Yin yoga is a slower-paced style of yoga that allows for one to dedicate time to sit with their thoughts and consciously focus on their mindfulness.
Yin yoga focuses on being intentionally slower so that the body has time to recognize how it feels in the poses. This practice is going to help you stretch and lengthen specific muscles and rarely-used tissues, while at the same time targeting your breath and bring attention to the discomfort while sitting with your thoughts.
Yin yoga is an excellent practice for beginners and experts alike. The pace allows for you to acknowledge all of the benefits of each individual pose without having to worry about transitioning to the next.
