Your Yin Yang Practice

In the 1970s in North America, a Taoist yoga teacher Paulie Zink introduced a yoga style holding poses for longer periods of time to increase flexibility while working on the energy channels of the body. This style called Yin Yoga was designed to complement the Yang practices of dynamic movements, flows and standing poses. Nowadays the term Yin Yang Yoga refer to a practice where both Yin and Yang aspects of yoga are included within the same session.

What is Yin Yang Yoga?

Yin Yang Yoga is a slower practice where poses are held for longer, working on the deep connective tissues and joints in the body (Yin). On the other hand, Yang Yoga refers to a more active practice working on the muscles and blood flow, building strength, stamina, and flexibility (Yang). Yang styles of yoga are those with rhythm and repetition like Vinyasa Flow. A Yin Yang yoga class can start with Yin yoga to calm the mind and to work on the joints before the muscles are warm. Or also the class may start dynamically (Yang) and end with longer held poses to relax and calm the nervous system. Yin and Yang yoga sequences can have a powerful effect on your energy levels and how you feel after class.

Information about Yin Yang Yoga Retreats Teacher Trainings

Sometimes one tends to bring to life more Yang action, external stimulation, but being overexposed to this energy can create an imbalance that can be translated into stress, exhaustion, or health problems, so it is important to provide a dose of Yin to maintain this harmony and balance. You can choose for doing a Yin and Yang Yoga Teacher Training, in the United Kingdom, Ibiza, or in Thailand, getting a certification upon completion, or even attend a Yin and Yang Yoga Retreat, moving into balance in paradisiacal places.
