Yin Yoga targets the Fascia / connective tissues, such as the ligaments, bones, even the joints of the body that are not commonly exercised in more active styles of Yoga; generally of the hips, pelvis, and lower spine
This Yoga is suitable for all practicing levels of students, with Yin Yoga being a great complement to the dynamic and muscular (Yang) styles of Yoga available; and other physical training that emphasize internal heat and the lengthening and contracting of our muscles.
This more passive style of Yoga can be quite challenging due to the long duration the poses are held for; spending time in the poses from anywhere between three to twenty minutes. Yin and Yang tissues respond quite differently to being exercised; you need to experience this to really know what Yin Yoga is all about. After you have experienced it, even just once, you will realize that this practice is excellent to balance all levels of physical and mental exercise.
