Yin Yoga urges us to slow down and go deeper.
It is a style of yoga in which each passive asana (posture) is held for an extended period of time (5 minutes or more per pose is typical). In a fast paced vinyasa class we often miss connecting with the posture, breathe and deeper muscles. Yin yoga applies emphasis to slowing down and holding passive stretch-like postures. This in turn opens the connective tissues of the body, tendons, fascia and ligaments with the aim of increasing circulation and flexibility.
This intimate practice of yoga requires students to be ready to get intimate with the self, with feelings, sensations, and emotions, something of which I have noticed can be easy to avoid in a fast paced yoga practice. Yin yoga is often used in programs that deal with addictions, eating disorders, anxiety and deep pain or trauma, as well as simply for deep relaxation and opening of the body & mind.
Syama Masla was raised in a family of Bhakti yogis and is very grateful for her teachers and life long inspirations, Srila Prabhupada & Radhanath Swami. She teaches yoga and Ayurveda in the New York City as well as 200 hr yoga teacher trainings and traveling retreats around the world with her sister, husband, father and brother bud! She loves animals and has been a lifelong vegetarian. Syama places a strong emphasis on tapping into the rhythm of breath as it guides movement. With over 1000 hours of certification in both Hatha and Vinyasa yoga, she keeps the practice rooted in its tradition and uses creative sequencing, inviting her love of dance and rhythm.
