Yin yoga is based on some old Chinese body exercises and meridian theories. As the dynamic yang yoga concentrates on muscles the yin yoga also gives the joints, tendons and energy orbits the needed attention. The movements in yin yoga affect in the parts of the body where the connective tissue is the densest, for example in the back and hip areas. The positions, asanas, have an opening effect and are held for several minutes at the time.
The long and deep stretch-like asanas hydrate the connective tissues which causes the body to recover naturally and the movements become less painful. Yin yoga also boosts metabolism and energy gain. The yin yoga asanas won't focus on exessive streching and are done by using different assistance equipment to ensure the total relaxation of the muscles. The asanas can be modified to individual needs which makes the class suitable for everyone. If you have any physical limits, please let the instructor know so they can help you customise the asanas for you.
