Yin is based on ancient Chinese philosophies and Taoist principles which believe there are pathways of energy that run through our bodies. By stretching and deepening into poses, we are opening up any blockages and releasing that energy to flow freely.
A yin sequence is not to move through postures freely, postures could be held for three to five minutes a time. The aim is to access the deeper tissues, and many of the postures focus on areas that encompass a joint (such as the hips, sacrum, and spine, to name a few).
