“We do not use the body to get into a pose – we use the pose to get into our body.”
– Bernie Clarke
Benefits of a regular Yin yoga practice
Yin yoga stretches and targets both the deep connective tissues between the muscles, and the fascia throughout the body. The aim is to increase circulation in the joints and improve flexibility as the poses stretch and exercise the bone and joint areas. It also helps us to regulate the body’s flow of energy.
Yin yoga is amazing for calming the nervous system, and providing a space for the body to relax.
