A slow paced style of yoga using the breath and extended holds in postures to allow for the stretching of deep tissues. Yin Yoga targets the connective tissues, such as tendons, ligaments, bones, and even the joints of the body (that normally are not exercised very much in a more active style of asana practice.)The Yin poses are predominantly floor based. Yin compliments more active forms of exercise by cultivating awareness within the inner body, improving flexibility, range of motion, and strength. It benefits better posture and more energy as well.
