I denna lĂ„ngsamma typ av yoga frigör vi spĂ€nningar i bindvĂ€ven, den kallas fascia och omger de flesta delar av kroppen, frĂ„n de djupaste till de ytliga nivĂ„erna. Denna vĂ€vnad Ă€r ganska ”trög” och behöver tid för att kunna slĂ€ppa efter. DĂ€rför stannar vi nĂ„gra minuter i olika positioner, oftast ligger eller sitter vi pĂ„ mattan och andas med nĂ€rvaro och medvetenhet.

Som mÀnniskor har vi skapat vanor under livet, som bildat mönster i bÄde kropp och sinne och dessa Àr nÀra kopplade till vÄra tankar och kÀnslor. Yin-Yogan hjÀlper oss att bli medvetna om vÄra mönster och stödjer oss att hitta vÄrt naturliga sÀtt att vara.

I början kallades yin-yoga för ”daoist-yoga” pĂ„ grund av sin bakgrund i traditionell kinesisk medicin. Förutom bindvĂ€ven behandlas Ă€ven meridianer och akupunkturpunkter genom vilan i de olika positionerna. Yin-yoga Ă€r ocksĂ„ influerad av mindfulness och den buddhistiska traditionen. NĂ€rvaro, medvetenhet och medkĂ€nsla Ă€r bland flera andra hjĂ€lpfulla nycklar för att möta möjligheter och hinder.

Yin Ă€r en av delarna av yin och yang och vi behöver bĂ„da dessa i livet. Dock tenderar vi i denna snabba vĂ€rld, att spendera mycket tid i ”yang-lĂ€ge” sĂ„som ”att göra, styrka, fart, prestera, dynamisk, forcera, utĂ„t”. Yin handlar om ”att vara, mjukhet, lĂ„ngsamhet, slappna av, slĂ€ppa taget, ta emot, inĂ„t”. Det rĂ„der ömsesidigt beroende mellan yin och yang och de kan inte existera utan varandra. NĂ€r yin och yang Ă€r i balans upplever vi stunder av vĂ€lbefinnande.

I yin-yoga kommer vi i kontakt med oss sjÀlva och vi kan fÄ syn pÄ vÄra vÀrderingar, intentioner och syften i livet. Vanliga upplevelser Àr ökad flexibilitet, öppenhet och Àkthet i kropp och sinne. Det vi lÀr om oss sjÀlva pÄ yogamattan öppnar för nya perspektiv och medvetenhet om hur vi vill vara och agera i vardagen.

——————ENGLISH——————

Welcome to three hours of Yin-yoga – give yourself time to relax and get in contact with your body and mind.

In this slow pace kind of yoga we release tensions in the connective tissue. It is called the fascia and surrounds most parts in the body, from the deepest to the superficial levels. This tissue is rather stiff and needs time to let go of its tightness. Therefore we stay for some minutes in the different positions, mostly laying or sitting on the mat, breathing with presence and awareness. 

As human beings we have created habits throughout life, which have produced patterns in both body and mind and these are closely connected to our thoughts and emotions. The Yin-yoga helps us be aware of our patterns and support us finding our natural way of being. 

In the beginning, Yin-yoga was called “Daoist-yoga” because of its background in Traditional Chinese Medicine. Beyond the fascia, meridians and acupuncture points are also treated by resting in the different positions. Yin-yoga is also influenced by Mindfulness and the Buddhist tradition. Presence, awareness, and compassion are among other helpful keys to meet possibilities and obstacles.

Yin is one of the parts of Yin and Yang, and we need both of these in life. Although in this fast paced world we tend to spend much time in the “yang-mode” as in “do, strong, speed, performance, force, dynamic, outside”. Yin is about “be, soft, slow, relax, let go, receive, inside”. Interdependence prevails between Yin and Yang and they can’t exist without each other. When Yin and Yang are in balance we experience moments of well-being in life. 

In Yin-yoga we get in contact with ourselves and we can catch sight of our values, intentions and purpose in life. Experiences from Yin-yoga often include increased flexibility, openness and authenticity in both body and mind. What we learn about ourselves on the yoga mat opens up new perspectives and brings about awareness in how we will be and act in our daily life.
