Yin Yoga

Yin yoga is a style of yoga founded by Paulie Zink. It is a synthesis he created by combining Indian Hatha yoga and several disciplines from the Chinese Taoist tradition with yoga postures and variations, movements, vocalizations, visualization techniques, and insights he developed himself.Yin Yoga have following components:

  • Yin yoga- Mostly sitting or lying postures for promoting growth, clearing energetic blockages, and enhancing circulation.
  • Yang Yoga- Standing or more strenuous postures for developing core strength and muscle tone, balance, and stamina.
  • Taoist Flow yoga- This includes both yin and yang yoga postures practiced in continuous, smooth and circular motions. The technique of transition from pose to pose is integral to the practice.
  • Chi Kung- These exercises involve very simple and gentle movement and breathing techniques.

Yin Yoga works the area from the navel to the knees, but the principles of Yin Yoga can be applied to all areas of the body.
