YIN yoga increases joint mobility and improves flexibility by applying moderate stress to the body’s connective tissues (tendons, ligaments, and fascia). In a YIN class, expect to hold each posture passively for 2-5 minutes, supported with props and blankets. To create a relaxing environment, YIN classes are dimly lit and use soft music. YIN is practiced at room temperature and classes are suitable for all levels.
