Yin Yoga aims to help move the flow of energy in the body, and to maintain mobility in the deep connective [fascial] tissue. It combines the use of passive and active postures, breathing techniques, and meditation. Classes typically offer a physically passive practice, and some poses can be held to up to 5 minutes. Props can be used to help support the practice. Many of the poses focus on the hips and the lower back, as these areas of the body require extra care and attention. Yin Yoga postures strengthen the body, enabling practitioners to sit for long periods of time during meditation.

Yoga Nidra, or Yogic Sleep, provides benefits such as deep relaxation, withdrawal of the senses, releases body tension, helps with sleep, brings connection to the self and the subconscious. Practicing yoga nidra brings you to the conscious state between being asleep and awake.
A recent study showed that while meditation and yoga nidra were both effective in reducing anxiety and stress, yoga nidra seemed to be more effective in reducing anxiety. The study also suggested that yoga nidra can be a useful tool in reducing both cognitive and physiological symptoms of anxiety. https://health.clevelandclinic.org/what-is-yoga-nidra/
