Yin Yoga is a slow-paced, introspective style of yoga that focuses on long-held, passive poses designed to target the connective tissues of the body—such as the ligaments, fascia, and joints—rather than the muscles. It provides a unique and meditative approach to stretching and nourishing the body.

Key Principles:

  1. Long Holds:
    • Poses are held for an extended period, typically ranging from 3 to 5 minutes or even longer.
    • The extended duration allows for a deep release in the connective tissues.
  2. Floor-Based Postures:
    • Most poses are performed seated or lying down, often supported by props like bolsters and blocks.
    • This enables practitioners to relax into the pose without engaging the muscles actively.
  3. Mindful Breathing:
    • Emphasis on steady and mindful breath awareness throughout the practice.
    • Deep diaphragmatic breathing helps facilitate relaxation and surrender.
  4. Stillness and Surrender:
    • Yin Yoga encourages surrendering into each posture, embracing stillness both physically and mentally.
    • The goal is not to push or force but to allow the body to naturally open over time.


  1. Improved Flexibility:
    • Targeting connective tissues enhances joint mobility and flexibility over time.
    • Poses gently stress these tissues, promoting a gradual increase in range of motion.
  2. Stress Relief and Relaxation:
    • Yin Yoga induces a parasympathetic nervous system response, promoting relaxation.
    • It can be a powerful tool for stress reduction and cultivating a calm mind.
  3. Balancing Energy Flow:
    • Based on Traditional Chinese Medicine principles, Yin Yoga aims to balance the body's energy flow through meridian stimulation.
    • Poses are associated with specific meridians, influencing the flow of energy or "qi."
  4. Joint Health:
    • By targeting joints, Yin Yoga supports joint health and can alleviate stiffness.
    • It complements more dynamic forms of yoga that primarily focus on muscle engagement.
  5. Mindfulness and Meditation:
    • The meditative quality of Yin Yoga encourages mindfulness and self-reflection.
    • Practitioners often find a sense of mental clarity and tranquility.


  1. Patience and Acceptance:
    • Practitioners are encouraged to embrace patience and acceptance during longer holds.
    • The practice is about surrendering to the present moment.
  2. Individualized Approach:
    • Yin Yoga is adaptable to various levels, but individuals with certain injuries or conditions should communicate with the instructor for modifications.
  3. Post-Practice Sensation:
    • It's common to experience sensations in the body after a Yin session. Practitioners are advised to observe and understand these sensations without judgment.

Conclusion: Yin Yoga offers a rejuvenating and contemplative practice, providing a counterbalance to more dynamic forms of yoga. It's an invitation to slow down, release tension, and explore the depths of both the body and the mind.

Yin Yoga Teachers


Exploring Harmony through Yin Yoga

Yiselle, a practitioner and teacher of Yin Yoga, brings a unique blend of academic prowess and holistic understanding to her yoga journey. A graduate in industrial engineering with a master's degree in finance from Monterrey TEC, her exploration of the mind-body connection began in 2010 through the study of body therapies. This early exploration ignited her curiosity about the intricate relationship between emotions and the physical body.

In 2013, Yiselle delved into the transformative practice of yoga. Her dedication led her to a 200-hour Vinyasa Yoga certification endorsed by Yoga Alliance. Eager to deepen her understanding, she pursued a 300-hour Advanced Hatha Yoga Program for teachers in Monterrey, expanding her knowledge and teaching skills.

Yiselle's yoga odyssey continued as she embraced the contemplative practice of Yin Yoga in Guadalajara. Since 2016, she has discovered a profound sense of balance, stability, and introspective answers through her ongoing exploration of Ashtanga yoga. With eight years of intermittent teaching experience in Vinyasa yoga, she currently imparts the wisdom of Yin Yoga at Yoga Point.

Her commitment to growth and learning led her to undertake the traditional Ashtanga program and engage in study sessions at dotyoga. This dedicated immersion solidified her practice, aligning seamlessly with the lifestyle principles inherent in Ashtanga. Yiselle's priority remains that of a perpetual student and practitioner, continually seeking knowledge to contribute authentically to her community.

In a recent chapter of her yoga journey, Yiselle ventured to Mysore, India, where she practiced at the Sharath Yoga Centre under the guidance of Sharath Jois. This transformative experience further enriched her understanding of yoga and reinforced her dedication to sharing its profound benefits.

Yiselle's teaching philosophy embodies the essence of harmony, inviting students to explore the interplay of body, mind, and spirit through the gentle yet powerful practice of Yin Yoga. Her journey reflects a commitment to self-discovery and a passion for sharing the transformative potential of yoga with her community.

Years of experience support us, and we take pride in the fact that many of our teachers and attendees have been trained in Ashtanga here at our studio. This, in essence, ensures that our teaching is consistent and well-directed toward the correct method.

We also emphasize that we have a very specific teaching style aligned with the tradition of Ashtanga as taught in India, the birthplace where this method was systematized. Considering ourselves pioneers of this practice in the city is a blessing, and it is a great responsibility and commitment on our part to continue instilling the path of yoga, which brings numerous benefits to our physical and biological bodies, minds, moods, and spirits.
