The Yin practices focuses on the body's organs and connective tissues more that the muscular system. Students are seated or lying down on their yoga mats during practice. Yin Yoga is often referred to as the "quiet practice." Holding each pose for 3-5 minutes allows a deep unwinding of tensions in the body's connective tissues, specifically in the ligaments and tendons in the joints and spine. This has the effect of opening the connective tissue to flush out the meridian system which helps Prana or Chi flow through the body. A well-prepared Yin sequence can often create the same benefits to the student as an acupuncture or massage session.
