By practicing in a passive way and using gravity for a deeper extension into the muscles and joints, you can melt away the stress in your life, learn to abandon resistance and tension, and feel refreshed and new. Yin Yoga provides a more intense stretching of the tissues that surround the moving parts of the body by holding deep postures for three to five minutes. The Yin class starts off with a short meditation session to complement the relaxing physical aspect.
