♠ Holds in each pose for a while with the “edge” you feel, which is not too deep or too little

♠ Stimulates deep connective tissues to soften/moisten/strengthen them and stimulates qi (prana, life force) in meridians (energy pathways)

♠ Compared to restorative yoga, yin yoga sometimes/often brings some physical/emotional/mental discomforts and practice to watch them without trying to change anything

♠ Can develop mindfulness
