Yin Yoga Special Report
Yin yoga offers a brief respite from the chaotic, often abrasive world outside; a space for cultivating calm and for restoring the body back to its natural, default settings. This gentle style - a slow and subtle form of yoga, holding postures for a little long - has become incredibly popular in studios nationwide in recent time.
