I had a wonderful experience with Yin Yoga, in the most amazing surroundings at the top of a wellness facility, with a perfect view calming music and great props.
Nature truly has a healing power and whenever possible I practice Yoga outside. And even though I was not outside, the view calmed my mind.
Yin Yoga is a slow form of Yoga where the Yoga postures are held for 3-5 minutes. Because of its slow pace, it slows down the mind and has a calming effect on the mind and body.
In the Yoga class we used bolsters as props, which I really liked and I have adapted it into my own Yoga practice, and I would like to share it with you.
Every morning I start my Yoga practice laying on a Yoga bolster (you can also use a pillow) – grounding down – feeling the contact to the mat and the bolster, and the stretch, the bolster provides for my back. It helps me to come into a deeper meditation in the start of my yoga practice.
