Practices to help mobilize the body and bring balance to mind and body. Yin Yoga works with the colder tissues of the body - connective tissue, joints, ligaments, and bones - to keep it healthy, strong, and mobile. In Yin we work with these tissues, meridians, seasons, chakras, and elements by integrating Traditional Chinese Medicine into the practices for a more holistic perspective and practice.
