Work on your stretching technique with this Yin Yoga class by Travis Eliot. A 40minute, Level 1 class that keeps you on the floor, you’ll focus on basic movements as well as flexibility and relaxation.
Most of our lives are directed by the energy of doing—known as yang in the Taoist tradition. To bring life into balance, we need to cultivate its opposite, yin, the energy of “allowing.” Now Kim Eng offers a powerful program of conscious movement to help us balance these forces and accept each moment just as it is. Join her on Presence Through Movement: Yin Yoga to learn postures and practices that take you into this state of presence.
This is a great resource for learning Yin Yoga.The 2-DVD set by Paul Grilley, Yin Yoga's foremost authority, is the definitive presentation on this essential practice. Yin Yoga emphasizes yoga postures held on the floor for long periods of time (usually 2 to 5 minutes or longer) with a minimum of muscular effort. The focus is on gentle stretching and stimulation of the fascia and connective tissues of the body. Rather than an exclusive style of practice, Yin Yoga is the necessary complement to muscular, dynamic strength-based yoga and fitness practices.
