Lovely stretches

This class is a series of lovely stretches. When in child's pose, Anastasia's voice was quite garbled and after that the music was too loud for her soft voice.

Just what I needed

This was a perfect practice for letting go. I have a very yang practice and needed to sink deep into my hips and back and let go of some stuck emotions that I had felt building up. In child's pose, everything flooded out - my poor yoga mat was soaked with tears but it felt so good and so necessary to just let go.
Thank you so much - your lovely healing voice and energy really helped me feel nurtured, which is what I needed in order to release.

...at the end of a hot day !! Thanks Anastasia ! The sound could be a little better though, it's saturating when you are close to the microphone.

Note for people with knee issues

Great class - just wanted to point out for people with knee issues looking at this class, there is an extended child's pose, so I found it handy to have my small cushions ready for under and/or behind my knees for extra padding and reduced compression on the joints.

Perfectly peaceful relaxing

I have been looking for something like this. A lot of the yin videos on youtube are much too strenuous. I made the bolster out of two blankets and it worked wonderfully. Thank-you!

I was quite sick for over a week and was not able to get my yoga in ( had a sinus infection and found that even just a downward dog caused my head to want to explode). After a week and a half of no yoga I noticed I was having some pretty sever sciatic discomfort and found this practice and have been doing it once to twice a day for a few days and am just about good as new! Thank you Anastasia!
