Many are familiar with the yin and yang symbol. Diving deeper into these two opposing concepts uncovers their individual meanings. Yang represents the active and changing whereas yin represents the stable and passive. Most yoga falls under the yang category; a constant flow of dynamic movements. However where there is a yang there must be a yin, and yoga is no exception. Yin Yoga is defined by single poses held for minutes at a time.
Yin Yoga focuses on connective tissue in the body, such as ligaments and tendons, which responds better to gentle stress over a long period of time as opposed to shorter, intense working. This mild, persistent stimulation helps improve long-term health and flexibility of the joints, recharge energy, and draw the mind inward into a relaxed, meditative state. A Yin Yoga DVD hosted by one of the style’s master teachers will truly help you find deep understanding and appreciation of this unique practice.

At Pranamaya, we have two of the foremostexperts in Yin Yoga on hand. Sarah Powers and Paul Grilley teach Yin Yoga as an equally important supplement to other forms and styles. Paul literally wrote the book on Yin Yoga. The 10th anniversary edition of Yin Yoga: Principles and Practice, available through Pranamaya, is an updated version of the original which introduced Yin Yoga as an integrated practice. As a colleague of Paul’s, Sarah continued the teachings of Yin Yoga as an important, supplemental style.
