Seems simple and non sense right?

How long can you stay without breathing?
A few minutes: correct!
You can go for weeks without food, days without water, but only a few minutes without breathing. Breathing has an immediate impact on your mind, body and health: even the act of inhaling vs. exhaling affects your nervous system differently. It’s common to train in diet, exercise and even hydration. It should be common to exercice your breathing for your wellbeing.
“When the breath wanders the mind also is unsteady. But when the breath is calmed the mind too will be still, and the yogi achieves long life. Therefore, one should learn to control the breath.” – Svatmarama

In the yoga world and different practices, a yang practice is one that is more active, dynamic, heated, and movement oriented. It is designed to get the muscles working and strengthened, and to allow energy to be activated and circulated within the system. A yang practice is the more well-known and traditional type of hatha yoga practice.
A yin practice is quite different. It involves a more meditative approach, which means that it is not so much movement oriented as it is present-moment-awareness oriented. It is slower and softer, and postures are held for extended periods of time (often at least 2-5 minutes). This allows something different to happen with the energy in the body. The energy has the capacity not only to circulate and move, but also to transform.
Along with increasing flexibility it encourages a feeling of release and letting go, a place to surrender. Yin yoga poses open up areas of the body that may have been untouched for a while and can resurface these deep memories and emotions. It can be feel extremely challenging in the moment and can lead to various reactions such as frustration, anger, tears and sadness however afterwards you will feel lighter, a sense of letting go, a full heart and a clearer mind.
Beware though, it is slower but not easier! It will demand engangement within your body and your mind.
Welcome to your window to stillness. It calms and balances the mindbody.
Re-set, restart and go!
Mysore Style self-practice is the traditional, lineage based method of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga as developed by guru Sri K. Pattabhi Jois of Mysore, South India. Taught in the traditional way with focus on strength, flexibility, alignment and enjoyment. The student is taught slowly at their own pace. Postures are taught sequentially, drawing from the Ashtanga set sequences, adding on postures over time.
I guide you to focus on synchronizing the breath with movement by building the foundations: the student ends up with a practice they can do independently of a teacher or class and is not unlike a moving meditation.
This process produces internal heat and a purifying sweat that detoxifies the muscles and organs. The result is better circulation, vitality, light and flexible body, strength, a calm and peaceful mind. It is a unique and powerful way of developing a yoga practice where individual growth is valued and honored, and all students from beginners to advanced practitioners learn side by side.
Asthanga has the capacity and the power to teach you how committed you are with your body and with your wellbeing.
Exciting, punishing, infinitely rewarding.
If you are tired, hungry for energy or overstimulated with a racing mind this could be the answer.

Both Chinese and Indian share this spiritual wisdom in where our physical bodies are simply energy centers that circulate and distribute energy in order to function optimally to minimize disease in the body and stress in the mind. Yin yoga can have such a positive impact on your physical and emotional health. Yin Yoga is challenging and very demanding. This combination of experiencing body, breath, mind awareness in the present moment is often challenging but also very cleansing.
