The deep release you experience from yin yoga can stay with you for days, and Sarah's choice of yoga poses for this 60-minute yin yoga class are fantastic. As you can expect, deep stretches can be hard to do, but they provide the greatest sense of relief once you're done. Sarah helps you get through it with her gentle, encouraging guidance and her soft smile. Note: to learn how to make your own bolster at home, click here.

This is a great class - the hour flew by. It is definitely challenging and a great way to get rid of all the emotional gunk and over use of those hip and hamstring muscles. Will definitely be part of my regular rotation.

Besides nearly dislocating both legs during frog pose, this was a terrific way to open up the hips and to soothe a few aches i had. Great video!

Fantastic class. First time doing yin. My hips have never felt so deeply stretched. Is it normal to feel a little achy coming out of the stretches? :)

The deep stretches and focus on hips and hamstrings make this video a perfect routine after a long ride! Def going to add this to my list of regular videos.

I have an on and off relationship with Yoga. I was practicing quite often before I started working full time. Now that the new year has arrived I felt that it would be a great opportunity to sharpen up my practice again. Thank you for the wonderful video!! Namaste.

My hips have become really tight with back and emotional struggles. I followed Sarah's suggestion to place one leg back and flat to ease pain. She said she would let me know when to swap. This didn't happen. To gain balance I had to put the class back. Very annoying when she had got me so relaxed! Great class apart from that. Loved the hamstring stretch! Want to try it again when hips are a little more at ease :)

This was my first practice after a long hiatus from yoga... My life has become more sedentary, and hip and back issues have been plaguing me. I was reminded of how these problems pretty much disappeared when I was regularly taking yoga classes, so I found this website and said "let's see..." It's crazy how doing so little can make you feel so much! and Pigeon on the first day... yikes! but I breathed through it and was able to finish feeling good. I'm back! and looking forward to healing in 2016

I'm working on opening up a severely imbalanced set of hips. This practice today has made me feel tremendous, and very hopeful for future progress. Thank you.
