Yin is the energy of surrender, receiving and nurturing. Yin Yoga encourages long, relaxing holds to release fascia, muscles and deeper connective tissues like tendons and ligaments. This encourages circulation, which results in better nourishment and detoxification of these hardworking body elements. But the greatest benefit comes from the way Yin helps divert our energy from the sympathetic nervous system (fight-or-flight, vigilance) into the parasympathetic (nurturing, organ-maintaining) nervous system. The perfect way to relieve stress and gain perspective. Come find your zen again.
