In our fast paced lifestyles we can all do with some more stillness. Yin Yoga gives us the opportunity to slow down, connect deeper within, and nourish our bodies, minds, and souls.
Yin Yoga is a slow, passive and meditative style. The practice calls for long-held stretches targeting the deeper connective tissue, such as the fascia, tendons, and ligaments. More dynamic styles of yoga do not stretch these tissues, so it’s common for us to have tightness there.
Yin Yoga is closely linked to Traditional Chinese medicine, making it a truly holistic practice that connects us with our lifeforce (chi). The postures target particular meridian pathways, which can help to release physical tension and improve how you feel mentally and emotionally.
Moreover, the practice of Yin Yoga calls for slow, deep breathing, which calms the nervous system, stimulating the “relaxation response”. This makes Yin Yoga an antidote to stress and anxiety.
Giving your body and mind exactly what it needs
The Yin Yoga Deck is a beautiful work of art consisting of 68 cards. The 3 categories of warm-up, poses, and restore cards will help you to create yin yoga sequences and cultivate a more mindful practice where you can disconnect from everything.
On the top of each card we added which chakra the pose activates. For each pose, you can find highlighted, the chakras involved. This way, you can easily create sequences based on a specific chakra theme, or discover a deeper understanding of each pose on an energetic level.
In addition, we have included 7 bonus chakra cards. Each illustrated card features a description and affirmation of that particular chakra. Plus, in the manual, you will find a complete explanation of each chakra, providing you with the knowledge you need to work with this energetic system.
On the back of each asana card, you will find indications of the meridians. The ones that are relevant for the card at hand are highlighted. This way you can also create a practice according to your health goals.
Aside from the indications on each card, we have included 1 illustrated bonus card that shows all the meridians and their pathways. Use this card together with the full explanations inside the Manual for a better understanding of these energy channels.
The PlayPauseBe yoga decks help you create a regular practice that unleashes your spirit in a distraction-free environment, where you can forget about your digital devices for a while.
Feel free to practice whenever and wherever you want: at home, in nature, or in your favorite spot, and enjoy the beauty of the present moment.
The PlayPauseBe cards are made in Europe with the highest quality, sustainable materials available. Our Eco factory is powered by solar energy, uses rainwater in sanitary installations, and recycles all production waste. Our goal is to make sure that we do not grow at the expense of our planet and its climate.
The PlayPauseBe Yin yoga deck will help you create a self practice where you deepen connection to your breath and your body. As you mindfully hold the stretches, you’ll feel tension easing in your body and mind.
What’s more, as Yin Yoga targets the deeper connective tissue, you’ll find your overall flexibility and mobility improving, allowing you to uplevel your practice in other yoga styles too.
A regular yoga practice brings life-changing benefits to your body, mind and soul. However, in this fast-paced society that asks us to be connected 24/7, it’s often challenging to switch off and go within (even while doing yoga!).
This is why we created the PlayPauseBe Yoga deck. Whether you’re a beginner, an advanced yogi, or a yoga teacher, these revolutionary deck cards will help you practice with zero distractions and build sequences easily with confidence and inspiration.
