If you're having issues with the player:

Sarah-Jane begins with a yang flow, which is full of energy, movement and challenging poses, to warm and prepare the body for 30 minutes of yin. The heat generated during the first 20 minutes makes the yin poses - the deeper spinal bends and twists - feel so good you'll want to spend a lot more time in savasana.

Equipment: None
Style: Hatha Yoga, Yin Yoga, Yoga for Back Care


What a release this was!
tiel 6 months ago

This week I had slipped into a hole in the sidewalk and the twisting of my rt ankle caused inside knee pain. Today when playing tennis the knee acted up and then I noticed my back felt compressed. I told my fellow players that I was going to go home and have my yoga session clear it up (I have a tournament in 2 weeks). Low and behold your yin yang session worked magic and stopped the pain in both areas. I can move freely. Amazing! I was leery about the pose lying back with one leg stretched out and the other bent with an outward rotation of the hip (inner knee on mat) but I did the prana breathing and it got me through it. Thank you so much!

I also experienced the video pausing in places.

like magic for my back

I have done this class about 100 times. It is the perfect cure for a sore back and it also helps keep my back strong and flexible when it isn't sore. I always feel better after doing this class and would love another similar class from Sarah.

Excellent Yang flow with Svarga Dvidasana and deep Yin Stretches

I was an advanced yogini (and teacher) until I was in a hit and run crash last year. I am starting with Beginning and Intermediate yoga again every day... I really missed my mat and the healing it provides. Thank you so much for this healing practice! I used to be able to come into Svarga Dvidasana(Bird of Paradise Posture) and stand and straighten the bound leg, but it is now a challenge to lift after binding. I find challenges within every class a very welcome element, so I thank you for including this more advanced posture in there for me to gain confidence in! I missed the Yogi Tunes music in this practice, but the bird sounds and seeing the crow proudly strutting his stuff in the beginning were awesome! Namaste from Ireland.

Video Streaming Concern - Video Keeps Freezing

While I absolutely love this practice, I am concerned that while practicing with very strong wifi this video often freezes, which as you can imagine throws me off.
