Yin and yang are opposite and complementary principles in nature. While yang is the changing, moving, revealing aspects of nature, yin is the stable, unmoving, hidden aspect of life. Trauma can become deeply embedded in the body within connective tissue. Yin yoga utilizes low to the earth asana held for 3-5 minutes to allow softening of fascia and release of blockages within energy meridians. A yin practice balances the internal organs resulting in improved flow of prana, reduced stress/anxiety, and increased joint mobility.
