Bernie Clark - Yin Yoga
The Philosophy & Practice of Yin Yoga
With a foreword by Sarah Powers.
"Bernie Clark's The complete Guide to Yin Yoga is one of the best yoga resources now available" - Paul Grilley.
Yin Yoga is a part of the original Hatha Yoga tradition. In its modern incarnation, Yin Yoga combines the influences of Indian Yoga with Chinese Daoist practices and Western science to improve our health on many levels. With its emphasis on long-held passive stresses of the deeper connective tissues, Yin Yoga mobilezes and strengthens our joints, ligaments and deep fascial networks.
Bernie Clark's Complete Guide to Yin Yoga provides an in-depth look at the philosophy and practice of Yin Yoga plus illustrated sections on how to practice Yin Yoga, including descriptions with photographs of 30 Yin Yoga asanas.
"Yin Yoga is a practice much needed in today's difficult divisive times. It offers us a way to leave behind our ideas of how we should be, and return to our true selves, where all lasting healing takes place. Bernie Clark has written a wonderfully detailed account of the history, philosophy, and practice of Yin Yoga. I reccommend it not only for those interested in Yin Yoga, but for all yoga practitioners." - Biff Mithoefer
