The Yin style of yoga is a practice suitable for students of all levels of experience. Practitioners are offered an opportunity to relax, slow down and come back to balance. Many of the poses are seated, supine or prone and are held with muscles relaxed. The focus is on the parts of our body that lie closest to our core, specifically the bones and connective tissue. Remaining muscularly passive for periods of time gently stretches dense connective tissue of the lower back, hips and spine, which may otherwise become stiff and less mobile as we age. There is a focus on the breath, being present in the moment, relieving tension and letting go, allowing increased circulation and power into our bodies.
