Speaker 1: (01:48)
So I’m gonna just dive right in. Talk about all the good things about yin yoga. First of all, yes, like I said, if you have gone through any sort of trauma abuse, you literally are holding all of this in your body. When I discovered yin yoga, the first time I did it, I was in supported bridge pose. I will, I will let you imagine this. Christy’s laying there circa 2020, I think, laying on my back knees up, and then you put like a yoga block under as my yoga teacher, Syd, between the, your crack and your back, right? That little lower back area. And if you don’t know about chakras, this is where the sacral is. And there’s a lot of, especially for women, a lot of stuff and energy that sits in there. And something about me popping that Sugi up released so much in that moment that I started crying.

Speaker 1: (02:41)
I’m not saying you’re gonna have this the first time. I’m not. I don’t know if you’ll cry ever, okay? But it was an amazing moment and I fell in love with yin yoga, and I have not looked back. I actually got certified to teach it. So I am a yin yoga teacher. If you want to do a customized personal session with me, I will put in the notes, my email. Everything’s always in the show notes, like that’s the description of the podcast. So always go there after the show if you’re trying to find any information, if you’re trying to stalk me and find me. But you can just email me and we can talk about setting up a customized session. But let’s talk about the amazing benefits. So what I experience, like I said, I mean that that first time I was like, whew, what just happened?

Speaker 1: (03:22)
What just happened to me? But we hold this energy. So first of all, talk about the energetics. And that’s the biggest impact on me, is how I’m, I’m very mindd in touch with my body and everybody’s different. But if you are too, and you can relate to that, like if your body’s not okay, your mind’s not okay. If your mind is not okay, your body’s not okay. I am telling you, you will fall in love with this. You have to give it a chance. It’s different from regular yoga in that you hold the poses usually from like three to five minutes. I usually do five because I really want you to sit in there and let go in your poses and let that energy work its way out. And also physically you’re stretching the fasha and those deeper tissues that not all yogas or any of the like, you know, CrossFit, all that stuff doesn’t really get into those little nooks and crannies.

Speaker 1: (04:15)
So with yin yoga, you’re also getting into a space physically that’s deeper and such a nice release, especially over time. This is a practice that, yes, in your first session you can definitely have benefits, but man, if you put this into your daily practice, your weekly practice, you will feel like a different person. So there’s the energetics of letting go and maintaining, letting go because you know, life is never always bunnies and flowers. Wouldn’t that be fun? But it’s not. So even if we’re releasing, there’s always more stuff coming in, right? Like that’s just part of life. It ebbs, it flows ups and downs. So you’re getting to release on a regular basis these negative energies that live in your body, right? The other thing is obviously the mind letting go of the stress in a mind way, right? Like having a carved out hour a week.

Speaker 1: (05:10)
Or if you are bold doing it an hour a day and then you’re gonna be like a superhuman because the quiet you get, it’s similar to meditation, but you’re also doing this physical aspect where you’re physically releasing and mentally quieting and releasing, letting things process in your mind. So it’s just like this double whammy . If you do meditation, you’ll understand how meditation can be so epic. Add in your yoga. It is crazy. Again, especially if you keep this ongoing practice, there’s also something to be said that’s, that’s different than typical yoga where you may hold up poses and balance. And in yin yoga, I, I always call it my gravity yoga, like I just feel like I’m letting go. And like surrendering to gravity, I’m melting. I used to call my, my class melt, melt into the mat because it’s different in the way I do most of my poses, like laying down or sitting and you really get to release fully.

Speaker 1: (06:10)
And when you release physically fully, again, there’s some shift. And I think that was part of it for me in that first session. I’m always going, going, going. And even with my exercising, I love dance. Like hip hop. I’m a hip hop dancer. Did you not know that about me? Um, so I’m always, it’s just like action and going, you know, I stop and meditation. But to sit there and let my whole body totally melt into the floor while doing these poses that are literally releasing negative energy at the same time, it was such a release that those tears were joy. It was like, oh my, almost like bliss. You’re just like, whoa. Like if you imagine you’re in like a really happy epic dream, it’s like that kind of feeling. It was just amazing. I will say the key to that is, and I’m surprised I got it the first time since sometimes I can fight myself when it’s like time to relax, I will kind of like, I’m like a little toddler there where I’m like, I have this to do with like, my brain goes a mile a minute.

Speaker 1: (07:15)
For some reason in that first class I just fully surrendered to like, I’m taking this time for me because I need, like, I needed it. I was so overworked. It was during the pandemic, I was homeschooling my daughter, trying to run a business, being a wife and friend and all the things. And I was like, I need to like escape, right? , hey, it is what it is. But I escaped into something very healthy and healing and it, it set me on this amazing, amazing path. But that’s why I wanna share it with you because not, I feel like not enough people know about yin yoga or do yin yoga. It, it’s just something you need to try to understand and you have to give it a chance. And this is my whole thing right here that I’m trying to say is release surrender to it.

