Yin aspects of Yoga focus on the deeper, denser tissues of the body ~ the joints, bones and connective tissues. Poses are held for longer periods with mindful awareness of the sensations and thoughts which arise.
Yang aspects of Yoga incorporate rhythm and repetition with dynamic and strengthening poses. Yangbuilds our strength and bone density.
Yin/Yang represents opposite or contrary forces which are actually complementary & interconnected. A Yin/Yang practice combines passive and active poses into a very deep, integrated and balancing practice.
