Yin Yoga & Pranayama

Yin yoga is a slower and deeper practice which works and targets deep tissues. A Yin practice benefits the physical body by freeing up the tight connective tissue capsules that form around the muscles and joints. With age, this tightening increases creating limited mobility.

Yin Yoga postures have a positive effect on the “Life Force” flowing through the meridian systems which run through the connective tissues of the body. So when we stimulate the deep connective tissues in a Yin Yoga practice, we positively affect the flow of Life Force or CHI. This is another reason why the practice has such healing benefits.

Pranayama is the practice of deepening the breath, or Prana "life force".  With regular practice, it develops a steady mind, strong will-power, and sound judgement. A sustained pranayama practice extends life and enhances perception.
