The Yin Yoga Book provides an in-depth look at the philosophy and practice of Yin Yoga. Clark's fascinating and comprehensive book is divided into three sections: (I) What is Yin Yoga; (II) The Benefits of Yin Yoga, including discussions of anatomy, the energy body, and the heart and mind body; (III) The Practice of Yin Yoga, including illustrated descriptions of 30 yin yoga asanas (poses). Yin Yoga has the same goals and objectives as any other school of yoga; however, it directs the stimulation normally created in the asana portion of the practice deeper than the superficial or muscular tissues (the yang tissues). Yin Yoga generally targets the connective tissues of the hips, pelvis, and lower spine. Suitable for almost all levels of students, Yin Yoga is a perfect complement to the dynamic and muscular (yang) styles of yoga that emphasize internal heat, and the lengthening and contracting of our muscles.

A really helpful and insightful book for anyone who is familiar with yoga or for those starting out. I love yin and find that the benefits are enumerable. The book provides great descriptions of every pose complete with modifications. What I also love about this book is the connections to Chinese medicine and focus of affected meridians. You'll get a great deep tissue stretch and feel great, but you can also choose to work on certain health concerns and incorporate meditative practice. A great find.
