The Benefits of Yin and Restorative Yoga

Doctors and medical professionals all agree on the fact that most of us are not really leading physically active lives as much in this day and age. On the other hand, it is common knowledge that Yoga is a proven method capable of improving one’s physical and psychological health. So, where can you start your Yoga thailand journey? If you are wondering what the right yoga method for you is, our Master Yogi at Orion Healing Centre, one of the pioneers of eco-friendly yoga, reiki and detox thailand retreat program centres in Thailand has some good advice for you.


“It’s always hard to start without anyone to at least walk you through the basics. Plus, signing up for any new activity can be a cause of anxiety for some people and yes, that includes Yoga.” Says Daliah, the co-founder of Orion Healing Centre.


“What I recommend is that people go for a Yoga retreat or studio that focuses on both the experience as well as the practice itself. Somewhere that leaves us with a sweet memory and valuable knowledge to go back to when we are overwhelmed by our daily lives. A reliable refuge and not a responsibility that we force ourselves into. ” She adds, “ It always starts with honesty to oneself. Where are we physically and psychologically? If you are not physically active on a daily basis or you are dealing with certain medical conditions or physical trauma, Restorative/Yin Yoga would be a great stepping stone to begin your journey.”

Daliah continues by explaining what Yin and restorative Yoga means: “ This form of Yoga is both meditative and physical. It focuses on putting controlled pressure on various parts of the body through maintaining certain poses for a certain period of time in order to aid with muscle relaxation. It uses the healing power of gravity so the main tissues, especially the spine and hip area gain more flexibility and length which results in a proper flow of Prana or Chi energy.”


She further explains “ Yin and Restorative yoga provides us with the opportunity to allow suppressed thoughts, feelings and emotions blocking our meridian channels and chakras to surface and at the same time, inspires to understand them and not let them entangle us. Keeping them suppressed will drain your physical and mental energies which puts the body under tremendous pressure. Letting go of all these negativities and releasing them creates a considerable positive impact.”
