Yin yoga is a quiet, gentle (yin) kind of yoga that has a calming, soothing and cooling effect. Yin yoga has a nourishing and strengthening effect on the connective tissue in the body: the fascia, ligaments and the tendons. The postures are held for a relatively long duration. Yin yoga is ideal for those people who wish to remain as flexible and mobile as possible with advancing age. It is the perfect antidote for a hectic, modern lifestyle, which helps us to learn to simply be. It is also an ideal kind of yoga to end the day in a relaxed manner and to prepare for an excellent night of sleep.
After one hour of Yin yoga you feel completely grounded into your body again and you are totally relaxed.

In Yin yoga we do not strive to create strength or stability. There are hardly any standing postures. Most of the exercises are done close to the floor, sitting or lying down. Yin yoga is sometimes referred to as “Liquid Yoga”.
In Yin yoga we gently stretch and relax the deeper layers of our muscles and our connective tissues, the fascia, tendons and ligaments. That’s why Yin yoga postures mainly concentrate on those parts of the body where a lot of connective tissues are present: the trunc and the (upper) legs. The rhythm is slow, and we remain relatively long in the postures, sometimes for up to several minutes. The purpose is to let go slowly. Your flexibility wil gradually improve, not by active stretching, but by abandoning yourself and by feeling how your muscles and tendons little by little release their tensions to attain a deeper level of relaxation.
Yin yoga is the perfect opposite of “doing”.
