Yin and Yang are the Taoist concepts which describe the two relative qualities present in everything. Yin is all that is static, silent, hidden, cold and soft. Yang is all that is dynamic, ever-changing, visible, warm and strong.
One does not exist without the other.Yin Yang Yoga blends two styles of yoga into one practice – bringing together the benefits of passively holding yoga poses (Yin) with more dynamic sequences and standing postures (Yang).
The lesson may start with quiet Yin postures and then be more active or just starting with
Yang Sun Salutations and finish with relaxed Yin Yoga.
Combining both Yin and Yang elements in one class provides a balanced practice and can have a powerful effect on energy.
“The practice of yin/yang yoga helps us learn about stillness in movement and the flow in stillness.” Sarah Powers
