What’s the difference between Gentle, Yin, and Restorative Yoga?

Gentle Yoga is a slow, sweet and relaxing practice. Gentle Yoga involves very minimal strength-oriented postures, as the intention is to gently dissolve physical tensions and melt away mental stresses.

Yin Yoga is holding a relaxed posture for 3-5 minutes, exerting positive stress on the subtle body tissues as a way to trigger the body’s natural repair response, thus leading to stronger and more supple joints.

Restorative Yoga intends to achieve physical, mental and emotional relaxation with the aid of props. By using props, such as bolsters, blankets and blocks, there is very little effort of any kind. With the feeling of being fully supported, your body and nervous system can relax completely.
