Profiles in Health and Wellness

Please enjoy this RNN’s Profiles in Health and Wellness featured guest Jenn Thomas who is a Yin Yoga instructor. Jenn’s first introduction to Yin Yoga was as a student in a Yin Yoga class ten years ago. She liked it’s ability to help her find that deep quite space and deeper connection to herself. Jenn explains that Yang represents engagement, connection and outward reaching while Yin represents the softer, quieter and deeper surrender. In Yin Yoga one stays on the floor and may hold a physical posture for five to ten minutes. The bigger intention of the practice is to effect change on the connective tissue of the body and allow it to be nourished, stimulated and to release tension thus increasing the joints range of motion. Props such as blocks, blankets and bolsters can be used but is not necessary. Jenn feels it is a mindful practice because of the amount of time spent in the poses. It allows students “a chance to really settle into the way things are and to witness the movement of life through the moments of quiet peaceful space.”
