What are the benefits of Yin Yoga?

Yin Yoga gives rise to a myriad of benefits to every level of our being:

Physically, Yin Yoga helps maintain the agility and mobility of the joints below the navel and above the knee, giving rise to more comfortable stillness and more graceful movement;

Energetically, Yin Yoga is essentially needle-less acupuncture, enabling your energy system to move towards its own natural equilibrium, balance and harmony;

Emotionally, Yin creates a space to breathe, to remain still and simply observe in a non-attached way the array of emotions that ebb and flow, cultivating acceptance of what is, breeding an emotional resiliency and maturity;

Psychologically, this practice can help develop the capacity to concentrate, to focus our attention, to cultivate awareness of what is arising within.
