Yin & Yang Yoga
Most forms of yoga today are dynamic, active practices designed to work only half of our body, the muscular half, the "yang" tissues. Yin yoga allows us to work the other half, the deeper "yin" tissues of our ligaments, joints, deep fascial networks, and even our bones. All our tissues are important and need to be exercised so that we can achieve optimal health and vitality.
Yin and Yang are relative terms: they describe the two facets of existence. Like two sides of one coin, Yin cannot exist without yang, nor yang without yin. They complement each other.
Yin and Yang blend two styles of yoga into one practice - bringing together the benefits of passively holding yoga poses with more dynamic sequences and standing postures.
"The practice of Yin / Yang Yoga helps us to learn about stillness in the movement and the flow in stillness." - Sarah Powers
