At Iyashi, we mainly practice Yin Yoga which is a slow, deep practice that increases your flexibility by stretching & stimulating the connective tissue of the hips and spine rather than the muscles. This is a deeply relaxing and rejuvenating form of yoga where all the poses are done while sitting or lying down and are held for 1-2 minutes. It is beneficial for recovery and injury prevention of high impact sports. New depths in postures, deeper ranges of motion and an increased flow of energy are achievable. This is why so many students are finding Yin Yoga to be the perfect compliment and balance to their more active, yang practices (i.e. Bikram). It is great for all ages and perfect for beginners. A few of our teachers include some Yang poses and Hatha poses, although they are all done while sitting or lying down to ensure our customers enjoy the benefits of our Black Silica stones as well as the flexibility and benefits of Yoga.
Benefits of Yin Yoga include:
- Feeling calm and balanced
- Regulated energy levels (chi)
- Greater strength
- Improved health
- Stress levels lowered
- Greater stamina
- Flexibility of the body’s connective tissues and joints
- Slowed signs of aging
- Improved meditation
- Deeper relaxation
- Improved practice of yang yoga
This is our Thursday morning Yoga instructor, Janna.
“I have been teaching weekly Yin Yoga classes at Iyashi Bedrock Spa and found the combination of gentle yoga with the energetically charged heat of the hot rock room to be a very transformative experience. The yoga postures open up all the stored acids in the tissues and the heat draws it out through the sweat. The sweating at Iyashi is much more profound than any typical hot yoga class because of the natural infrared rays and negatively charged ions in the environment. Every week I go to teach it feels like my re-set button gets pressed and I have a very deep detox in a mere 1.5 hours. I always feel tangibly lighter and clearer afterwards, regardless of my prior good health and fitness. For the last few years I have been leading detox programs for individuals and small groups with good results and I am truly excited to discover the healing and detoxification potential of the Ganbanyoku hot rock experience!”.
