about yin yoga
Yin yoga is partly derived from ancient Taoism which is a philosophy that unearths the pathway to universal harmony. The word Tao itself means 'path' or 'the way.' In many ways, Yin yoga is a path to rebalancing our inner nature. Through its practice, we find the opportunity to slow down from the fast and continual pace of the western world. We enter stillness.
We focus on quieting our minds and our bodies. In doing so we become in tune with the innate wisdom that surrounds us and uncovers insights from deep within ourselves. These gifts arise through a journey of practice and commitment which transforms our bodies and minds over time. Through stillness, we can gain awareness of our bodies, our breath, our thoughts, emotions, our relationship with ourselves and our relationships with others.
Another gift from a Yin practice is that we learn to relax deeply and surrender to what is instead of fighting against it. Through this surrender, we learn to flow with our surroundings like tall grass in the wind. We go from scattered to stillness and slow down from the chase of life to find joy "in the moment".
As Yin yoga becomes more prevalent, we see that the West is finally taking notice of this ancient wisdom first bestowed on us thousands of years ago. It is a practice of healing ourselves deeply and coming back to our true natures - of wellness, vitality, and health.
In a world that is busier than ever, yin provides a path to healing.
Key Aspects Of Yin Yoga -

The muscles should not be engaged during yin yoga postures
Yin yoga comes from the concept of 'Yin and Yang' which highlights the balance that two opposing forces have with each other.
Yin yoga postures are handled differently than other forms of yoga, which is why their names differ from similar-looking postures in other forms of yoga.
