I absolutely loved this class. I noticed that this is the only Yin class available on this site. Is there any other classes similar to this?

first time at this site. have no bolster and easy made one with the instructions about the blanket and the ties! the sessio was great, I feel so centered now. I was moving a lot to find the right posture, felt a bit that I did not do it 'right'but I feel bright and quiet now. So I should have done something right! also the hour went by so quick!
thank you very much for posting this on line :-)

Have done this a few times and am always amazed at how hot I become in pigeon (a fave pose)...and in today's practice, some nausea. Normally not a fan of props but it's easy to incorporate them here. By nature I'm too anxious to endure long holds but use this to work through that, achieve focus along with deeper, more relaxed breathing. But just as I achieve that state the transitions are too fast which cause a bit of agitation and I lose the 'sink.' Also, the lack of...perhaps...a guided meditation in a protracted savasana is unfortunate. Thanks to all who provide the great variety of videos on DYWM.

Thank you!

I'm a beginner, but I already love Yin Yoga. I've learned through therapy the importance of mindfulness and breathing, Yin Yoga take that to a new level.
My body won't allow me to do a couple poses...pigeon? Ha ha, it will be a long time before I can move like that. But it doesn't matter, I just substitute another pose that is in my range. The class as a whole is still of great value to me. Thanks!

Love this video

I am a 23 year old intermediate/advanced yogi who has recently found a love for yin yoga. I have suffered from clinical depression and extreme social anxiety disorder for over 10 years and as a result am heavily medicated, which I do not like. I discovered this video about a month ago and have been practicing it 3-4 times per week. In the past month I have been able to halve my medication as I have been having less and less panic attacks. I credit this to this video. Anytime I am feeling anxious or need to just calm down I go to this video (instead of a pill) and it works every time! The ability to meditate and stay in a posture for 5 minutes was something I never thought I would have the mental capacity to do and now this hour is my favourite part of the day.
I just wanted to thank David so much for having this site open and free for everyone (love your videos as well David) and to Anastasia for posting this video.

Good. Really Good.

Coming home from work today, my mind was numb from allergy meds and scattered from trying to mind three children (I am a nanny). Residual shock from events several days past and fear that has made it much harder to be alone basically meant I was in complete shutdown. It took twenty minutes to go from deciding to do this video to actually navigating to this page, because I kept zoning out. With this video, I was able to change that cluttered emptiness in my mind into peaceful strength and patience. Thank you for creating and posting this video.
