Yin Yoga

Yin yoga is a style of yoga founded by Paulie Zink. It is a synthesis he created by combining Indian Hatha yoga and several disciplines from the Chinese Taoist tradition with yoga postures and variations, movements, vocalizations, visualization techniques, and insights he developed himself. Some of the unique components Paulie Zink contributed to the amalgamation of Yin yoga include those he created independently, while other constituents include those he derived from Hatha yoga and Taoist disciplines by extrapolating upon certain aspects and principles they contain.

Asana Sequences

This sequence was inspired by Sarah Power's, "Yin Yoga Session for the Lung, Heart and Intestines" from her book Insight Yoga. Practice this as a restorative yin session or a more active hatha yoga sequence. The Lung and Large Intestine Meridians are found in the upper chest and arms. Practice with the intention of stimulating and balancing these meridians in your body.

Sarah PowersI could not think of a better class to start my Winter Solstice 90 days with than a kidney sequence with Sarah Powers. I consider Sarah Powers to be one of my teachers, even though I have only practiced with her in person TWICE! She came to Virginia and I followed her from Richmond to Yogaville. But this is the power of media and why we created iHanuman.

iHanuman Features

Recorded by Saraswati at the Polarity Barn in Batesville, Virginia 2011. Carrie is a graduate of Asheville Yoga Center's teacher training program. She believes that yoga is a beautiful metaphor for life, and that the infinite teachings on the mat are food for personal transformation. In this Yin Yoga sequence, Carrie teaches the deep backbending pose, Saddle. Enjoy!
Yin Yoga is a practice unlike any other yoga practice because once you find the shape of the pose, you let go of any muscular effort and the effects are profound. You can feel the access to the deeper connective tissue and the theory is that it is in the connective tissue that you begin to really flush out the meridians where prana or chi flows in the body.
