Yin Yoga is a slow-paced style of yoga that incorporates principles of Chinese medicine. In this practice, poses are typically held for longer durations, ranging from 2 to 5 minutes. Props are utilized throughout the class to facilitate deeper sensation and movement. The primary objective of longer holds is to stretch and release fascia tissue, placing greater emphasis on this aspect rather than on muscle tissue. Yin Yoga is known for its ability to restore balance to more active yoga practices due to its slower pace and focus on breath work, Yin Yoga can also promote a calmer mind and reduce anxiety.
