Yin Yoga & Fascia Release
In Chinese philosophy, the yin yang symbolizes the duality and interdependency of the natural world. Things that are yang are moving, changing, and vigorous. In contrast, things that are yin are still, static, and calm.
The majority of western yoga practices have evolved into being very yang- lots of movement, with an emphasis on stretching the muscles. Muscles are yang, while connective tissues like tendons and fascia are yin. Yin Yoga compliments the muscular (Yang) Hatha Yoga as many poses are held from 1 to 8 minutes so that muscles and deep connective tissue are simultaneously stretched and strengthened giving them a rubber band memory not achieved in traditional exercise.
Fascia Release is about exploring the body and locating areas using the props to hydrate and mobilise your Myo-fascia Tissues- Connective tissues. The largest tissue of the human body. Deep tissue self massage can relieve tension, aid recovery from injuries and prevent future injuries but nourishing these all important tissues- that connect and seperate everything in the body.
This is of extreme importance to the athlete as the connective tissue attaches muscle to bone and stabilises all of the joints thus, preventing or minimising injury when the athlete is spontaneous in action, opposed to having controlled safe form in a gym workout.
Equally important to those recovering from injury, want to prevent injuries, and those who sit for long periods of time.
Whether you're super active or not- Yin & Fascia Release is the perfect practice to balance out our lives off the mat.
