Yin Yoga

A Love Note To Yin Yoga

My name is Sue Rodichok. Over 10 years ago, I began to explore the practice of Yin Yoga. As a mom of two daughters, an owner of puppies and an elementary teacher, I found myself always “on the go.” I’ll admit my “ Type A” yang personality and life’s constant quest to learn and experience also kept me moving. However, I never took the time to pause, meditate or reflect.

Yin has offered me the opportunity to slow down, meditate and change my perspective. It’s a slower paced therapeutic type of yoga. The postures are more passive, mainly done on the floor, either seated or lying. This slow soothing style of yoga targets the deep connective tissues, bones, joints, fascia and ligaments in the body. It involves holding poses for longer durations and increasing your awareness. Ultimately, yin is the opposite of Yang Yoga. It offers a balance to my yang practices of: Vinyasa Yoga, hiking, biking and constant movement.

Yin Yoga offers so many benefits including:
● Balancing emotions
● Improving flexibility
● Stretching connective tissue
● Boosting circulation
● Improving sleep
● Enhancing mental focus
● Promoting relaxation
● Developing breath awareness

With all these benefits, yin became a regular practice in my week. Ironically, in slowing down, I found myself more productive, calmer, and happier. I’m certified to teach Kids Yoga and Mindfulness, Vinyasa Yoga, Standup Paddleboard Yoga, Yin Yoga, Restorative Yoga, and Yoga Nidra. As you can see, I love to explore various styles of yoga. Teaching yin, however, has been a gift. It brings me great joy to see a person unwind and let go. Meet me on the mat and see what it’s all about!
