Yin Yoga is a passive style of yoga practice that uses longer holds in fully supported postures to bring release to connective tissue, specifically ligaments and tendons in the joints and spine. This practice is beneficial to all bodies and all levels, from those seeking ease and mobility due to tightness or chronic pain, as well as yogis looking to improve mobility and provide a complement to more Yang (active) styles of practice.
Yin Yoga – Practiced in a regular temperature room; students may wish to wear long sleeves and socks during practice.
Hot Yin Yoga – This class is practiced in a room heated to 103-105F to further facilitate the elasticity of fascia and connective tissues, as heat increases blood flow to the muscles.
Warm Yin Yoga – Warm classes are heated to 80-85F for a therapeutic atmosphere.
