Yin Yoga is the relaxed practice of floor postures held for three to five minutes at a time.

It is the ideal compliment to more muscular or "Yang" forms of Yoga. A Yin practice emphasizes the connective tissues of the hips, thighs, pelvis and lower spine. In this way it prepares the body and the mind for longer meditation practices. By drawing the student`s awareness away from the muscles and deeper into the bones, a deep level of relaxed focus is achieved.
