Yin yoga stretches and targets both the deep connective tissues between the muscles, and the fascia throughout the body. The aim is to increase circulation in the joints and improve flexibility. Because of the slow nature of the practice and focus on breathing, yin yoga also gives us the opportunity to experience a meditative state.
In Yin Yoga, postures are held from one to 10 minutes. The effect of gravity, over time, stretches and compresses the denser tissues, pushing out toxins, pulling in nutrients, and tugging on the joints, bones and fascia (connective tissue), especially in the spine, low back, hips, and thighs. Relaxing the muscles allows the joints to stretch toward their complete range of motion.
With consistent practice, we experience greater ease of motion with less effort. We feel more relaxed and lighter when we free up adhesion's and “gluing” that solidify the fascia, due to aging, injury, and lifestyle. Sometimes we even become taller as our alignment and the denser tissues respond to stretching. We also may notice more peaceful moments throughout our day as we learn to slow down and breathe.
