soul. Current research of fascia, our body tissue, evidently reveals that it is worth to take special care about this aspect of our body:
Yin Yoga... focuses fascia, the meridians according to the eastern world`s science of TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicin). The very specific of fascia is that it crosses our whole body - from head to feet being interconnected. There is no beginning and there is no end. The fascia network interrelates everything in our body. Fascia offers connections that allow - above all - body and its posture.
Fascia allowing strength and relaxation are subtle strings, that offer structure and support to our body and are known as our "connective tissue".
Being interconnected among themselves, they offer stable and stiff tissue structures, that built layers like nets around our muscles, nerves and bones which permeate our whole body, separating muscles from each other, protecting our bones and organs.
Healthy fascia are orderly structured, relaxed, keep our body internally together.
Although being of high strength and consistence they show high elasticity and tear- resistant. Under the influence of negative stress, by lack of movement and exercise or deprivation from work they agglutinate or stiffen, loose slipperiness and flexibility. Our muscle structur then gets limited, immovable, can stiffen and begins to hurt - finally even chronically.
The more our fascia structure gets stretched, the more our body develops power and energy and holds it availabe. The immune system is strengthened and experiences stimulus effects- and so our mind: mental power as a result of continuous yin practice.
Yin-Yoga keeps our fascia in motion, keeps them smooth and pliable. Everybody who practices Yin-Yoga regularly, who perceives breathing and is mindful of his or her mental health and supporting it at the same time, will experience the intuition of feeling on top of the world.
This surplus of power and the feeling of increased harmony of body, mind and soul is primarily a result of our work with our fascia. After each session of yin yoga we feel more elastic, fresh, empowered - simply regenerated and rejuvenated.
