The Fundamentals of YIN YOGA: A Practice and Brief Introduction
Yin Yoga focuses on working deeper tissues – ligaments, joints, deep fascial tissues, and bones. Poses are similar to other styles of yoga but the approach is different. All poses are done seated or lying down. Yin is unique because we relax the muscles and use gravity to come to our edge. We resolve to be still and hold for an extended amount of time. Benefits depend upon your personal intention. Improvements in flexibility, mindful awareness, and stress level are common. With a continued practice, physiological, mental and emotional, and energetic benefits can be discovered.
