Class Description: 
The yin comes before the yang in this wonderful, heart-opening, shoulder-releasing and back pain-relieving yin/yang yoga class. Sarah-Jane helps you ease into a series of intense yin poses to release the shoulders first, then moves you through a flow that deepens shoulder openers before you lie down to relax in savasana. Note: you need a bolster, pillow or folded blanket for this class.

To be honest I couldn't get
TriDorisimo 1 month ago

To be honest I couldn't get in to some of the "easy" poses at the start, and holding for so long proved challenging... HOWEVER by the end of it I really got it! Felt quite significant release particularly to my shoulders. I'm definitely going to give it another go for the Yin Yang of it :)

Very challenging!

I found this to be a huge jump in difficulty. Leaning on my feet/ankles (and even the adjustments) was too much for my ankles.

A little more challenging than "beginner"

I felt that this class was at a different level than the David's deep shoulder stretch done a couple of days before in the 30-day Yoga Challenge. I might suggest that this be considered more of a challenging beginner rating. I also felt that the speed was a little frantic. :-/

I keep returning to this

What a surprise to find elements of my previous Bikram practice - the best ones for releasing / easing my hips / lower back connection.
New to DYWM and the 30-day challenge.
Will look up the other yin and yang class

Fantastic class! New to DYWM

Fantastic class! New to DYWM and 30-day challenge.
Found elements of my previous Bikram practice - the one that helped release my hip / lower back connection.
What a great surprise!!!
Need to work on my balance though and the first part.
Thank you!!!

Thank you

I just started the 30 day challenge. I go between beginner and advanced and like both! I am trying to be very mindful and loving to myself and not push it. I had an injury to my arm and had to not do yoga for a few months. Now healed I am finding this 30 day a good way to get back to my practice!

Buttery

I have never done a YIN/YANG and oddly had more challenges with the YIN than the YANG. I need to find some sort of alternative for those bent back knees...yipes. But, yes, like you said near the end... my shoulders now feel quite buttery. Thanks for offering this variation.

Thank you thank you thank you!

Yin / Yang rocks!

Another lovely practice- I am beginning to really like the YIN/YANG practices with deep, long concentrating poses and then invigorating movements with heat. I am so excited that I have kept this up so long!
