What is Yin Yoga?

Poses here are almost all  in seated positions, and they are held for three to five minutes.  This is a passive practice which allows a deeper stretch in your connective tissue and deep fascia.  For this reason it’s often called “yoga of the joints”.

Gravity plays a big part in yin yoga, as you melt into the pose.  In yin yoga we often use props to help you increase flexibility, and using meditation to calm your mind.   To mix up your sessions, you can rotate between yin and gentle/slow flow (yang) classes.

Who is this for?

Those seeking a more passive and meditative practice.  Yin yoga is more about opening up your energy blocks in your joints and fascia tissue.  By opening up these areas you can ease tension in your body.  The goal of yin yoga is to be “still” as you lean into each pose.  Here you will focus on your breathing and strengthen your mindset (how to control your thoughts).

 

Benefits:

  • Prepares the body for meditation
  • Opens ups energy blocks
  • Promotes balance and mobility (joints and fascia)
  • Helps with flexibility
  • Encourages self-awareness
  • Curbs anxiety and depression
