Many Thanks

Hi, sure!
yin yoga you hold the poses for 3 to 5 minutes, you don’t use many props, and you are taking care of the connective tissue. it does also have benefits on the mind and is a very deep and intense practice. Restorative yoga uses a lot of props, it’s often used to recover from other intense practices, you can hold the poses even 10 minutes or more but it’s never too intense. Restorative yoga is really for everybody and it’s not intense. (by intense in this case I mean painful)
