Examine Yin Yoga poses in depth, including their benefits and contraindications, history & philosophy. Explore this subtle practice as a complement to more dynamic and active movement. In Yin Yoga, floor postures are held passively for several minutes to activate safe and positive stress on the deep layers of connective tissue in the body. Physically, Yin Yoga restores and maintains the natural mobility of the joints, while enhancing the body’s energetic flow. Emphasizing stillness and reflection, the practice of Yin Yoga prepares the body and the mind for dharana (concentration), dhyana (contemplation), and samadhi (unity).
