Yin Yoga is an integrative practice that combines observation, sensation and stillness. Positions are held for 3-5 minutes in a passive way. The weight of the body and the force of gravity do all the work. With each exhale, there is the potential to do less, to let go, to relax into the shape.

In these suspended moments, the student has the opportunity to listen to their body. Sensation is the language of the body and with practiced attention the student has the potential to tune into what the body really needs. When we attend to sensation with no agenda or expectation, we can re-establish healthy movement patterns, release negativity and awaken to the peaceful truth that underlies all reality.
