Hatha Vinyasa (Yang) Yoga, the more familiar “active” form of yoga, builds strength and flexibility in muscles and tendons, while also strengthening bones. Practicing mindfully allows us to listen to our body and be guided by our body’s wisdom.
You may be less familiar with Yin Yoga, which targets the connective tissue (fascia) and joints mainly in the lower body. The long-held, static poses are designed to counteract stiffness, separate adhesions and increase mobility. See Yin Yoga Factsheet for more details.
Studies have shown both Yin and Yang Yoga can bring numerous other health and wellness benefits too, including reduced blood pressure and stress levels, improved hormonal and emotional balance, greater focus, and an increased sense of well-being.
