Description
Carve out time in your week to explore your relationship with yourself. Yin Yoga is a slow paced, more meditative version of yoga that can be intense or gentle. In Yin Yoga, the poses are held for a long period of time (typically 3 to 7 minutes or longer) to target the connective tissues of ligaments & fascia rather than focusing on the muscles. As a result, the asanas are more passive holds, with little muscular engagement.
The Three Principles of Yin Yoga Practice
1. Come into the pose to an appropriate depth.
2. Resolve to remain still.
3. Hold the pose for time.
