BENEFITS OF YIN YOGA
Yin Yoga is a quiet, meditative yoga practice incorporating long-held, passive poses. Primarily targeting the fascia, the connective tissue in the body. The purpose is to harmonise the flow of chi in the body.
It is a functional style of yoga with each pose stressing a designated target area – be it a myofascial (muscle & fascia) target, joint or meridian.
The essence of a yin yoga practice is time, not intensity. So while poses are held for two to five minutes, when we come into a pose we only come to the point where we start to feel a bit of sensation. You are free to choose another pose which targets the same area.
A great complement to balance yang forms of exercise, such as dynamic yoga, running & cross-fit.
