What is Yin Yoga? Yin Yoga has the same goals and objectives as other schools of yoga; however, it directs the stimulation normally created in the asana portion of the practice deeper than the superficial muscular tissues. Yin Yoga targets the connective tissues, such as the ligaments, bones, and even the joints of the body that normally are not exercised very much in a more active practice.
While initially this style of yoga can seem quite passive or soft, yin practice can be quite challenging due to the long duration of the poses. We can remain in the postures anywhere from one to ten minutes! Yin and yang tissues respond quite differently to being exercised. You need to experience this to really know what Yin Yoga is all about. After you have experienced it, even just once, you will realize that there is more to maintaining a healthy body and mind.
Practiced on your back, abdomen, or in a seated position, individual instruction is given on the use of yoga props so you never experience any pain. Breathing practices and meditation techniques will be introduced to enhance your ability to retain the benefits which include a tension free body and mind.
