Yin Yoga Pose Library


I have put this guide together so that you can be empowered to continue your yin yoga practice at home (or wherever) in your own time. It is not meant to be prescriptive, but an overview of poses that you can use to cater to what YOU need.


Here's what you'll find in this guide:

  • Pose Name

  • Physical Benefits

  • How to enter the pose

  • How to exit the pose

  • Contraindications (when not to practice / when to be careful)

  • Useful Props

In your Yin Yoga practice it is extremely important to listen to your own body. Within some of these poses you may experience discomfort, but we are NOT looking for pain. If you have an injury, be sure not to push yourself. If you feel any pain or pinching, back off out of the pose or try something else.

Make sure you move in and out of these poses slowly and mindfully. Give your body time to understand the changes that are occurring and make sure you rest between poses so that your body can reset.

While each pose does list suggestions for props and the known contraindications, your body is unique. It is your responsibility to keep yourself safe in your yoga practice ❤
