Yin Yoga targets the connective tissues, ligaments and tendons of the physical body. The use of long held postures stimulates the meridians and nervous systems. The steady breathing technique encourages the mind to find focus. The stillness of the body creates moments of letting go.
The use of props like blankets, blocks or bolsters helps support your body to relax deeper into the asana.
This form of yoga which derives its teachings from ancient Chinese and Indian traditions promotes deep relaxation, releases tension and encourages flexibility within the body and mind.
Yin Yoga is a beautiful compliment to the practice of Yang.
