Yin Yoga Benefits

The benefits of yin yoga

What is yin yoga?

Yin yoga is not a modern style of yoga, it is a style of yoga in which the poses are held for longer periods of time. 

This style of yoga has been around since the beginning, in the 1980’s a man named Paul Grilley saw a presentation on the television which showed the range of flexibility and motion an individual had in one of their classes. 

Once attending one of these classes Paul then started practicing this style of yoga, holding positions for five to ten minutes. 

He found that he saw quick improvement in the range of motions of his students that were practicing yin yoga.
