Explore the fundamentals of Yin Yoga based on the holistic model of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).

TCM has been practiced for thousands of years. It is an inclusive web of healing modalities that addresses our entire being including the body, mind, and spirit. In this medicinal practice, it is believed that our emotions are intrinsically connected with our health and vitality.

The Chinese meridian pathways are vessels in which our energy or Chi travels. There are twelve regular meridians and eight extraordinary meridians. While the regular meridians are mainly used for healing purposes, the extraordinary meridians are for spiritual pursuit.

Yin yoga and traditional Chinese medicine compliment each other seamlessly. Yin poses act as acupressure treatments and can help release or reinvigorate our energetic flow. An inviting practice, Yin yoga is  accessible for all ages, physical levels, and conditions.
