Being in a Yin yoga pose or sitting in meditation allows the mind to become still. As we anchor or hold a focus with our breath we notice our bodies, our emotions and our thoughts. Sometimes just as we recognize a feeling or sensation it changes and morphs into another and with this we realize we are changing beings. From moment to moment we fluctuate uncovering the awareness of understanding, flexibility and resiliency.
The busyness of our lives renders the slowing down as necessary to finding balance and discovery. In the Yin yoga practice the attainment of the pose is secondary. Being present within the pose allows one to feel the uncomfortable sensations, the emotions of joy or irritability and the distractions of the mind. We learn as we live in the moments that even the moments have a beginning, a middle and an end.
