What is Yin Yoga?
Yin is a slow-paced, meditative style of yoga that focuses on stretching and lengthening the body’s connective tissues, such as fascia, ligaments and tendons. Unlike its more dynamic counterparts, Yin Yoga involves holding mostly passive poses for an extended period, usually between 3 to 5 minutes. This extended duration allows for deep relaxation and enhanced flexibility. Yin is a wonderful practice that complements more vigorous forms of exercise and promotes both physical and mental well-being. Its gentle nature and profound benefits make it accessible to people of all ages and fitness levels.
