This meditative state is known to cultivate a heightened awareness, where practitioners can observe their inner feelings more closely. Along with the mental benefits, blind yoga has also been found to improve physical coordination, agility, and balance.

CONSCIOUS DANCE YOGA
Conscious dance encourages freedom of movement and a deep connection to the body’s sensations. Through conscious dance, practitioners can explore their emotions, release any underlying tension, and create a sense of peace. This practice is particularly beneficial for those dealing with complicated feelings or physical pain, as it can help individuals reconnect with their bodies and find relief from their troubles. Conscious dance yoga can also be a great way to engage in a meaningful and enjoyable physical activity, allowing practitioners to reach a higher level of awareness and find balance in their bodies and minds.
Ecstatic dance differs from other dances in that it’s not about technique or precision; instead, it’s an experience of being present in your body while simultaneously letting go of all expectations around what you should look like dancing. The movements flow naturally from one to another without pause -- they aren’t steps so much as they are motions inspired by your inner state.
Yin Yoga is a style of yoga that focuses on deep stretching of the body’s connective tissues. This type of yoga requires the practitioner to hold poses for anywhere from two to five minutes, allowing them to focus on the sensations in their body and mind and giving them the ability to relax deeply into the pose. This yoga style can increase circulation, flexibility, and mobility while also calming the mind. Not only is Yin Yoga beneficial to the body, but it is also a tool to help one become mindful, more sensitive, and more compassionate.

Not only does this style of yoga provide physical benefits, but it also helps to strengthen social connections and foster an attitude of joy and optimism.
Vinyasa yoga is one of the most popular styles of yoga practiced in Western yoga studios today. A Vinyasa yoga practice connects individual poses or “asanas” with deep breaths or “pranayama” in a series of flowing movement sequences. Vinyasa is often translated as “linking movement with breath,” which refers to the continuous flow of movement throughout the practice. This type of yoga is often considered a more active and dynamic practice, as it can involve faster-paced poses and sequences.
