Yin yoga is a land in which we come down through our breath. When we decide to move there we need to withdraw our senses, we need to stop for a while the connection with the external world, we need to quiet the jumping monkey inside our mind. All our will is needed, all our patience, all our sense of surrending, and maybe sometimes this is not enough to bring peace inside of us. To enjoy a real stillness we have to face our tensions, we have to give them a shape, we have to give them time to manifest, feeling them coming up from our deepest tissues and flowing out, maybe like salty tears drop, through the eyes. To heal we have to feel and recognize first.
The effort seems to be pretty hard, but the reward is so precious that it would be a shame not to try. It’s like an open door “yinside” yourself, bringing you at the very centre of nowhere: the land where expansion happens. The land where you can hear the sound of the universe. That is the promise.
