Yin Yoga works into the connective tissues of the body and very beneficial when practiced regularly to stimulate deep into the ligaments, joints and bones where other style of yoga usually pay more attention to the muscles. This soft approach and passive practice can be quite challenging due to the longer holds in poses. A comfortable room temperature allows the magic to happen within the fascia of your body while the stillness of the postures will result in a relaxation of your nervous system.
Use of props like yoga blocks, yoga bolsters, yoga straps and even home made rolled up towels are useful to help you get into and stay in the pose comfortably. Each Yin Yoga video usually will specify areas of the body that is worked on so you are able to choose your practice for that day by looking at the description of each video.
