Yin yoga is the practice of slowing down; an act which is essential for our health and longevity. Holding individual postures for several minutes allows you to relax, release tension, and move deeply into each pose. During this time, you access your bodies deeper connective tissue which helps to increase mobility, improve circulation, strengthen bone tissue, and promote joint hydration.
