Hatha Yoga is based on the philosophy of balancing our inner worlds according to the balance of the cosmic world through its focus on awareness, stability and balance. Yin Yoga, on the other hand is based on the Taoist concept of Yin and Yang (opposite and complementary principles in nature). Yin is the stable, unmoving, hidden aspect of things; Yang is the changing, moving, revealing aspect. In a world where we are bombarded with stimuli 24/7 (think laptops, phones and deadlines), our bodies and minds struggle to deal with the sheer density of material it has to process. Much of this gets trapped in our bodies as stress, tension and toxins. While Hatha Yoga’s dynamic movements build strength and balance, Yin Yoga provides us with an excellent outlet to dissolve the accumulated knots in our bodies through a series of long-held, passive stretches.
