There are soooo many variations of yoga. We have the Hatha, Vinyasa, Ashtaga, Bikirm, the list goes on, to the obscure for example anyone of Yoga raves?? Harmonica Yoga, Karaoke Yoga, Laughing Yoga, which sounds amazing to me!!( find more unconventional Yoga here)
and then there is Yin Yoga, the softer Om Shanti of yoga...
A slower style that includes many meditative poses, promoting mental and physical awareness. Calming, lowers stress and increases stamina are just a few benefits of Yin yoga.

Yin yoga targets the deep connective tissues and the fascia that covers the body. This type of yoga helps regulate the flow of energy in the body, lubricating the joints and helping flexibility.
A great practice for coping with stress, getting a deeper relaxation and it helps you to sit for meditations.
In Yin, you relax in the posture, softening the muscles that can be held from 2-5 mins to up to 20 mins for advanced yogis, it's a more meditative approach and in return you ultimately learn to accept what is.
