Yin Yoga is a slow paced practice, where the poses are held for longer periods of times in developed by Paul Grilley
as a way to create more balance in hectic life styles of modern day. Yin targets the connective tissue, fascia and tendons and works on a deeper physical level. It is an amazing compliment to more dynamic and muscular practices of running, spinning, swimming and yang types of yoga. In general yoga works with the idea of opposites, and the yoga practice most of us know is the yang type, it is fast paced and works the muscle tissue and the cardio vascular system. Yin yoga works on cooling the system down, stretching into areas that are difficult to get to and which requires time, patience and determination. Through the stillness and the long held poses, space and freedom is created within the body – and essentially the mind.
