Every meditator knows the pain of stiff knees and an aching back. By stretching the connective tissue, Yin Yoga conditions you to sit longer—and more comfortably.
Understanding Yin Yoga
Yin Yoga is a form of yoga that focuses on achieving deep relaxation and flexibility of the soft tissues of the body, such as joints, tendons, and muscles. Unlike other forms of yoga, Yin Yoga poses are held for longer periods, often for about 3-5 minutes. This allows the body to relax deeply and affect the soft tissues, while at the same time enhancing concentration and seeking inner peace.
