Yin is a therapeutic practice where the focus is to stretch deep down in the joints and connective tissues; yin privileges the breath and utilizes silence. Postures are held 5-10 minutes to find stillness in the depth of your stretch. Props are used to aid in opening up the meridian lines of the body and stretching the connective tissue.
With longer holds the teacher has more time to offer one-on-one personalized modification; the slower pace allows the body to drift into a meditative state and ease your way into a blissful savasana. Yin is the perfect balance to the busyness of day-to-day living.
