What is Yin-Yoga ?
Yoga is so much more than stretching. Today, most forms of yoga focus on working the muscular ""Yang"" tissues of the body through dynamic, active flows.Yang yoga styles, such as Vinyasa or Ashtanga, focus on building strength, fitness, and flow with rhythm and repetition. Their sequences are more dynamic and mainly attend to stimulating the muscles through proper alignment.
Yin yoga on the other hand is a unique, nourishing form of yoga which allows us to work on the deeper layers of the body (""Yin tissues""). Yin targets our connective tissues such as joints and ligaments, organs, our fascia, energy meridians, and even our bones are stimulated. The shape and alignment of a pose do not matter in Yin, making this form of yoga accessible to any body. Literally. We do not use the body to get into the pose, we use the pose to get into our body. Yin invites us to listen to the signals of our body and truly feel what is going on.
