What is Yin Yoga?

Yin is a practice that targets the ‘yin’ tissues of the body. It is a complement to more ‘yang’ activities such as other forms of yoga, sport and gym programmes. Poses are held for minutes at a time to target the deeper layers of connective tissue while simultaneously promoting and maintaining mobility. The longer holds of poses in Yin Yoga support a meditation practice.
