What is yin yoga? A yin yoga poem

What is Yin Yoga?

Yin Yoga is that slight pause between an inhale and an exhale

Yin Yoga is the inquisitive mind of a young child

Yin Yoga is the intuitive sense of knowing that comes from deep within your heart

Yin Yoga is that sweet nostalgic song that brings you back home to yourself

Yin Yoga is the relief of finally taking your bra off after a long day

Yin Yoga is the space between the question and the answer

Yin Yoga is the reminder that we don’t have to force ourselves into boxes that we clearly don’t fit in

Yin Yoga is a long, honest, raw, conversation with yourself

Yin Yoga is the mirror we learn to look at ourselves in through eyes of love and compassion

Yin Yoga is giving yourself permission to love yourself

Yin Yoga is the kindness that comes from understanding

Yin Yoga is the understanding that comes from experience

Yin Yoga is the shift from knowing to understanding

Yin Yoga is the blueprint that teaches us how to be

Yin Yoga is remembering what it means to be human

Yin Yoga is learning how to breathe again

Yin Yoga is learning how to trust again

Yin Yoga is the muddy soil from which a lotus is able to grow

Yin Yoga is the wisdom that comes with age

Yin Yoga is the unconditional love that a mother has for her child

Yin Yoga is the shadow that gives us a clue to what it is that is blocking the light

Yin Yoga is the stillness of a warm summer’s night

Yin Yoga is the release of repressed fears, tears and memories

Yin Yoga is the long embrace of reunited lovers

Yin Yoga is accepting what we cannot change

Yin Yoga is the old friend who always says it the way it is

Yin Yoga is understanding the difference between pain and discomfort

Yin Yoga is the relationship you build with discomfort

Yin Yoga is the realisation that life doesn’t have to be such a desperate struggle

Yin Yoga is the relationship you have with yourself

Yin Yoga is listening to the things that we usually choose not to hear

Yin Yoga is seeing things the way that they really are

Yin Yoga is getting out of your head and into your heart

Yin Yoga is realising your jaw has been clenched for years and it would feel good to let go

Yin Yoga is peeling back the layers of yourself to find out who you really are

Yin Yoga is the precious gift of time that we all take for granted

Yin Yoga is realising that you are already exactly where you need to be

Yaz’s Yin yoga workshop is Sat 5th December 16:45 – 18:45 – in the studio and online with access for 30 days
