This is the perfect example of the use of yoga blocks during a Yin Yoga Stretch session while holding a shoelace pose or variation of a shoelace pose. Finding your threshold in any stretch, just the right amount of resistance, and than closing the eyes and finding stillness and silence will allow you the ability to release tension and stress while delving within yourself to allow the body to heal and lengthen.
Vinyasa & Hatha yoga flow are yoga poses that are held through several breaths. Vinyasa Flow is a fast paced flow, while Hatha yoga flow is slower. Both forms of yoga encourages breath to body movement and brings greater focus to the mind through the breath.
Balance poses offer both physical and mental benefits. Physically, we strengthen and elongate the muscles, in order to get to know our center of gravity and how to align ourselves. Balancing improves the function of the equilibrium receptors in the body, and contributes to learning the importance of yoga through the principle of rooting down.
