    In A Journey Into Yin Yoga, world-renowned yoga instructor Travis Eliot guides you through this contemporary and effective approach for strengthening the mind, body, and spirit. You will learn about the origins and practice of yin yoga, a challenging approach in which poses are held for several minutes to target the connective tissues of the hips, pelvis, and lower spine. You will learn to help clients mindfully transition between poses and gently allow tissues to stretch, facilitating better circulation and joint health for your clients and improving their flexibility. Throughout, you will learn the benefits, contraindications, alignment points, and modifications so you can adjust the poses for different needs and body types.

    Eliot also explains eight breathing techniques and eight meditation practices for improved focus, reduced stress, and enhanced clarity. Ten ready-to-use yin sequences allow you to target specific client goals, including better sleep, spine flexibility, and healthy hips, knees, and shoulders.

    A Journey Into Yin Yoga presents 46 yin yoga poses with stunning photos and detailed instruction, along with inspiring quotes, stories, and interviews from celebrities, athletes, and health professionals. You will be inspired to discover the unique path to improved mental and physical strength and balance. Certified professionals can confidently apply the concepts to their clients and, with the CE exam, pursue continuing education credits in the process.
