My friend, Kassandra Reinhardt, has just released her new Yin Yoga book – just in time for the holidays. For almost two years she has been working hard behind the scenes writing a book on her passion, yin yoga.
Yin yoga offers a remedy to the stress and hustle of your busy yang life. By concentrating on restorative poses that target your deeper fascia and connective tissues, you’ll experience increased flexibility and improved joint health. Yin yoga also focuses on deep breathing and longer hold times, allowing you the time and space to clear your mind and enhance your mental acuity.
- More than 50 step-by-step poses that focus on specific areas of the body
- 20 sequences linking the poses, designed to help readers reach specific physical, mental, or emotional goals
- Introductory information on the basic techniques and philosophies behind yin yoga, including correct breathing techniques, chakras and meridians, and how best to practice yin yoga
These meditative poses will help you attain a renewed sense of mindfulness and physical well-being, making them the perfect complement to an active yang lifestyle and helping bring you back into balance.
The only book that gives you a mindful guide to yoga to help future-proof your body! Avoid putting stress on your joints and heart with this slower yoga style.
As yin balances yang in Taoist philosophies, so the slower yin-style yoga offers an alternative to the faster, more active forms of yoga such as ashtanga. Yin yoga concentrates on holding and breathing through floor-based poses, allowing you the time and space to clear your mind and stretch your body.
