Yin yoga is accessible to anyone, including beginners. Poses, held between 3 and 5 minutes, are done mostly on the floor and target the deep connective tissue concentrated in the major joints of the body. Yin yoga helps rejuvenate connective tissues, improve circulation, and bring joints back to their natural range of motion.
The longer duration within each pose provides the opportunity to slow down and bring awareness to the current capabilities of our bodies. Through mindfulness practices, we are able to focus inward more clearly and open ourselves to fully embody the present moment.
Yin is a wonderful compliment practice to our more vigorous activities such as vinyasa, running, cycling or other athletic pursuits. Maintaining poses for several minutes can have an intense effect on the tight, sore and sometimes inflamed tissues that endurance athletes often experience.
Please note: Yin is NOT restorative yoga. Due to the long, slow, deep holds of the Yin poses, this practice can be intense. Please discuss any injuries you have with your instructor prior to class.
