Yin is a slower paced practice using longer holding times in postures to allow for a deeper stretch which can release blocked energy and improve circulation. Working with the same meridians (energy pathways) as acupuncture, Yin nourishes the natural range of motion of the joints, and affects the organs in the process. Restoring this energy within us has a direct impact on our psychological states, encouraging ease of being and promoting the foundation for authentic meditation to occur.
