Yin Yoga has many benefits. If you’re feeling restless, overwhelmed or stressed, Yin Yoga is for you.
Yin Yoga Main Benefits
- By connecting to your physical body, you can step away from your thinking mind.
- By bringing your attention to your breath, your thoughts become more silent.

How Does Yin Yoga Work?
- On a physical level, you are working with our connecting tissue (fascia) instead of your muscles.
- On an emotional level, you are working with your thoughts and emotions.
Yin Yoga Is For Every Body
- Every body is different but Yin Yoga is for every body.
- Yin Yoga is not about beeing good at something.
- It is not about achievements, physical flexibility or beeing fit.
- It is not a performance and not a competitive sport.
- Yin Yoga is about taking time for yourself.
