Most forms of yoga today are dynamic, active practices designed to work mainly the muscular body or the Yang tissue. Yin yoga, on the other hand, allows us to address the other half, the deeper, Yin tissue of our ligaments, joints and our fascia network.

What Yin yoga is about:

  • Maintain and expand flexibility and mobility, rejuvenate the body
  • Apply mindfulness principles in your practice and create peace in our mind
  • Harmonize body, mind, and soul through the Taoist wisdom of the Chi and the Meridian flow in the poses

  • Come into the pose to an appropriate depth
  • Resolve to remain still
  • Hold the pose for time (3 to 5 minutes on average)
