Mei Ling Ellis instructs the following:
Yin yoga is a practice that is designed help you find stillness in both the body and mind as it increases flexibility. It is a deep practice where poses are held for longer periods of time. Yin yoga works the deep connective tissues of the body-the tendons, ligaments, cartilage and fascia. This practice is especially restorative for the joints and muscles and is a great compliment to faster moving practices like power vinyasa.
