An intense and regenerating practice
Yin yoga is inspired by traditional Chinese medicine and Taoist practices in which stretches were held for long periods of time. It refers to “yin” (passivity) in opposition to “yang” (activity), two interconnected and complementary forces in ancient Chinese philosophy.
This yoga style targets the deep connective tissues of the body – the ligaments, joints, bones and the fascia networks. The practice also offers huge mental and emotional benefits.
The extended stretching that characterises this style of yoga relieves tension while the body is working intensely and profoundly. The slower rhythm of these classes compared to dynamic yoga makes them more conducive to introspection.
For this reason, this yoga practice is particularly appropriate for:
- those looking for ways to relax and manage stress;
- people suffering from tension and stiffness in the joints or from physical difficulties.
