Yin yoga targets your deep connective tissues, like your fascia, ligaments, joints, and bones. It’s slower and more meditative, each pose is held for 3-5 minutes. Yin yoga is meant to challenge you physically and mentally, you will feel discomfort in some postures but this discomfort is meant to be healing. The healing process happens after the practice, when the tissue is repairing itself. The mental challenge comes from learning how to breath through your discomfort and to accept the sensation into the body. We’re not asking you to endure pain, but to realize the difference between pain and discomfort because there’s a BIG DIFFERENCE. Just as you work Yin tissues and feel “the burn” in your muscles you will learn to feel the right sensation to let you know you’re working your connective tissues. The practice will lengthen connective tissue, increase flexibility, boost circulation and decrease stress.
