Yin Yoga Explained
Yin Yoga targets the joints, ligaments, tendons and deep fascia networks of the body and the connective tissues of the hips, pelvis, and lower spine. The perfect compliment to the dynamic and muscular workout that emphasizes internal heat.
Yin Yoga keeps the muscles as cool as possible, allowing time to adjust and relax into a pose
for an extended period of time by combining stillness and breath.
Suitable for beginners and seasoned practitioners, Yin Yoga can seem quite passive. In reality, Yin Yoga provides a greater mental and physical challenge.
