#10: The Life-Changing Magic of Yin Yoga
Jan 16, 2020
Jennifer O'Sullivan & Sarah Jane Shangraw

Yin yoga, the slow and quiet approach to asana, flows against the current of mainstream yoga practices these days. With this episode, we urge you to try it based on the ways in which it bolstered us during challenging times.

Not to dismiss the physical and energetic benefits of the practice, here we’re talking about an often unspoken aspect of Yin Yoga, that the poses serve as accessible containers for mindfulness meditation and similar practices.

In this episode, we get personal and share our early experiences with the practice and the ways in which it accelerated our relationship to the inner methods and transformed our lives.

In a yang society that encourages us to strive to the detriment of our health, Yin practice is a key tool for balance and awakening.

We would love to hear from you! Send us your stories about how Yin Yoga has impacted your life. You can email us feedback@skillfulmeanspodcast.com or tag us on social (@skillfulmeanspodcast) on Facebook and Instagram.
