Yin yoga is a restorative/therapeutic style of yoga which offer students the opportunity to unwind and go deeper into their bodies. The majority of the classes is spent in seated or reclined postures which are held for approximately 3-5 minutes. These classes aim to release tension in the fascia, connective tissue, joints, and muscles, often built up over a lifetime. Yin yoga is great for students who want to balance out busy lifestyles, increase flexibility and is also great for those who are new to yoga or who may be working with injuries.
