Yin Yoga

A quiet, contemplative practice.

The Yin method targets the deepest tissues of the body, the connective tissues, rather than the muscles. Instead of a fast, dynamic movement, the connective tissues respond to a slow sustained hold. 

Through a Yin practice, we seek to access our ligaments, joints, bones, and the deep fascia. First, we find our edge, our personal wall of resistance that signals us to refrain from going further. Once we find our edge and settle into the sweet spot of the pose, we invite stillness, surrendering by simply letting go.  

Finally, we hold the pose for several minutes, in a deep and concentrated way.
