Yin is a perfect compliment to the more active styles of Yoga, because of its passive and slow-paced nature. The Yin poses involve sitting or laying down. They focus on the connective tissue, ligaments, bones, and joints in the pelvis, hips, and lower spine. These Yin postures allow one to access the deeper parts of the body and to regulate the energy flow in the body. Yin Yoga has been known to increase mobility, lower anxiety and stress levels, and to provide the body deep nourishment and relaxation that it truly deserves. The practice of Yin teaches stillness, surrender, and acceptance, which are valuable qualities to develop in today’s fast moving world.
