Yin Yoga Breathing-Belly Breathing

Those of you who have practiced Yin Yoga know that it is quite different than more Yang forms of Yoga. So it would go to follow that the breath techniques are different as well. In more active forms of Yoga the breaths are sometimes used to bring energy up. But in a Yin Practice we want to keep the energy very grounded and in the lower or more ‘Yin’ area’s of the body.

One of the easiest Yin Breaths to practice is belly breathing. Or Diaphragmatic breathing as it is know in anatomical circles.
