Thank you, this was a great session. I appreciated you showing what would be needed and the alternatives if these were not readily available. It was joyful to do this. As with some other videos it would be useful to have a closing to the practice, I lay in corpse pose for some time before I got up to check if it was and maybe that was the point, that I take as long as I needed without placing judgement over weather or not this is how long I should be doing it for. Namaste

Your videos are very helpful for those of us who love yin yoga and can't get to a class. Can you pleas tell me the author and source of the poem you read during the Sinking into stillness video? I believe the author you mentioned was Bapucci.

Thank you this was just what I needed tonight! I am in day 17, of quarantine for the Corona Virus, with a minimum of 27 more in front of me. This was the day that I had a melt down. Depressed, tired, no energy, headache, wasn't able to stay positive. It actually took every bit of will power, that I could muster up, to get on the mat but it is imperative that I do yoga during this time frame. I chose this class and am so glad that I did. It was the perfect way to calm down, relax, and just let it go. The 4-5 minutes of holding the poses was perfect for my muscles to calm down and finally relax into the pose instead of holding onto the stress. Great class.

This is a great yin class. It would be perfect if she didn’t talk about other things during poses.

Dear DYWM, Please would you consider putting this one on youtube? Only sometimes I can only get the classes on youtube and this is in my opinion the best yin class on the site, I'd love to do it every day for a while!
