I'm very thankful for the instruction. I needed the explanation. Looking forward to more poses. Nicely done.

Thank you, I enjoyed this. I did find though that there was too much instruction in the first half which didn't allow me to find the peace in the first pose but in the second half there was more space for peace and instruction. I don't know if I could do the class for a second time for that reason. It would almost be better to have an initial pre-pose longer instructional phase.

This is a beginner practice so instructions are key. :-) But we have filmed some more intermediate practices which will have less talking and more silence <3

I agree with you.. too much talking in the first part. I prefer general reminders...breathe.

This is a beginner practice (that's why all the talking ) But we have filmed some more intermediate practices which will have less talking and more silence <3

Thanks so much Nyk! Juuuust what I needed to loosen my super tight hips- I've been missing my yin practice.
I thoroughly enjoyed my first ever class of yours. I'll definitely try and re-visit this once a week.
Thanks you. :-)

Thanks, Nyk! This was a short though entirely sweet class, chock full of relief for my oh-so-tight hips. The best part was being able to quickly set up a couple of mats at a friends home, in response to her comment about having really tight hips. Thanks to the miracle of technology, I pulled my fav yin teacher out of my actual pocket and, BOOM, problem solved. Tight hips, no more... :)
