In Yin Yoga, expect to move at a slower pace and hold postures from 2-10 minutes, targeting and opening deep connective tissues, fascia, tendons and joints.
Yin Yoga is a slower paced style of yoga where postures are held for longer periods of time, usually ranging from 2-10 minutes. Yin postures target the deep connective tissues, fascia, tendons and joints in the body, increasing flexibility and range of motion. Yin Yoga is also designed to improve the flow of subtle energy in the meridian pathways of the body in a similar way to acupuncture. This improved flow of energy is known to improve organ health, immune function and emotional well-being. Yin classes often target the hips, pelvis and lower spine.
