Beginning at the approximate age of thirty the body begins the aging process. From 0 to 30 most of us have spent time building and strengthening the body. Now the body begins to feel tension in the muscles, joints which in turn effect how we move. Stronger tighter muscle bodies create tighter connective tissue which lends itself to possible injury. Yin has healing effects on the body following the meridians and chakras.
