Yin Culture. The mission of Yin Culture is to be a harmonizing force in the world. Many Souls are finding it difficult to maintain their centre in this time of rapid change. Many yearn to return to the harmony of nature. It is these Souls for which Yin Culture is medicine. Yin Culture is based on Taoist and Tantric philosophy applied to modern culture. The practices draw from two sources: The modern practice of Yin Yoga, as taught by Paul Grilley and Sarah Powers. The ancient practices of Pranayama, and Meditation from Tantric Hatha Yoga.
