Yin Restoration is a personalized experience meant to tilt your body’s scale back into balance, whether you’re an elite powerlifter, a new parent, a high functioning professional, have pain, or are someone with anxiety, depression, or body tension.
Following a robust virtual, or in-person, evaluation with me — a certified Yoga Alliance Yin Yoga teacher and Doctor in Physical Therapy– I create personalized Yin Restoration sessions for you, to be done virtually or at your home together. Each session is built on Yin-style yoga poses, and guided by Physical Therapy, breath, and metabolic principles of wellness. What does this mean?
Yin is a stretch-based practice that very intentionally places your body in safe positions to challenge your tension points, like the tension you might feel in your hips or neck.
The tissue in your body that is often responsible for those tension points is called fascia, and it is an organ-like system that houses a dense volume of nerve endings, or receptors, that communicate to the brain.
If fascia isn’t optimally healthy, that communication in your body can become dysfunctional, which can affect things like pain signaling, healing, digestion, sleep quality, fertility, fitness performance, or even emotional regulation!
Because yin intensity is low, Yin Restoration is intended to address your fascia’s health and help you restore equilibrium, even if you’re an active person. In fact, the more active or fast-paced you are, the more I recommend it for you!
Yin Restoration can support those experiencing:
- Chronic, recurring, or nerve pain
- High stress jobs or lifestyles
- High intensity fitness or sports
- Pelvic floor tension
- Hormonal dysfunctions
- Anxiety or depression
- Metabolism issues
- Muscle, fascial tension or inflexibility
- Chronic headaches
- Fight, flight, freeze concerns
- and more!
