Yin yoga is a practice that aims to go deeper than the muscular tissues, or "yang" tissues, affected in other types of yoga. It targets the connective tissues, such as the ligaments, bones and joints, through long-held poses and deep relaxation which isn't normally exercised in a more active asana class. The postures can be held for anywhere between 1 to 5 minutes each, which can create a different challenge for some people, but ultimately brings a much needed "yin" energy to our typical "yang" style of classes.
Props are needed for YIN YOGA. Please bring 2 blocks and 2 blankets. A bolster would make your practice much nicer but is not essential.
