Yin yoga holds fewer poses for two to five minutes mostly seated or lying down on the mat often using props. It is an opportunity to go within yourself bringing awareness to what is present in mind and body. Poses are held to give stress and stimulation to deep connective and fascia tissue to strengthen and give moisture to areas that are dry and feel non malleable. As a result, you may notice a greater range of mobility and flexibility. Yin yoga focuses on arousing the meridian lines in your body to bring balance to internal organs allowing energy or chi to flow freely. It is a great way to bring calm and balance to your life.
