At the age of thirty the body begins the aging process, where connective tissue tightens from years of strengthening and overuse. Tight connective tissue creates tension and stress on joints, affecting how we move, and potential for injury. Yin yoga addresses tension allowing the connective tissue to become more pliable. Yin is known to be healing to the body and mind.
