What to expect

Yin Yoga is a contemplative style of yoga that involves holding poses for an extended period, typically three to five minutes or more. It is a slower-paced, more meditative form of the physical and spiritual discipline of yoga. Unlike other types of yoga that focus on engaging the muscles, Yin Yoga aims to target the connective tissues through passive holds and little muscular effort.

Yin yoga is meant to help promote balance within your body by working the deep connective tissues. It is a branch of hatha yoga, an ancient Indian practice that focuses on stretching and strengthening the physical body to prepare for sitting meditation.

Yin Yoga is based on three fundamental principles known as Tattvas: Edge, Stillness, and Time that are to be expected in every class. The edge refers to how deeply you go into each pose, which varies for each individual and is determined by the natural limits of your body. Props, such as blocks or blankets, can be used to support the body and help you find your edge. Once you find your edge, the goal is to remain still, and breathe deep and consistently, in the pose for an extended period of time, allowing the deep connective tissues to release. The length of time spent in each pose is an essential aspect of Yin Yoga, as it provides ample time to fully release and obtain maximum benefits.
