Yin Yoga is a restorative yoga that emphasizes stillness and still postures, held for several minutes at a time. It targets the deep connective tissues, such as the fascia and ligaments, to increase flexibility and release tension deep in the body. Yin Yoga is typically a more passive form of yoga, with postures held for extended periods of time and a focus on breathing and relaxation. Classes include a combination of seated and supine postures, as well as the use of props, such as blocks and bolsters, to assist in deeper stretches and promote comfort. This style of yoga is designed to improve flexibility, increase circulation, and reduce stress and tension in the body. It is a great choice for those looking for a more relaxed, meditative yoga practice that emphasizes stillness, deep stretching, and relaxation.
