Serenity yin yoga // Magdalena Mecweld
Imagine that your body is agile and healthy. That your mind is calm and balanced. That you feel energetic and happy. Only a few Yin yoga sequences can have that impact on your life.
Yin yoga is a tranquil and restful yoga. It has been described as unbearably nice or nicely unbearable, but above all, it is easy—everyone can do it.
My wish with this book is to help you become agile, calm, and energetic: in short, to get you in better shape. To help me with this, I have recruited my friends and students, all of whom practice Yin yoga with me. I hope that, together, we will inspire you to try Yin yoga on your own, at home, in your own time and without pressure. You don’t even have to wear special clothes. Lie down in the simple positions, relax and just be.
If you do Yin yoga once a day, that’s fantastic.
If you do it once a week, that’s fantastic, too.
If you only ever do it once, that’s also fantastic!
