Yin yoga is an incredibly healing form of yoga that is accessible to everyone. This style encompasses the subtler aspects of yoga, and focuses on taking advantage of the potential to do deep and healing work in the tissues, fascia, and even bones while the body is still fresh from sleep. Yin yoga takes a Daoist approach to the ancient Indian roots of asana and meditation. This is a potent blend of philosophy and practice and has powerfully balancing effects on the busy modern life so many of us live in.
Beginning your yin yoga journey with experienced private instruction allows the healing nature of the practice to sink in more deeply. Because each pose requires complete surrender for ultimate benefit, having the one on one nurturing guidance of a teacher allows you to just focus on the sensations of body and breath, versus posture and time.
Stilling the mind, quieting the body, and delving into the deeper aspects of an authentic yoga practice requires yin. Begin your yin journey today!
