Yin Yoga is a slower practice where poses are passively held for a longer period of time. It targets the deep, dense connective tissues such as ligaments and joints in the body rather than focusing on the superficial muscles. This helps to maintain joint health, mobility, and range of motion.
Yang Yoga refers to more active & vigorous practice. This works on the (Yang) muscles and blood flow, building strength, stamina, and flexibility. Yang styles of yoga are those with rhythm and repetition like Vinyasa Flow.
By combining the two styles of yoga, Yin/Yang yoga improves energy and fitness while promoting relaxation and healing.
