Yin yoga is holding a relaxed posture for typically 3-5 minutes, exerting positive stress on the subtle body tissues as a way to trigger the body’s natural repair response leading to stronger and more supple joints. Yin yoga is a perfect complement to more yang practices, such as ashtanga and vinyasa flow yoga practices, as well as sports, cycling and running. Yin Yoga targets connective tissues such as fascia and takes care of parts of the body that yang practices don’t. Our bodies need both yang and yin exercise for a balanced body. Through practicing Yin Yoga, greater flexibility, less pain, increased range of motion and less inflammation is possible.
