YIN YOGA

Yin Yoga is a very slow and gentle but also very deep penetrating style of Yoga that is a perfect complimentary practice to Ashtanga/Vinyasa Yoga or any other form of “yang” like, energetic, physical practice.
Yin Yoga has a variety of incredible benefits:

On a physical level:
Fascia, a connective tissue that surrounds all our muscles, bones and organs and forms our ligaments and tendons, can tighten around weaker parts of the body (resulting from previous injury, postural problems or emotional trauma), causing this body part to feel tight and difficult to open up through a regular Yoga practice.
These tissues need a different approach to being gently stressed, soften and worked out. Yin Yoga uses a variety of postures, mostly on the floor, that can be held for longer periods of time, using gravity rather than muscle force, achieving a therapeutic affect on joints, ligaments and tendons.

On an energetic level:
Each posture also works on an energetic level on the Nadis (or Meridians) of the body, which are thought to be situated inside the fascia, and can have a similar effect to a Shiatsu treatment or Acupuncture.
Chakra work can also be done through Yin Yoga.

On a meditative level:
Each posture is held for several minutes. The nature of the postures and the time spent in them provide a great opportunity to practice mindfulness, breath awareness and meditation.
