Yin Yoga For Runners
Inhale, Exhale… Run!
Yin yoga is a slower-paced style of yoga. Yin poses are a series of passive floor poses that are typically held for 3-5 minutes. These poses enhance the range of motion in the joints by working beneath the superficial muscles to target the connective tissues of the body. The Yin approach to yoga works with the body in a deep and slow way through the practice of postures, breath, mental focus and awareness. This practice is gentle, yet challenging. Each pose is held for several minutes to liberate the body’s chronic holding patterns, relieve pain, and help recapture ease of movement.
Yin Yoga is for all levels. Beginners are welcome!
