In Yin Yoga class, we hold poses for long periods of time, from one to five minutes or more. It is a type of yoga with roots in martial arts as well as yoga, and it’s designed to increase circulation in the joints and improve flexibility. While other forms of yoga focus on the major muscle groups, yin yoga targets the body’s connective tissues. It is believed that by releasing our tissues in this way, we can remove blocked energy in our body. Holding poses longer benefits the mind as well as the body, providing a chance to practice being still. The focus of the class is on relaxation and on moving the body from the reactive state to a calm responsive state. Gravity is usually going to be the biggest factor getting into a pose, rather than relying on the muscles. Anyone who want to sooth their body after a long day of hard work or those who experience too much work-out for the week should treat themselves a calm, relaxing Yin yoga class.
