Yin Yoga is a complementary yoga practice to the more dynamic and invigorating yoga styles that are predominant today.
In Yin Yoga, floor postures are held passively for several minutes in order to place mild to moderate ‘stress’ on the deep layers of connective tissue and fascia in the body.
Physically, Yin Yoga restores and maintains the natural mobility of the joints and is an amazing way to maintain flexibility and mobility in our joints.
Energetically, Yin Yoga works on the body’s meridian system, which enhances the body’s energetic flow and supports emotional equilibrium.
Mentally, Yin yoga is a great way to grow your meditation practice. Without the constant distraction of movement, Yin allows us, gently, to slow down and go inward.
And as this practice emphasizes stillness and silence, Yin Yoga prepares both the body and the mind for deeper experiences in meditation.
