Yang to Yin

Beginner II
This is a more challenging class than Satiya's typical offering. It's grounded in a gentle, slow flow but features a few beginner to intermediate poses. She begins the moderately paced Yang to Yin practice with standing poses to get your body warmed up, then helps you work your way down to the floor where the postures become longer, the breath becomes deeper and you slowly begin to settle into stillness.

This worked well for my bf who has been practicing for about a year and is slowly becoming more flexible. It's a good post-beginner I challenge!

A wonderful shape filled stretchy practice. I find it difficult to straighten my leg with a yogi toe hold (my arms are shorter than my legs) for the standing and lying down pose. A strap helps. Maybe over time.....
Thank you Satiya for your calm guidance

Enlightening ways to get into some shapes, with attention and guidance. Excellent. Very very very good class for me.

I really enjoyed this. I love the pose where we take our outstretched legs to one side and then the other. This slow movement, for me, meant using my core to bring the legs back to centre. Your instruction is very clear and calming. I continue to struggle with one leg poses but I just used my wall for balance as I didn't want to interrupt the calm in this practice gave me.

Love the pace, Satiya, and your voice. Great practice after raking leaves for hours. I'm nicely stretched and rebalanced. The firelog pose was a bit difficult, so I adapted with crossed ankles. Love the straight legs together going up then to side whilst lying on the mat; good stretch for something in the side, was it quadratus lumborum? Cheers.

This class is truly inspired. I left this class feeling calmer in mind and body. A perfect example of how yoga is union between body and mind. Thank you, Satiya!

Great practice, Satiya! Exactly what I needed on a day when menstruating and feeling stiff, needing a balance between movement and stillness. Thank you. Namaste.

Love the description of warrior reaching forward and arm overhead - really gets your core and spine working. I found this to be relaxing and challenging all at once and throughout the practice. Thank you!

I really loved the warrior reaching forward as well and I will try to incorporate. That's the great thing about DYWM - you get so many different tips and movements from the various teaching methods. And then you can find the one that works best for your body and mind.

This was a lovely, well thought out practice! Love the contrast between the Yang
and Yin segments. I especially enjoyed the Yin part of her class.
