Born out of Taoist Buddhism, Yin Yoga applies the concepts of Chinese acupressure to the body’s dense connective tissues. This practice includes long held postures that gently ease the tightness, stiffness and inflexibility in the soft tissues and joints that can occur from repetitive movement.
Yin has the added benefit of opening meridians and increasing the efficiency of energy flow throughout the body. It is seen as a balancing and complementary practice to more Yang forms of exercise (Vinyasa, running, cross training, etc.).
