What is Yin Yoga?

Yin is a slow flow that stretches connective tissue, tendons, ligaments and muscular tissue. This style uses gravity rather then effort to stretch the body and relieve stiffness in muscles and joints. Postures are passive and done primarily on the floor typically held for 1-5 minutes at a time. The temperature in the room is turned slightly down, creating a meditative and gentle practice. Yin helps to heal and prevent injuries and promotes overall flexibility! It is a great balance to the Hatha and Vinyasa classes in order to maximize your benefits.
