The Yin & the Yang are opposite forces. Yet, they exist together in the harmony of a perfect orb.- R.A. Wise

KRIYA is ready to facilitate an outdoor yoga class dedicated to the courageous firefighters, and all your donations will be given to the Salvation Army. Salvation Army offers a range of services and assistance measures to help people who have been impacted by recent bushfires including financial assistance, emotional well being, and support services.

It was also a joy for firefighters jumping for joy when there was a downpour of rain that drenched NSW bushfire zone. The Leongatha Fire Brigade shared the touching video of their volunteer crew laughing and dancing gleefully with locals in Rolland Plains, around 40 kilometers from Port Macquarie, as they huddled for shelter.

This is our crew in Rollands Plains in NSW at the moment with some very happy locals who have been on edge for over a month. This local has also been helping cook meals for all the Fire Fighters and locals that have been forced from thier homes for the past 2 week.

All these bushfire fighters are doing their best to control the situation and are supportive to the community-saving lives of both humans and animals. This is also a type of yoga or sadhana of being dedicated to their services. It is the biggest kind of yoga above all classes and studio lessons which shows the power of giving to one and all, raising donations for firefighters or those who are affected by the calamity.

As Yin Yang Yoga blends two styles of yoga, by bringing together benefits of passively holding yoga poses with more dynamic sequences and standing positions. This type of yoga based on the Chinese Taoist concept thus describes two relative qualities present in everything. Yin being your internal and Yang being external strength to your mind body and soul which I believe is much powerful in these firefighters.

Yin Yang Yoga Class

As KRIYA presents yoga by the harbor; a donation-based yin yang yoga class, for the attendees or newbies, remember that this type of yoga works on two principles: the yin and the yang. This means that according to the Chinese dualistic cosmology yin and yang together produce everything that comes into existence. Also, the interaction of yin and yang maintains the harmony of the universe.

Yin: The dark negative feminine principle in Chinese dualistic cosmology

Yang: The bright positive masculine principle in Chinese dualistic cosmology

In Yin Yang yoga class Yin yoga is a slower practice where yoga asanas or poses are passively held for the longer duration working deeply on the connective tissues and joints in the body. Whereas the yang is a more active yoga class that works on your muscles and blood flow to strengthen your stamina and giving you flexibility. Also, yang yoga poses are rhythmic and are repeated as in the Vinyasa yoga class.

As both Yin and Yang are necessary to maintain balance in our body thus any yoga teacher will try to include one or two yon yoga pose along with yang yoga session in its sequence or class.

As both yin and yang elements are needed for balance in body mind and soul, the yin yoga stimulates the energy channels or chakras bringing balance to the organs in the body, thereby improving flexibility in joints. Also, yin yoga poses calms the mind relieving you of stress and anxiety. Yang yoga on the hand will increase your stamina as it tones the body because of improved circulation of blood flow in the body it also calms your mind.

In a Yin Yang yoga class, you will find that a yoga teacher might start with Yin yoga to calm the mind and work on the joints before the muscles are warm or the class may start with Yang and end with longer held poses to relax and calm the nervous system. The sequencing of the class can have a powerful effect on your energy levels and how you feel after class.

Yin Yang yoga sequence

A Yin Yang class can be of 30-minute or more depending on yoga teacher or yoga studio. The yang practice consists primarily of a flowing sequence of standing postures, much like an extended Sun Salutation, though it includes graceful movements adapted from Taoist Yoga. The hour-long yin sequence is performed almost entirely reclining or sitting, for the most part, draped over a bolster.

Generally, Yang yoga is what many think of as Hatha and Ashtanga yoga asanas and Vinyasas that warm the body and stretch and strengthen the muscles. Yin/Yang yoga typically includes the yang portion of practice in the second half of class.
