Yin Yoga is a quiet, gentle practice, suitable for all levels of practitioner. The postures are all practiced on the floor, staying in each from 3 to 5 minutes while relaxing the muscles. Yin Yoga targets the body’s connective tissue, addressing the mobility and health of our joints in the hips, pelvis and spine. The gentle compression and traction of our connective tissues also activates chi (prana, energy) flow through our meridians (energy pathways) and their associated organs.
