Yin Yoga is a slow-paced yoga with only 8-12 postures, or asanas, held for 3 - 5 minutes. 

... It targets the deepest tissues of the body, our connective tissues – ligaments, joints, bones, the deep fascia networks of the body, and the meridians. This is in contrast to a Yang yoga practice such as Vinyasa yoga which targets the muscles.

Energetically, Yin yoga improves the energy flow, enhancing the flow of chi in the organs. To be healthy, we need healthy organs as well as healthy muscles. Yin yoga also offers wonderful emotional and mental health benefits.

Four main principles to remember when practicing Yin yoga:
  1. Find an appropriate edge: Move slowly and gently into the pose, and look for an appropriate amount of intensity, never stretch so far as to cause pain.
  2. Stillness: consciously try to release into the pose, and to remain still, without shifting position.
  3. Hold the position: begin by holding for 1-3 minutes gradually progressing to 5 minutes or more.
  4. Come out of the pose gently and slowly
Yindalini Yoga is Kundalini yoga with the complement of Yin Yoga poses. This a perfect practice that creates the ultimate balance to finally heal the body and mind together. 

Kundalini yoga is an ancient art and science where the kundalini lies dormant in the human body. Applying breath work and the will to still help create a neutral state where meditation becomes accessible.


Kundalini yoga is a form of yoga that involves chanting, singing, breathing exercises, and repetitive poses. Its purpose is to activate your Kundalini energy or shakti. This is a spiritual energy that's said to be located at the base of your spine. ... Sometimes, the practice is also called “yoga of awareness.”


Hatha Yoga is a practice with gentle Hatha flow. Ha- Sun Tha - Moon.
There can be a few sun salutations or vinyasa in this practice with only a few steady flows from posture to posture. This will help bring a greater focus on balance, strength, stillness, awareness, and breath.

Trigger Point Myofascial Release with Yin Yoga uses props, like balls and rollers to aid in the massage-type action needed to bring the tissues back to their original state. Learn more below or with Basic TPMR workshops.

Yin Yoga with Trigger Point Release
With Coral-Lei Jane

The most amazing things start when I live my passion. Everything is better by helping myself first... then I can serve others preferably with No pain or resentment. 

Yin Yoga with Trigger Point Myofascial Release™ complements my lifestyle through many years of practicing kinesiology and treating injured clients, including ICBC clients. 

When working with my own trigger points using my hands or props, it's when the TrPs lets go of unnecessary tension that the pain stops.

In a TrP Yin Class, the use of props like balls and rollers can stimulate a message-type action. When the tissue has a trigger point (TrP), let’s just call it a knot, (see the picture below), the issue is it’s already held in a contracted state and thereby can affect other tissues attached to it. The trouble happens when this knot is left untouched or simply not aware of. harm it can create.

                     
                              The image above is a neck muscle called SCM (sternocleidomastoid).
                              A shows no trigger point in this muscle fiber
                              B is a TrP or contracted tissue (a knot)
                              C is the tissue being overstretched leaving a weaker and less flexible muscle

Myofascial release is a type of physical therapy often used to treat myofascial pain syndrome. Myofascial pain syndrome is a chronic pain disorder caused by sensitivity and tightness in your myofascial tissues. The pain usually originates from specific points within your myofascial tissues called “trigger points.” 

Myofascial release focuses on reducing pain by easing the tension and tightness in the trigger points. It’s not always easy to understand what trigger point is responsible for the pain. Localizing pain to a specific trigger point is very difficult. For that reason, myofascial release is often used over a broad area of muscle and tissue rather than at single points.

Besides the massaging action, there is a need to pause on top of the TrP for 10 to 30 seconds. Patience and that mindful breath will help bring greater awareness to actually feel the tissue change shape, like flattening out. It is NOW when the movement continues after the short pause that provides that ‘ironing out’ effect to achieve the final new shape being offered. This process of massaging the area being targeted in class should only take 3-5 minutes. Remember, and please, not to rub the tissue for too long. The goal is releasing what the body is ready for and this may take quite a few sessions. The goal is not to harm the body, and no bruising is allowed! Practice a very important yoga principle called Ahimsa.



To go deep in yin yoga does NOT mean physical. This is not about performance. Depth is to have conscious awareness of how to get in and out of the postures, as well as it is also about what happens in the long holds that creates the actual juiciness everyone is talking about. 

With most postures, there's a yang component as well, which means that there is a muscle action that needs to stabilize and maintain the shape.

This awareness needs to be just as great in the TrP Myofascial Release class. The ultimate goal is to hold this new ideal length of the targeted tissue without it returning to its shortened state. 

Doing a 3-minute gentle stretch means bringing the specific stretch to a mild intensity. On a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being the maximum stretch with no pain, it is proven that anything over a level of 5 can harm the body. This once again is about going slow to not activate a stretch reflex, which is a muscle contraction in response to stretching.

In a nutshell, take your time exploring your body for trigger points with the joy of massaging out your tissues. The best part is that glow after the yoga is done… loving the body and how it feels when it is time to go home. 

Things to remember when practicing yoga...

When you are engaged in yin yoga, this type of practice starts with the stillness of the body. This means that no muscles are activated, ideally, and the long holds in these postures are supposed to bring stillness to the mind. 

Every day is different, so become more accepting of where your mind takes you and stay as still as you can let the muscles relax. The breath connection can help with this, and it will quieten the mind as a result, and perhaps help to feel the sensations you are experiencing.

Note that yoga should never cause sharp pain. It is simply going to the edge of tension, and all this means is to find discomfort in the posture. Remember, if you cannot feel sensation there is nothing happening. (Unless you have congenital insensitivity to pain, CIP, also known as congenital analgesia.) Sometimes losing conscious awareness of your breath can disconnect you from the pose, but not always. Most likely the depth you're after is the connection to body-mind. 


Trigger points can hurt when releasing them, however, the goal actually is to go to a blissful sensation that feels similar to pain. As you develop more self-awareness with the tremendous results through self-massage, life may become easy to manage, and even EMPOWERING.