Speaker 1: (08:04)
Where you say, I’m not gonna let anything else disrupt this time. I’m going to fully surrender and let go emotionally and physically. Now if you are a victim of narcissistic abuse, my podcast brought you here, maybe , um, or you’re a client of mine, you’ve gone through abuse, you’ve gone through trauma. This is such a precious tool to use to release that. And it also is proven that in general yoga shows, they’ve done studies where your calm and your confidence is definitely higher. I’m trying to think, do I have the percentage here? Lemme see if I can find it real quick. Mm. It doesn’t say the percentage of what I’m looking at right now when I just try to look it up real quick. But there have been several articles I have seen on the effect on the self-esteem because that’s something when you go through, through narcissistic abuse, your self-esteem can be shot.

Speaker 1: (08:58)
And this is something that actually immediately through a yoga class will heighten your self-esteem. Like it’s crazy, right? So over time, imagine what that does. Yes, it’s great to do talk therapy, it’s great to work with a coach like me. It’s great to set boundaries in your life, but having this physical supplement is just like, boom, watch out, here comes the queen. So those are my own little benefits. My experience with it that I just, again, I can’t say how much I love it. I’m gonna tell you like generic things they say about yin yoga in general, that calms and balances the mind and body reduce, reduces stress and anxiety, increases circulation, which is always good, improves flexibility. Get down in f fascia and releases fascia and improves joint mobility. So especially, I’m 43, y’all, I’m gonna be 43. Well when am I posting this?

Speaker 1: (09:49)
Thursday. So tomorrow April 21st I’m gonna be 43. Come say happy birthday. Cuz for the first time in my life I’m actually feeling older. Like usually I’m like, woo, yeah, I wanna celebrate this here. It’s hitting me. I don’t know, it might be that little like the deeper wrinkle, crawling, crawling outta my bottom lip. I don’t like it, what’s happening anyway, but I have all these fun tools to make me feel better. , maybe I’ll go do some yoga, get that silver esteem bag. Okay. And then the last thing balances the internal organs, which hey, I’ll always take a balanced spleen and kidney and improves the flow of chi or prana, which is kind of your, you know, the balance of your body. So it’s improving the flow of that, helping everything flow to together better and act as the well oiled machine our bodies are supposed to be.

Speaker 1: (10:37)
Can you do yin yoga every day? Yes you can. And this isn’t something you have to do for an hour or even 45 minutes with my clients. I actually give them poses and sequences so they can choose. They might take one pose they might wanna do every morning that takes literally three minutes, right? But just to get that release. To start off the day, I’m big on starting your mornings with a little yoga or some sort of stretching, some sort of movement in your body. And also meditation, prayer, whatever is your jam. Like those, if you can take two things away, wake up the extra five or 10 minutes to do those things. And that really will set your day up. And the longer you do the better. And if you do yoga, I mean yoga at night, like yin yoga is great. I used to have uh, my nighttime classes where it was like Sunday nights, we had it kind of right before bed.

Speaker 1: (11:31)
So you’re off to a great start. You, you can get very comfy and sleepy in yoga cuz it’s such a relaxing melty yoga. So it’s really good for any time of day. You can use it in the morning to start and kind of get energized. And there is specific, again, I would give you specific customized sequences if you are a client, client of mine or you can, you know, use certain sequences before you go to sleep. I will link my YouTube video of a class from last year that was about releasing negative energy. And I’m gonna ask this in my Facebook group. By the way, if you’re not my Facebook group, I’m going to link that also in the notes. Go join. I’m starting to do little mini videos in there and it’s gonna be a whole lot of fun. So go join. But I wanna ask in the group and you guys, you can email me or if you’re in the group, message me there.

Speaker 1: (12:25)
Um, maybe I’ll do a poll, but I wanna know if you’d be interested in like a mini course that shows you what yin yoga poses are beneficial for trauma slash negative energy release. Um, if you’d be interested in more of my yin yoga, like I said, I have that class, I will link below. It’s free, you just watch it whenever it’s 45 minutes. But I’m thinking about creating one that would be separate from my YouTube. That would be just like a very low cost video with sequencing to release, like really trauma related things. And so just trying to gauge the interest on that. So message me, hit me up. I’m on Instagram, I’m fierce Christy Jade over there. Um, so come follow me. Say hi. I love when people actually drop into my dms and say hello. I like to know who’s following. Um, so don’t be shy.

Speaker 1: (13:20)
Anyway, I hope this was beneficial. I encourage you to at least try my yin yoga class. See how you feel. Um, it’s, it’s amazing and epic. And sometimes you won’t have like the release I did in the first one. It also depends on your openness, your tired level. So I encourage you also to definitely try it more than once. Slow was not always my jam. And it’s become like that balance, that yin and yang of like me hip hop dancing all over and then the next minute laying on the floor like Gumby. It’s a good balance. So I highly suggest it. All right, I will see you in the next episode. And don’t forget, you deserve to feel good. You deserve to carve out time for yourself to let your body and your mind rest. And you are a gorgeous queen. Isn’t that amazing? You’re so lucky. Okay, love you guys. See you in the next step. And Smooches induces.

I would love to help you. Also, don’t forget to look in the show notes, a k a, the description of this podcast for any related links that I mention and more Christy Jade, fun.
