Yoga has been around for ages for a good reason. It’s a whole body exercise that’s easily tailored to different skill levels. In addition, not only does it strengthen your muscles, but it also relaxes your mind. Considering this, we can’t recommend it enough!
Yin yoga is an underrated but completely necessary style of yoga. It is definitely my favorite type and I love to practice this style as a cool down after an intense workout session. It is also the absolute best type of practice when you are feeling stressed, overwhelmed or anxious. So, the aim of a yoga practice is to become more present, calm and mindful – and this is the essence of Yin yoga. Some styles are more physically challenging while others are more relaxing and give us time to breath. The solution to everything is always balance, but some yogis choose to focus on the challenging practices and skip the restorative ones.
