Yin yoga works with the deeper tissues within the body; deep fascial networks, joints and ligaments. It is a
yielding, allowing and nourishing practice that works by encouraging gentle releasing for extended periods
of time. Props such as bolsters and blankets can be used to support the body in these longer holds.
Exercising the tissues in this way helps to regain space and openness in the joints. With encouragement to
practice mindfully Yin yoga can also help to reduce stress. A yin activity is based on finding stillness &
cooling the body .
