A Yin/Yang Flow for Energy

Intermediate I

The yang comes before the yin in this quick, satisfying yoga class. Sarah-Jane first gets you moving through a few sun salutations, then takes your warm body into some deep yin stretches for the hips, back and legs.

I wish Sarah Jane had made more Yin videos- her teaching style is perfect for it

A beautiful, calm stretching and cleansing practice. Your cues are so helpful for feeling where to hold and where to release in each pose. Thank you Sarah.

Today was my first time doing yin/yang yoga. I decided to give it a shot because I find myself struggling to balance these two energies within myself. This class was amazing!! It helped me feel those two energies were brought into a more harmonious balance than usual. Now if only it was longer to fill my entire practice time!! Give me 60 mins please??? <3

Perfect combination of yang with the yin to warm up this Irish lass on an cold, early Summer's day. I really enjoyed the subtle choice of sound/music, the deep release and warming of the body, combined with the knowledgeable commentary. Kumbhaka pranayam was an exceptional and cleansing touch. Thank you so much. Namaste from Ireland.

The hip stretch was brutal for me. I felt really weird but I made it to the end and I felt liberated and fresh. Thank you for this routine. It's really different.

After being too sick to exercise for 3 weeks, I'm just getting back to the mat. This was wonderful to get me back into my breath and to start unstiffening my body. I liked to use of yoga terms to help me learn them.

This is a short and sweet class for stretching and breathing. I like being reminded of proper breathing and this is a good class if you only have a short amount of time like before work! Sarah I love your gentle voice and the options you give.
I am ready to begin my day!
Peace

Thank you so much for this great video. I really liked the variety between the two styles. The shoelace pose was really helpful for my chronically tight hips. I agree with a PP that there were some terms that could have used translation, but it didn't interfere with my enjoyment of the class. Thank you again, my body feels more open and my mind more at peace after doing this class.

Thanks I can no longer afford to go to my wonderful yin yoga class and this was a wonderful start to the day for m e. One day I hope to teach yin yoga to women in prison and in recovery, I think it should be available to everyone. Namaste.

I did this practice first thing in the morning and it was a great way to energize and wake me up for the day!

I get kind of lazy with breathing, but with the detailed explanation, I learn to be more careful with the inhalation/exhalation practice. It really helps to get deeper into the postures! Many Thanks!

The postures were great and have got me energised for starting up Yoga again. Thank you. Although I understand some of the 'yoga' language a lot of others do not and perhaps this could be taken out or reduced somewhat as it could be more time to discuss in layman's terms. I hope this is taken in the kind light I have intended it to be. Thank you for a lovely start x

Remember to wear your hair in a low pony tail and not on top of your head. Kinda hard to do fish pose if you hair is up. Otherwise it was a great quick class that was very calming and relaxing!

This was so hard, I never realised just HOW tight my lower body is. I do a huge amount of training and this practice went so deep into my lower body. It was almost scary but her beautiful voice and words helped keep me though. I felt both relaxed and energised afterwards. The time flew by. I need to do this far more often to pen up and release all the stagnant energy located in my lower half that's accumulated. Wonderful! Thank you

I loved this video and the concept of yin and yang. I just wish it was longer! I'd love to do an hour of back and forth between yin and yang poses.

I am returning to practice for the first time in a while. I appreciate this beginner's video with less flow and more static stretching. I wanted a video just like this because I don't want to jump right into flows and get too sore to continue to practice regularly. Great video, thank you!
