Yin Yoga is a style of yoga that was developed as a slower, deeper practice. Designed to target areas of the body that more dynamic Yoga practices don’t address.
Think of a dynamic Vinyasa class. These classes are designed to keep your heart rate elevated, transitions from asana to asana are at a brisk pace. Surya Namaskar, also referred to as your flow sequence or Vinyasa is used to connect postures and layer into longer sequences.
In a Yin Yoga practice, each posture is held for anything from 1min to as long as 15min. An average of 8-10 postures will be performed in each class. There is no use of Suyra Namaskar but rather counter postures between asanas. Popular themes include hip and heart ‘opening’ asanas.
Enjoy this Yin Yoga practice in the comfort of your own home, it comes with a transcript and pictures of each posture you will be working on.
All you need is a yoga mat, two blocks and a blanket.
