YinSights was originally published as an electronic, web-book that allowed anyone with an Internet browser to discover the philosophy, physiology and practice of Yin Yoga. This original version is still available, however many readers found that trying to read and digest over 300 pages of information from a web site was difficult. They asked for a printed version of YinSights and their requests were answered in 2007 with the printing of a hardcopy version of the online material. With the creation of The Complete Guide to Yin Yoga in 2012, the earlier hardcopy version of YinSights went out of print. But, now it is back! We have reprinted a limited number of copies of YinSights and made them available through Amazon.com. If you want the original version of Bernie’s Yin Yoga book, its is now available. Of course, you can still download the older PDF version of YinSights if you like, by clicking the button below, and you can still read the updated version totally for free online.
There are many similarities between The Complete Guide to Yin Yoga and YinSights, The Philosophy & Practice of Yin Yogaand several significant differences. YinSights includes an overview of the philosophies and histories of many different branches of yoga and Eastern philosophies, including Samkhya, classical Yoga, Tantra Yoga and Hatha Yoga. These sections are not repeated in The Complete Guide to Yin Yoga. What is in The Complete Guide to Yin Yoga is added materials for each of the Yin Yoga asanas, more detailed investigations of the benefits of the practice and the addition of more postures, especially for other areas of the body beyond the hips and spine.

In the second section of the book YinSights explores the practice of Yin Yoga in detail. This section could be considered a complete, stand-alone book describing the way to practice Yin Yoga and the asanas normally used. Several flows are offered with different themes: flows for the spine and hips and flows to increase energy movement to the kidneys and liver. Throughout the book over 200 pictures and drawings are used to help illustrate the technical points presented as well as clarify the practice.
