What is Yin Yoga?
Yin Yoga originates from the Taoist principle of Yin and Yang, two completely opposite natures complimentary to each-other. Yin Yoga is a powerful, slow and subtle form of yoga which offers dipper impact to tendons and muscles with its meditative impact. In this form of yoga, asanas are combined with pranayama and mediation with a passive relaxation along with deep opening. The postures in this form of yoga are mostly practiced on the floor and held for longer duration (almost 2 to 5 minutes), which is aimed at deeper impact on body tissues, tendons and muscles while connecting the soul through a meditative approach. It is more sort of being in a posture and letting go of different emotions to delve into a more intense connection with the soul. Yin Yoga works with muscles and connective tissues which are considered almost 90% resistance to the flexibility of human body. With its longer duration of pose-hold and practice of breath control, Yin Yoga offers a relatively deeper impact while guiding in the direction of complete calmness. Asanas in Yin Yoga are relatively similar to that of Indian Hatha Yoga but practiced differently to offer a completely different meaning to relaxation and energy harvesting.
