Yin yoga is the practice of still, active stretching. Poses are held for a longer duration to allow time for tissues to release tension & and energy to flow smoothly. Yin yoga is about releasing physical and mental resistance, deepening awareness, being present and finding surrender in the moment.
Yin is sometimes referred to as Taoist Yoga because it blends with ancient Chinese understandings of health and vitality. The poses are held with the intention of harmonizing energies, emotions, elements and organs associated with the meridians.

I just completed Abigail’s Yin YTT and it was more magical and in depth than I could’ve imagined in a span of just two weeks. It was so informative and helpful and I now know exactly what to do as a Yin teacher. I also found a new community of beautiful teachers and now great friends. I would recommend Abigail’s Yin YTT to anyone who’s considering it, really. You’ll get much more out of it than you expect!
