Yin Yoga is a slow-paced style of yoga with poses or asanas that are held for longer periods of time—three to five minutes is typical. Yin yoga poses apply moderate stress to the connective tissues—the tendons, fascia, and

Yin Yoga sequences are designed to improve the flow of qi, the subtle energy said in Chinese medicine to run through the meridian pathways of the body. Improved qi flow is hypothesized to improve organ health, immunity, and emotional well-being. A more meditative approach to yoga, Yin aims at cultivating awareness of one’s inner silence, and bringing to light a universal, interconnected quality.
