Yin yoga is a slow-paced style of modern yoga with passive floor poses/postures, or asanas, that are held for longer periods of time, i.e. up to five minutes, sometimes longer. Yin Yoga affects that fascia/connective tissue in our bodies. Fascia is a uninterrupted web that surrounds every muscle, wraps within the muscles, covers and intertwines in every organ and envelopes every nerve causing crushing pressure to the pain sensitive areas in the body. Yin yoga will help to lengthen the fascia and create space within the fascial system and in turn decrease pain in the body.
