Yin Yang Yoga Sequence

by Katie Bock



You are made of several parts, as am I. These parts fit together like a puzzle and become one when you allow them to. Yin and Yang are opposites, two sides of the same coin. Both yin and yang live within you and just like we need both action and rest to stay healthy we need both yin and yang. Harmony comes when we choose to embrace all parts of the self, darkness with the light. Acceptance leads to balance and harmony.

This Yoga sequence pulls together yin and yang through movement, breath and rest, relaxation. You begin with a flowing sun salutation tapping into yang energy, this is the first 6 poses. Then you go into the slow down, looking within yin energy, this is the last 5 poses. Let your breath guide the way into harmony.
