The world is a hectic place and everyone needs a way to unwind. However, what works for one person often does not work for someone else. Yin Yoga may be the answer which everyone is seeking but very few have heard of or understand yet.
Yoga has been practiced in one form or another for thousands of years; it originated in India although it did not become well known in the western world until the late twentieth century.

Of course, they are two sides of one coin and the best exercise for your body and mind is a combination of both.
