All tissues require stress. You stretch cells in your body to change the factors they produce that will change your body with patience and dedication.
Yin Yoga is one of my favorite ways to do so. I believe it is best to practice yoga in a group setting in addition to a personal practice. Being in a group facilitates friendships, share group energy, gets you away from your own distractions at home. It doesn’t matter whether you are currently flexible or not. My classes are definitely all levels and all ages (early teens to 80 year olds thus far!). The changes I see in the students are far reaching with dedication.
*I think* the most important goal of Yin Yoga is to practice being present and find peace within yourself. Range of motion is huge too, and that will continue to increased with a dedicated practice. I won’t go into the myriad of benefits here.
I teach Yin Yoga at Vivify Hot Yoga in Rio Rancho NM. I would love to be part of your yoga journey. The setting an ambient room with quiet music. I try to keep it light-hearted. There is nothing to fear and much to be gained. Namaste,
