Yin for Strength?
So… unfortunately, none of the movements in Yin actually achieve the conditions that are required to build strength. BUT! Yin can be an amazing complement to strength training. Active restoration and rest are as essential to building muscle, endurance and stamina as weight training and cardio. Those activities break us down a bit, in a good way! And rest supports the natural regeneration of tissues that allows us not to just get back to where we started, but a little better. Over time this is how we become resilient, how we improve our energy levels and strengthen our tissues.
This is a short practice intended to support circulation and yawn hardworking areas such as the hips and shoulders. I hope that you will return to this one as a luxurious workout cooldown or as a good stretch on off days.
