Guy invites you to move from active to relaxed, from warm to cool and from busy to calm in his Yang-into-Yin slow flow practice. It begins with a series of warming movements, flows into several shorter standing poses and then drops down to the floor for a juicy sequence of longer held Yin poses. This is a great practice to help dissipate the busyness of your day and drop into relaxation.

Equipment: Block, Bolster, Blankets
Style: Hatha Yoga, Slow Flow, Yin Yoga, Yoga for Seniors

This was a wonderful contrast of yang and yin, giving me a completely different take on the practice. I’ve usually associated the yang side with a flow from asana to asana. Here though, the energy for the yang is conscious muscular effort to strongly hold a pose. Nice!

A great end to a wonderful 14 day challenge - this one was surprisingly demanding, but very rewarding - I felt sooooo relaxed at the end. Love your teaching style too Guy. Like a few others I will be taking away the phrase "Don't panic, it's only yoga!" Thanks :-)

What a great transition from Yang to Yin! I do love the variation of Warrior 1 and not spilling the teacups - great visuals and holding these poses really gave me time to engage the muscles and finally let go. Thank you!

Thank you Guy for this Yang to Yin practice, which I've found myself returning to again and again over the past few months.
Om Shanti

I've thoroughly enjoyed Guy's 14 day challenge. Some days were more challenging than others, every day made me feel good. Love his style and speed. In fact I've enjoyed it so much so I'm going to do it all over again.

Very interesting to explore Yang and Yin in one class. Thank you,I enjoyed it especially the Yang (must be my mood today).

Thanks Guy for a great two week challenge. The poses were just challenging enough, not too hard, not too easy. I like your suggestion, "Don't panic, it's just yoga." It makes me feel more relaxed when I'm struggling with a pose.
