YIN yoga is a slow-paced style of Yoga with asanas being held for 3-5 minutes.
Yin yoga poses apply moderate stress to the connective tissues of the body—the tendons, fascia, and ligaments—with the aim of increasing circulation in the joints and improving flexibility. A more meditative approach to Yoga, YIN aims at cultivating awareness of inner silence, and bringing to light a universal, interconnecting quality.
YIN is a physical practice, but is also a practice for our minds. It invites in the knowledge that we are very powerful beings and have control over our thoughts, our fears, our emotions, our reactions, our attitude, our outlook on life.
