Yin Yoga is a slower-paced, more meditative version of the physical yoga practice.n Yin yoga, the poses are held for a long period of time (typically three to five minutes or longer) to target the connective tissues (such as the ligaments) rather than focusing on the muscles. As a result, the asanas are more passive holds, with little muscular engagement. This practice is primarily a floor practice with poses designed to target the hips, low back and pelvis. While this practice is available to all levels of practitioner, Yin is not the same as Restorative yoga. Students may want to wear comfortable loose fitting clothing. Pajamas welcomed!
