The Complete Guide to Yin Yoga: The Philosophy and Practice of Yin Yoga
Yoga in all its forms can provide benefits physically, emotionally, and mentally, but Yin Yoga can benefit our deeper levels of the body/heart/mind: it helps to connect the tissues of the ligaments, fascia, joints and bones and the energetic channels of the meridians, nerves and blood system. Its long held passive nature of the posture is the difference that is noticed by most of the Yin Yoga practicing people. Which in turn gives time for a deeper journey to unfold, a journey into the meditative aspects of yoga, a bridge to living life mindfully. The author presents comprehensive information on how to do the practice, including a deep look inside over two dozen Yin Yoga postures showing the benefit of the pose, how to get into and out of the pose, contraindications and warnings for those who may have trouble with particular aspects of the posture, and other important information. The benefits are physiological, energetic benefits and the mental/emotional. These are explored in detail. It has 30 Yin Yoga Asanas with descriptions.
