Yogis around the world have discovered health and
healing through yin yoga-and now you can, too.
A yin yoga practice incorporates poses designed to improve the flow of prana or qi, the subtle life force essential to organ health, immunity, and overall well-being. The postures- which are mostly seated or reclined-target the connective tissues in the body with the intention of gradually creating a relaxation response. The effect is improved circulation, stress levels, and a calm mind and nervous system. Experienced yoga teacher Ulrica Norberg describes how to balance yin and yang on and off the mat, sharing her own experiences and offering wisdom for adapting the yogic principles in modern life. Readers will learn to develop their own practice, complete with a yin yoga flow, visualization techniques, and ayurvedic health principles. Photographs and clear
descriptions highlight proper alignment, ensuring the practice will be safe and ellective.
