Yin Yoga integrates Indian Hatha yoga and several disciplines from Chinese Taoist tradition with yoga postures and movements. Concentrating on our connective tissues, this particular style aids in clearing our energetic blockages and enhancing circulation. Yin Yoga uses slow stretches in poses of long duration to open up the body and to achieve the release of physical and emotional tension. Over time the practice of yin yoga promotes an increasing range of movement, as well as an overall balance in our system. The practice is challenging without using force or muscular strength. Yin is a wonderful complement to any Yang practice, workout, or running program.
