Yin is all about long, deep holds to target the connective tissues, ligaments, and fascia of the body, and to relax and restore the joints and muscles. Yin postures are held for three to five minutes which gives the body an opportunity to open and release tension from deeper tissues.
This form of yoga is a great complement to more dynamic and active (yang) practices. Yin is a meditative, intimate practice and is a great aid for learning to sit in meditation, and to observe sensations in the body, feelings, and emotions.
