What we'll do
We live in a 24/7 stimulating world. We have access to stimuli that distracts our mind at all hours of the day. Phones, Netflix, laptops etc, all that
We live in a world where we are bombarded with stimuli, stimuli that is available 24/7. Think about your laptops, phones and other mobile devices. It’s so easy to end up not switching off at all anymore. To end up with a mind that is constantly busy processing all that information that you throw at it. Whether the information is good, valuable or rubbish, it doesn’t matter, the mind still needs to deal with it.
The mind gets used to that amount of information and starts to crave stimuli if it gets quiet. So you end up browsing, looking for stuff, it doesn’t matter what as long as you fill the gaps. Gaps we really should allow to stay empty to find some sort of down time – for the mind to stop and for you to just be.
Any kind of dynamic form of yoga caters for this aspect of keeping yourself busy. Although the mind may calm down as a result of the active exercise, you are still feeding the part of you that wants intensity and wants to be stimulated. You just happen to have found yourself a healthier stimulus!
Yin yoga is the perfect complimentary style to a yang form of yoga such as Hatha or Vinyassa Flow. Learn to sit with yourself, find your silence and observe where your mind always pulls you.
During a Yin practice, poses are typically held for times ranging from 3 – 5 minutes and all poses are practiced seated or supine.
