Yin
In Yin Yoga, we hold postures for several minutes, usually from a couple to five minutes. We focus on relaxing the muscles of the target areas that we intend to influence. This allows not only for muscles to get a deep stretch, but for deep tissues such as fascia, ligaments, tendons and joints to be exercised in a very beneficial way. This type of yoga is an ideal compliment to Yang exercises, which include non-Yin Yoga, running, walking, biking and working out with weights. Yin Yoga is associated with improvement in flexibility, maintenance of mobility, and a high likelihood of euphoria.
Give yourself the gift of presence and breathe with a light-hearted and fun practice which will consist of light flow paired with longer held poses to allow for deeper surrender, acceptance, and present moment awareness.
