Yin Yoga is slow-paced style of yoga with poses held for longer periods of time—typically three to five minutes or longer. Yin yoga poses focus on deep relaxation and restoration. A yin yoga sequence is designed to work on the connective tissue. Thus, some of the well-known yin yoga benefits are increased circulation in the joints and improved flexibility.

As a practice, yin yoga is designed to improve the flow of chi (the vital energy of the body) through the energetic channels (or meridians) to improve overall emotional well-being, immunity, and organ health.
When combined with a more active and physical sequence, the practice is then known as Yin Yang yoga. Traditionally, yin and yang are thought of as complementary, not opposite. Thus, balancing the active and relaxing components of your practice can be a good way to create balance and harmony.

Out of balance? Feeling depleted

Yin Yoga

What to expect

• A slow-paced, gentle practice. Sequences vary slightly but incorporate many of the same postures.
• Each pose is held for three to five minutes or longer
• Careful attention is placed on your breath to facilitate release, relaxation, and letting go.
• The postures held for extended times may feel uncomfortable or challenging initially. This is ok.

Suggestions from The House of Yoga

• Be patient with your body and practice.
• Slow down your breathing to help facilitate awareness and relaxation.
• Because our bodies are not used to holding the postures for so long, you may experience some intensity, discomfort or find the practice challenging, initially. Just soften internally, breathe, and trust in the benefits of the yin approach.
• When you feel burned out, Yin yoga can be a wonderful practice for restoration.
• Enjoy. Be patient. Be curious. Breathe. And have fun.
