Meditative, long held stretches bypass superficial muscle layers to penetrate deep into connective tissues and joints. Passive postures are typically supported with props, and practiced close to the floor to feel fully received and held by gravity, and the earth beneath. In Yin yoga, you'll take mindful time to explore the edges of your tolerance, in a safe, quiet, and deeply healing space. Postures are held for 3 to 5 minutes, sometimes longer.Don't be intimidated by the idea of taking up yoga. Yoga for beginners classes are designed specifically to ease you in gradually into a practice. Yoga poses in beginners classes are easy enough not to put off first timers but just hard enough to stretch your muscles and give you a real workout. What's more there is such a range and variety of yoga styles and instructors for beginners to try that you will certainly find the right yoga practice for you.
