Yin: Yin Yoga aims to help move the flow of energy in the body, and to maintain mobility in the deep connective tissue. It combines the use of passive and active postures, breathing techniques, and meditation. Classes typically offer a physically passive practice, and some poses can be help to up to 5 minutes. Props (such as blocks, straps, bolsters, and pillows) can be used to help support the practice. Many of the poses focus on the hips and the lower back, as these areas of the body require extra care and attention. Yin Yoga postures strengthen the body, enabling practitioners to sit for long periods of time during meditation.
