Yin yoga exercises tendons, ligaments, and fascia—the vital connective tissues not usually reached in traditional yoga classes. Tendons, ligaments, and fascia require slower movement and sustained positions. When you relax into these selective seated and reclining postures, your muscles are kept soft and you gently exercise the deep layers of the less elastic connective tissues. At the same time, these yin poses help lubricate joints by stimulating production of synovial fluid. Props are available whenever needed. You will feel relaxed and more aware of your body!
