So What is Yin?

So What is Yin?

Yin Yoga is a modern style of yoga which is informed by traditional Chinese medicine.

It can be confusing…
The term ‘Yin’ alone refers to the opposition of ‘Yang’: Yin being the more soft, soothing, feminine and Yang as the more dynamic, active, masculine aspects of being.

Sitting in the eye of the storm

Sitting in the eye of the storm

“I want to feel centered & grounded.” This is something I hear a lot from people, and also with myself.

What does that mean to you?

For me it makes me think about how I’m showing up amidst the turbulence of my life, and applying the ongoing practice of remaining steady, strong & calm with what is happening - neither trying to fight it or escape it, but being with it without being it!

It follows a basic law of understanding nature with appreciation at its forefront. Knowing that the world around us and everything in it is inextricably linked. Not one thing can exist unaffected by another.
