first time at this site. have no bolster and easy made one with the instructions about the blanket and the ties! the sessio was great, I feel so centered now. I was moving a lot to find the right posture, felt a bit that I did not do it 'right'but I feel bright and quiet now. So I should have done something right! also the hour went by so quick!
thank you very much for posting this on line :-)

Hit/miss...

Have done this a few times and am always amazed at how hot I become in pigeon (a fave pose)...and in today's practice, some nausea. Normally not a fan of props but it's easy to incorporate them here. By nature I'm too anxious to endure long holds but use this to work through that, achieve focus along with deeper, more relaxed breathing. But just as I achieve that state the transitions are too fast which cause a bit of agitation and I lose the 'sink.' Also, the lack of...perhaps...a guided meditation in a protracted savasana is unfortunate. Thanks to all who provide the great variety of videos on DYWM.

Excellent

I found this to be extremely relaxing. I always struggle with my breath, and the slow pace of this class allowed me to focus on it much better. Thank you!

hi Trish, Thanks for the

hi Trish,
Thanks for the feedback. Poses are typically held for 3-5 minutes in a Yin class - beyond that we would consider it a deep yin class and definitely not for beginners. Glad you found a way to make it work for yourself!
