In traditional Hatha yoga classes the muscles are the target, but in yin yoga it's all about targeting the connective tissues such as the joints, ligaments and fascia of the body that normally are not exercised very much. These poses are very different from other yoga poses and most of them are done on the floor. Some might look similar but the intention will be different. It involves stressing and strengthening tissues thereby increasing range of motion to the joints and energy flow throughout the body. We will let gravity ease us deep into a pose, holding for 3 to 10 minutes. Soft music, mellow lighting, helps make the experience meditative. This is a different kind of challenge - like exercise, but different. Think of this as innersize!
