Yin yoga is well suited as one effective option to help evoke the relaxation response; it also addresses connective tissue tightness around the hips, pelvis, low back, and pelvic floor.

Yin yoga is not a restorative practice. It is highly effective for persistent pelvic, low back and hip pain because of the targeted focus on these areas of the body.

Nine of the most effective postures are taught in this resource package.  They are a companion series to Pelvic Health Solution's course: Innovative Exercises for the Sensitive Nervous System.

There are two videos for each posture:

  1. An instructional video which reviews all of the key elements for teaching clients each of the nine postures. These can be found in the 'Course Materials' section.
  2. The second video in each series is for home practice for the patient. Video instructions for patients will allow them to quiet their minds and focus on the sensations in their body as they practice their yin yoga. These can be found in the 'Course Materials' and 'Patient Exercises' sections.

The 'Course Materials' section of this course allows you, the healthcare professional, to watch all materials and take notes. The 'Patient Exercises' section allows you to prescribe the exercises to your patients (an Embodia membership is required to prescribe exercises to patients).
