A yin yoga practice incorporates poses designed to improve he flow of qi, the subtle life force essential to organ health, immunity, and emotional well-being. The postures are moved through slowly and mindfully, gently allowing tendons, fascia, and ligaments to stretch as circulation improves and the mind becomes calm.
Experienced yoga teacher Ulrica Norberg describes how to balance yin and yang on and off the mat, sharing her own experiences and offering wisdom for adapting the yogic principles in modern life. Readers will learn to develop their own individualised yin yoga practice, complete with a yin yoga flow, visualization techniques, and ayurvedic health principles. Photographs and clear descriptions highlight proper alignment, ensuring the practice will be safe and effective.
About the Author
Ulrica Norberg (E-RYT 500) is a well-known yogi and writer in Northern Europe with a Masters degree in Human sciences with a major in film, media, and communication. Ulrica’s first encounter with yoga was through Zen Buddhist studies in 1994 when she lived in New York City. In the late 1990s she finished her first yoga training in classical Hatha Yoga. That led to even deeper studies in yoga, alignment principles, anatomy, and energetics through various yoga styles and teachers. In early 2002 she discovered Yin Yoga and has since continued her studies in Yin. Ulrica is very intrigued by the mind-body connection and followed her interest in the science of the subtle body to the teachings of ISHTA Yoga. Ulrica is one of Ishta yoga’s senior teachers and is Ishta yoga’s Scandinavian representative.
She is currently teaching teacher’s training, workshops, retreats, conventions, and events for yoga, meditation, and personal growth in addition to writing and coaching.
She was one of the first pioneers of yoga in Scandinavia from 1998 and on, and since then she has taught and coached a vast range of yoga students and trained over 500 yoga teachers in Scandinavia. Ulrica has owned her own studio, travelled around the world several times, made yoga DVDs, and written several books, articles, and audiobooks on yoga, some of which have been translated into different languages. Ulrica is known for her deep knowledge, inquiry, humbleness, and warm approach.
