A therapeutic and relaxing practice
Expect long holds in supported, relaxing poses. Yin Yoga offers therapeutic poses to balance the nervous system in order to truly rest and replenish your energy levels. Access states of deep mind and body relaxation through gentle flowing movements and restorative poses. Health benefits of a consistent restorative practice may include lowered blood pressure and blood sugar levels, reduced insomnia or anxiety, balanced menstruation, improved digestion. While “yang” yoga focuses on your muscles, yin yoga targets your deep connective tissues, like your fascia, ligaments, joints, and bones. It’s slower and more meditative, giving you space to turn inward and tune into both your mind and the physical sensations of your body. Because you’re holding poses for a longer period of time than you would in other traditional types of yoga, yin yoga helps you stretch and lengthen those rarely-used tissues while also teaching you how to breathe through discomfort and sit with your thoughts.
