Yin yoga stretches and targets both the deep connective tissues between the muscles & the fascia throughout the body. The aim is to increase circulation in the joints and improve flexibility. Yin Yoga is popular because it offers the chance to be still, be present, and work within while you breathe and stretch deeply and create more space in mind and body.
While the more yang/dynamic style of yoga targets the muscles,Yin is a slow, soothing, and meditative style of yoga that targets the deep connective tissues, bones, joints, fascia, and ligaments in the body.
In Yin Yoga, we hold mostly passive poses for about two to five minutes to work into our connective tissues. Lengthening extremely tight tissues can be an uncomfortable practice, but using this time to focus on breathing is a large part of Yin Yoga and also one of the many Yin Yoga benefits.
