This review is from: The Yin Yoga Kit: The Practice of Quiet Power (Boxed Set) (Paperback)
Yin yoga is a wonderful way to increase your flexibility. If you're a beginner, this is a great way to prep your body for more advanced poses. If you're a yogini already, you will find that yin yoga is a fine compliment to all other types of yoga (hatha, vinyasa, ashtanga, etc.) However, the biggest challenge in yin yoga is holding each pose for a long time (at least 5 minutes). That is why this kit, which includes a CD, is a terrific way to practice. Biff Mithoefer's instructions on the CD are clear, informative, and engaging. He gently talks you through each pose so that you are able to receive the full benefits without becoming impatient. Also included are a number of flash cards that show both basic and advanced versions of each pose. Before starting your practice, I recommend reading the book that comes with the kit, as it gives an excellent introduction to the practice of yin yoga. I have been practicing regularly since I got the kit, and have been getting excellent results!
