I am not exaggerating when I say that this class was transformative. It was the key to solving a lifetime of neck pain and tension. Now when I feel that familiar pain coming on, all I have to do is this class and the pain and tension go away. Nyk is a wonderful teacher and her other classes are excellent as well.

Good medicine!! Really helps to ease tension in the neck and shoulders as advertised. I love Nyk's yin videos, and I'm so happy to have just discovered this particular video. It works miracles.

I’m a runner and martial artist and often end up with neck tension that can lead to migraines. This practice made a huge difference in releasing those muscles. Thank you so much!

Thank you for such a lovely neck & shoulder release, Nyk. Mine were so SO tight that I could hardly bear it, and this class has given me the release I desperately needed. Awesome. Namaste. x

Thank for the video! The asanas were helful although I would've been happier with more of them. Found it too slow for my own pace. :)

Yin Yoga is slow. If you aren't familar with Yin Yoga I have a whole video on here where I break it down and how it's different than movement forms of of Yoga. Sometimes the challenge in Yoga is to give ourselves permission to slow down.

After nine hours straight of kitchen work I really needed this, it really helped with the pain and tension in my neck, back and shoulders. Thank you so much!

Wow! I always have a tight and tense neck/right shoulder situation, and I feel freer after this short practice than in a long time. Thank you Nyk! I also switched my legs up every 2-3 exercises.

Lovely practice. I enjoyed it very much. During the seated poses I changed my leg position with every pose, which added a lot of comfort for me.

FANTASTIC for tight upper arms and shoulder. I broke my upper arm (long ago!), but have always notice some tightness in my right arm/shoulder. This calm and deep exercises were very useful. I can feel the change. GRACIAS!

Just one comment, I had a hard time with my lower back all throught the sit sequence....Is there anything that can be done to release the tension in my lower back
