The 54 meditative poses and 20 targeted sequences will help you attain a sense of mindfulness and physical well-being, making it the perfect complement to a busy, active yang lifestyle and bringing you back into balance.

Description

Stretch the mindful way with this all-encompassing guide to Yin Yoga.

In today’s fast-paced world it’s easy to lose the balance in our lives and the connection with our bodies.
DK believes it’s time to change that! Yin Yoga offers a remedy to the stress and hustle of everyday life.

Heard of the term but don’t know where to begin? No worries, we’ve got you covered!

The same way that Yin balances Yang in ancient philosophies, the slower yin-style yoga featured in this yoga book offers an alternative to the faster more active forms of yoga. Instead, Yin yoga concentrates on holding and breathing through floor-based poses, awarding you with the time and space to clear both your mind and body.

Dive straight in to discover:

-Over 50 poses focusing on specific areas of the body
-Each yoga pose is demonstrated with photographic step-by-step detail
-20 sequences linking the poses, tailored to your physical and emotional targets
-Introductory spreads covering the basic techniques behind Yin Yoga

The first full-coloured step-by-step Yin yoga book on the market, this all-encompassing yoga guide is a must-have volume for individuals seeking a mindful and meditative approach to their yoga practice, as well as beginners and older yoga practitioners who are looking to adopt a slower-paced approach to yoga.

You can explore gentle variations to much-loved yoga poses, from the comfort of your own home. Every exercise utilises the essential elements of Yin yoga to ensure you can gain all the physical and mental benefits, and will also allow you to perform all 20 sequences, which combine over 50 different poses into one singular experience and focus on specific health benefits each pose has on your body.

For years, books on yoga have asked readers to bend over backwards (literally!) to conform to their physical demands. At DK, we believe it’s time to change that! Why not allow for readers to demand that yoga conform to their individual needs instead? This is gentle yoga for the mind, body and soul.

A must-have volume for those who want to take up Yoga but don’t know where to begin, or simply those seeking to start a gentle low-impact exercise whilst encouraging mindfulness, Yin Yoga can be tailored to your individual fitness needs, so you make the most out of your poses! Why not stretch yourself, literally, this New Year and try something new? Perhaps your mind, body and soul will thank you!
