What is Yin Yoga?
Enjoy the feelings of rejuvenation and steadiness that arise from a YIN yoga practice as you slow down and move from noise to silence. In our modern world, we have a lot of things that can cause stress and an online YIN yoga class can help you move from agitation to calm, and from complexity to simplicity. Explore a relaxing, slower-paced yoga practice that is challenging in a different way.
Yin yoga helps to stimulate the deep connective tissues through long-held, passive stretching, which dramatically improves flexibility, restores joint range of motion, and cultivates peace of mind. Most of the asanas are done while sitting or lying down so it can be a useful practice when you’re feeling tired or overworked. Beginning and experienced yogis alike will feel nurtured, free and light after this class.
YIN yoga online classes are for anyone who needs to reset the body and the mind, not through a stimulating way but working with the embers to slowly burn away tension and stress. This style of class is also good for athletes who need time to help heal their bodies and give the muscles a break while lengthening the connective tissues that can sometimes cause soft-tissue injuries. There is a range of class lengths to suit the time you have available so roll out your mat and enjoy yin’s power to rejuvenate, mind, and body.
