Yin is a quiet style of yoga practiced mostly lying down or sitting on the floor. Yin yoga has a slow pace, with no rapid movement from one pose to the next. Instead, each pose is held with mild intensity for several minutes. Yin yoga allows the muscles of the body to relax into each pose, with the help of props such as blocks, pillows, mats, and blankets. With the muscles relaxed, the connective tissue is targeted to encourage strength and flexibility over time. Students expect more deep forward bends, twists, hip openers, and shoulder openers. It is a healthful counter-balance to the flow and movement of vinyasa-style yoga.
Yin Yoga is one of Body Moves Active Living group fitness classes. It is taught in-studio. Students who have the Active Living tuition program also have access to the on demand yin yoga recorded classes in the studio’s Private Facebook Group video library.
