Yin Yoga is particularly suited to help evoke the relaxation response; it also addresses connective tissue tightness around the hips, pelvis, low back and pelvic floor. The following videos outline the most popular and effective Yin postures for pelvic pain.  Yin yoga is not a restorative practice.  It is highly effective for persistent pelvic, low back and hip pain.

Nine postures are taught in this series of exercises.  They are a companion series to Pelvic Health Solution's course: Fascial Tension and the Pelvic Floor. There are two videos for each posture.  One is an instructional video, reviewing all of the key elements for teaching client's each of the eight postures.  The second video in each series is for home practice for the patient.  Video instructions for patients will allow them to quiet their mind and focus on the sensations in their body as they practice their yin yoga.
