Best yin class

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!

Perfect remedy

I don't think I had done this practice before, and I have not done a yin practice for at least two weeks-a month. This practice
was exactly what I needed on the first day of my cycle, after having an intensely emotional last few days. All the quotes, meditations, and poetry Anastasia recites throughout were nice little grounding reminders. This was also a good reminder for myself to make more time for yin yoga!

Thank you, Anastasia, for this great yin class. The positions are basic but very well chosen, stretching all your body. The explanations are clear and calm, which helps concentrating. I liked the emphasis in pranayama.

Sometimes I have a hard time turning my brain off, or at least down to a whisper, and this class really did it. I am relaxed, re-energized, calm and feel wonderful.

This was a beautiful class, and it is good to know that the long stretches are helping to release chi. I loved the poem by Bapuji. It was very moving.

Thank you for the amazing

This was wonderful! My husband always tells me I live too much in the yang, and that it would be good for my mind to get into the yin state much more often. I tend to do yoga with more movement, but I think style might turn out to be one of my favorites. Thank you!
