A Yin Practice

Beginner I

Satiya guides you through a series of poses that increase flexibility in your hips, legs and spine. She takes her time as she leads you into the deeper, longer-held poses that are typical of yin yoga.

Thank you Satiya for a really good yin-class! I wonder if my sit bones should be touching the ground in all the poses when folding forward? It narrows my movement a lot, having them grounded, and I often find it difficult to know how they can move in seated poses.

I LOVE this practice. Satiya holds a beautiful space - just the right amount of cueing for me. It feels infused with kindness.

Not really a Beginner I. And has more movement/repetition than I expected for a Yin. Well-presented, just not for me ever. :-) I also had concern about the comment that advised it was okay to be past your edge. That could lead to injury, I think.

Thank you so much, Satiya. After doing this class I felt my muscles and mind very relaxed and sweet.
However, I must say that I am rather flexible and I love stretching and, even so, I found some of the postures a bit challenging, specially at the beginning of the class, so I wouldn't qualify this class for "beginners", but "advanced beginners".
Namaste!

This class is such a gem. I have issues with my vestibular system, and a lot of vinyasa classes make me dizzy. This class brings much needed openness and mindfulness to my day. The hip openers are perfect and leave my spine feeling tall, strong, and straight. Thank you, Satiya

Soft and sweet connecting the breath with opening. This created space in my spine very safely and was well directed. Thank you Satiya.

Thank you Satiya for a beautiful, relaxing yoga class. It is lovely to feel stretched and rejuvenated. I agree with many that Satiya has a warm, gentle presence and this is a soothing class.

Thank you Satiya, I feel rejuvenated after this class :) I have a lot of trouble with forward folds, sitting and standing, as well as any leg extensions. I think it is the tightness in my hamstrings, but it could also be that my upper thighs are too weak to handle the postures. Do you have any recommendations for classes and poses that might help me to improve these issues?

Glad to hear that you enjoyed the class. We have plenty of classes that focus on the hamstrings, as well as strength in the hip flexors. Your best best is David's Establishing Core Strength I and II. You can also check out Happy Hamstrings with Fiji McAlpine, A Deep Release for the Hips, Hamstrings and Lower Back with David and Yin Yoga for the Hamstrings with Sarah-Jane. You can find all of them by entering their names in the search box in the top right of the Yoga Classes or Home page.

Great class. I found that the kind of "split" leg position was difficult, but it gave me motivation to be better and hopefully have as good as a split as the instructor of this course. I see myself doing this class again! Thank you

Like Sarah Jane's classes, this is another yin class to treasure. Satiya's soothing pace and voice set the tone for a relatively gentle, albeit sometimes challenging set of poses. The additional time spent in poses really enables the hips and spine to open, so much so that when I lay down into shavasana, my back made a lovely cracking sound that made me realise the class had done some good! Thank you Satiya.

First of all, thank you!
Nobody mention this in the comments, but... Is the class cut? At time 28:27 the video ends, but the teacher was in the middle of the yoga class still.
