That was pretty awesome. I have difficulty staying still without guidance; this is one reason I miss in person yoga. I feel like I am wanting little more. Maybe Yin Yoga for Tight Hips remix, parte dos? Enjoyed seeing the shapes on multiple bodies.

I enjoyed Nyk’s direction very much. I felt connected even via “net”. The practice itself, Yin Yoga (my first time) was a positive one. Thankyou Nyk.

As I hadn't been doing much yet today I started with a gentle sun salute to reconnect my body and mind before starting this class. Perfect. Thank you.

I enjoyed the stretching, however I found it a little strange to go straight into what can generally be a very intense pose, without any warm up. I did this class first thing in the morning and found it hard to go straight into it.

yes when you are new to Yin that can be confusing. Warming up doesn't affect the fascia and Yin Yoga's super power is Deep Fascia. Also if you are finding the pose intense then you are doing too much!
Sounds like you could be new to Yin Yoga?
I highly reccomend practicing with my Yin Yoga for Beginners video here on Do Yoga With Me. It offers a very detailed explanation of Yin Yoga, how it's differnt and the Yin Yoga Practice Guidelines.
