What is Yin Yoga?

Yin Yoga is a slow-paced style of yoga where poses are held for longer periods, typically ranging from 45 seconds to two minutes or more. Yin yoga poses target the connective tissues, like ligaments and fascia, with an aim to increase circulation in the joints and improve flexibility. It’s a meditative practice that focuses on relaxation and releasing many layers of tension.


Yin Yoga offers several benefits, including increased flexibility, improved joint mobility, reduced stress and anxiety, enhanced circulation, and better relaxation. The poses target certain areas of the body that stimulates the meridian lines in Traditional Chinese Medicine, promoting energetic balance in the body. Additionally, Yin Yoga can complement more dynamic forms of yoga or physical activities by providing a counterbalance to the intensity of those practices.
