What is Yin Yang? ☯️
During my recent training in Thailand we discussed how Yin and Yang is viewed as a symbolic concept, one that is often used visually within the yoga world.It is conceived within Taoism in ancient Chinese philosophy where it is often portrayed as two opposing sides. These contrary forces, Yin and Yang, are actually complimentary to each other and are deeply interconnected within the natural world as well as our own lives.
Take this for an example — we need nighttime (Yin) in order to enjoy and welcome the sunrise of day (Yang). In Yin Yoga Practice we move slowly and focus on stressing the body more deeply, whereas in Yang, we stretch and move the body more dynamically.
The human body and various movements are constructed to compliment certain apposing yoga poses. Breathing techniques that use the upper body to focus more on Yang and deep stretching to root the lower body into Yin.
