Yin Yoga Podcast

Benevolent Attention

This is one of those practices that you just crave. You’ll spend the whole hour on your back enjoying delicious somatic movements and simple Yin poses. Throughout your practice I will be encouraging you to tap into subtle experiences of self. Your efforts will culminate in a meta awareness that feels so good and right. This practice is so valuable if you are someone who suffers with chronic pain. Often when we hurt, it can be hard to access our painful areas with the benevolent attention that mindfulness cultivates. This practice will gently encourage you to bring all parts of you back into the field of awareness. Science shows that this can actually help you recover from chronic pain.
