YIn

Yin Yoga is a slow-paced style of yoga with asanas that are held for longer periods of time—five minutes or longer per pose is typical.

Yin Yoga has similar goals of other styles of yoga; however, it directs the stimulation normally created in the asana portion of the practice deeper than the superficial or muscular tissues. Yin Yoga targets the connective tissues, the tendons, fascia, ligaments, bones, and even the joints of the body that normally are not exercised very much in a more active style of asana practice.

Yin Yoga poses apply moderate stress to the connective tissues—the tendons, fascia, and ligaments—with the aim of increasing circulation in the joints and improving flexibility. Yin Yoga poses are also designed to improve the flow of qi, the subtle energy said in Chinese medicine to run through the meridian pathways of the body. Improved flow of qi is hypothesized to improve organ health, immunity, and emotional well-being.


Extend and twist to nurture without demanding the muscles to bear the intensity of power found in these “passive” postures.
