and often also very dynamic yoga styles have been in the foreground. Often the asana practice in these
can be very demanding. Sometimes it is good to physically and of course, even in the more active yoga styles, the energetic and subtle
the energetic and subtle effects of the asanas come into their own. Nevertheless
nevertheless, many - consciously or unconsciously - longed for a calm, relaxing
Practice, in which one takes a lot of time for the individual asanas, so that their
Effects can fully unfold and work on the organism,
while you yourself enjoy the passivity and - holding the asana and possibly

Breathing without making any external movement. In such a
Yin Yoga, a regenerative style of yoga that focuses on the qualities of yin, is such a practice
qualities of Yin are central. In addition to the physical relaxation that arises in the
yin yoga, the soul is also nourished. It is in letting go
sometimes the most intensive way to find oneself!
Fascia training is also about deep regeneration - here primarily on a physical level - is about deep regeneration. The fasciae have only been recognised in recent Important role for the entire organism has only been properly recognised and and appreciated. Since then, various training programmes have been developed, training programmes have been developed that focus on addressing the connective fasciae. In yoga, among other things, it is Yin Yoga that particularly meets the criteria of fascia training Criteria of fascia training, so that there is an overlap here overlap here, so to speak. Yoga sessions that are specifically designed for detangling the Are also referred to as fascia yoga. But also outside of yoga, there are various types of fascia training. The Keeping the fascia healthy - preventively and regeneratively - can, according to scientific scientific findings, can have a comprehensive effect on the entire body. Thus back pain or other complaints of the musculoskeletal system Musculoskeletal system are often associated with hardened, agglutinated fascial structures Structures and can therefore be alleviated if the fasciae are specifically addressed and and doing something good for them. Fascia training therefore promises far-reaching benefits.
What is Yin Yoga, what is fascia is fascia training?
Yin yoga is, as already partly mentioned above, a regenerative, quiet style of yoga in which the practitioner remains in the individual asanas in the individual asanas for several minutes. Yin Yoga was developed by the Americans Paul and Suzee Grilley (although the basic elements of this yoga style have probably existed elements), but has also been very popular in Europe for some time And popular in Europe. By holding the different asanas for a long time The effects of the various asanas can unfold fully. Especially the connective tissue, connective tissue, which is also the focus of fascial training, is more strongly addressed than with a quick change of asanas or only holding the posture for a short time. Passive, receptive, soft - these are qualities that correspond to the yin, the female pole, as it is called in Female pole, as described in Chinese philosophy, and these qualities are also what Yin Yoga is about.
yin yoga teacher Stefanie Arend writes in an article that appeared in the magazine
YOGA AKTUELL magazine, she writes the following about the practice and the
Effects of Yin Yoga:
The yoga styles known and popular in the western world, such as Such as vinyasa flow, power yoga or Ashtanga yoga, are often very yang-oriented, i.e. they are actively yang, i.e. they are performed actively and powerfully, and the focus is on the muscles Muscles. In yin yoga, on the other hand, the exercises are done passively and without any strength force. The background to this is that it is not the muscles but the deeper layers of the body that are to be addressed Deeper layers of the body that are not usually reached in active yoga yoga - especially the fasciae, which are found throughout the body and which Body and surround the connective tissue, muscles, ligaments, tendons, joints and bones Joints and bones. The exercises are held much longer than in active yoga styles. This long holding harmonises the Harmonises the chi flow in the body. For people who have too little energy, the energy flow is stimulated. With too much chi, which can be just as harmful as too little chi as too little chi, the flow of chi is balanced. A balanced chi flow is Chi flow is important for maintaining the health of body, mind and soul. An important aspect is also the suppleness of the joints, to which little attention is paid in everyday life joints, to which little attention is paid in everyday life. The joints become become increasingly immobile with age, but Yin Yoga can slow down this process Slow down this process. Through the practice of yin yoga, the curves in the spine are Spine get the impulse to regenerate again. For most people these curves have atrophied due to hours of sitting every day, or they are they are incorrectly stressed and consequently cause pain. Back pain has become a common disease in our western culture. Yin yoga can counteract this gently but effectively. If the fasciae are gently through stretching, this ultimately has a positive effect on pain, which can be positive effect on pain, which can then be alleviated or even cured cured. Yin yoga also efficiently promotes mobility. If it does not improve noticeably in spite of regular muscle-oriented yoga practice the stretching of the fasciae can often lead to greater success by stretching the fasciae.
Most of the positions are performed while sitting or lying down. The area between the knees and the thoracic spine is the main area of spine. The choice of asanas is much smaller than in classical yoga, but still Yoga, but nevertheless sufficient for the intended purpose, as the selected exercises selected exercises address all areas of the body that are to be reached are to be reached. Personal variations are of course always possible.
As Fascia training is the term used to describe specific exercises for the fasciae, i.e. the soft tissue components of the connective tissue. Fascia training is designed to "unstick" the fasciae and to keep them supple. For this purpose, fascial training uses is done, for example, with springy or oblique movements. At fascial training ensures, among other things, that the fascial tissue is once again tissue is evenly flooded with fluid.
