About Yin Yoga:
Yin yoga is the perfect balance to yang practice such as Hatha or Vinyasa or any yang activities such as running, cycling or walking. This yoga approach promotes deeper stretching, reaching beyond the muscles, lengthening and strengthening tendons, fascia and other connective tissues. Connective tissues respond very well to SLOW, SUSTAINED pressure applied for a prolonged period of time, therefore during a Yin practice postures are held passively for 3-5 min. Yin yoga helps to stretch/remodel the fascia of our bodies and thus prevents loss of range of motion of our joints. The longer held postures of Yin yoga can also aid in remodeling collagen in scar tissues and directly stimulate the energetic meridians of our body, thereby helping to balance the function of our internal organs.
And last but not least, the practice of Yin yoga reduces or eliminates post exercise soreness. If you wish to increase the flexibility of your body, improve your body posture or recover range of motion lost due to an injury, aging or sedentary life style, incorporate Yin practice into your weekly schedule and join us on Tuesday evenings.
