AcuYin integrates two holistic practices of both Acupressure & Yin Yoga. The idea is when you combine these two methods, it will enhance the benefits of our ‘target area’ within a Yin yoga pose.
In Acupressure, disease is understood as an imbalance in our vital energetic system, known as Chi, also described by other traditions as Prana, Qi or Ki. We can show physical &/or emotional symptoms of imbalance caused through blockages within our Chi flow, & the connectivity with our internal organs & health.
The pathways through which this energy flows within Chinese medicine are called Meridians, & the points through which this energy can be manipulated, are called Acupoints.
Our Yin practice involve holding positions for extended periods that stress & renew the deep, dense connective tissues, or fascia. The method includes using many variations within the postures so we are able to fully relax into the target area.
A target area is the part of the body that we are intending to influence by performing specific Yin yoga postures.
The aim is to simulate into the Sinew channels & deeper Meridian lines by using an appropriate level of both time held & stress into the interconnected fascia system.
Within AcuYin, pressure can be applied by the fingers on certain Acupoints whilst we hold a Yin yoga shape. This can enhance the effectiveness of our target, releasing both tension & stagnant energy that can be held within the body. This can promote the energy to flow more freely & therefore also encourage the alleviation of any physical &/or emotional symptoms of imbalance.
