Yin Yoga is a practice that targets the connective tissues in the body. Passive postures from seated or lying down are held for an extended period of time, allowing the muscles to relax and release. The stillness of Yin Yoga can ease tension, quiet the mind, increase circulation to the joints, and improve flexibility over time.
