When teaching Yin, I introduce alot of mindfulness and breath meditation througout the practice. I keep reminding students to stay with the breath throughout the entire practice, allowing them to stay present in the now, which allows them to switch off their busy minds and find stilness within, while they simultaniously excersise their connective tissues, ligaments and joints. I motivate students to let go of their egos and invite the attitude “less is more”. Thanks to the teachings of Paul Grilley (studied with Jo Phee) my understanding for skeletel bone variation has trimendously helped me to finaly understand the true meaning of “proper alignment” so I am now able to guide my students into a safe yoga practice.
