Find power in stillness and detach from your daily stress and worries. The yin practice of passive poses is designed to release the connected tissue for you to achieve more balance and depth in both yoga and life. Sometimes your asana practice may seem more focused on achievement and attainment than on gaining inner harmony and peace. The Yin practice incorporates complimentary aspects of toning and flexibility. The art of holding poses for several minutes is a great way to tap into the depths of your strength. This gives you the time to experience both the mind and body’s reaction to each posture. Holding postures also allows you to explore ways to achieve greater harmony in your body and feel more at ease when you sit for meditation.
