Zensicily is a project promoted by the organic Agriturismo Case Don Ignazio, thanks to the extraordinary desire of a family to lead you into nature for a holiday of yoga, wellness, organic food, culture, and exploration of the territory.

Case Don Ignazio is a beautiful typical Sicilian house of the 19th century, the perfect place to live in direct contact with nature, its sounds, and rhythms that accompany the succession of seasons, in an atmosphere of sharing and deep respect for the beauty around.

Overview

It is commonly referred to as a passive practice as opposed to all other styles of yoga that are considered active (Hatha, Ashtanga Vinyasa, Power, etc). This definition stems from the specific way of exercising the body without the engagement of muscles but instead using the weight of the body and the force of gravity to passively stimulate specific tissues and components of the body. These tissues are typically the joints, ligaments, fascia, and bones. The positions are performed on the floor for an extended period of time (initially 2 to 5 minutes).

This allows you to apply some pressure to specific target areas and thus consciously stress the tissues mentioned above. The benefits of practicing Yin yoga, both physically and mentally, are numerous and profound. One of the main reasons the positions are held for long periods of time is to improve the flow of chi – life energy – through the entire body. According to Chinese meridian theory, the activation of chi will nourish and restore the internal organs and tissues involved in each position performed during practice. Yin practice also allows for deep work on the myofascial complex.

When we touch the fascia during yogic practice, many contractions, blockages, and emotions can finally be released. Therefore, the nervous system will also be detoxified. The mind also benefits immensely from this practice. The slow pace of Yin yoga gradually brings a mindful and fearless practitioner into a meditative state of mind. This is an exceptional time for exploration, observation, realization, and ultimately, a transformation of the Self.

It is the time when we encounter physical discomfort, pain, thoughts, and emotions. The beauty and magic of Yin yoga are in allowing you to move beyond these obstacles and feel more grounded, calm, and peaceful at the end of the practice. Yin yoga is an elevated practice that anyone can experience and explore with appropriate guidance. The morning practice will be dynamic to bring energy and vigor, while in the evening you will use softer and more restorative practices. This alternation will help rebalance the physiological rhythm of the body and mind.
