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

These poses felt wonderful and I want to try this again. But... the last back bend pose, which was a new pose for me, triggered restless legs, with my nerves shooting through my hips and legs for the rest of the practice. Any idea if this is good or bad? RLS is one reason I do yoga, and if these stretches will eventually help, I'm willing to try to work through it.

Great class! I love the yang and yin! Great instructor! Thank you so much-just what I needed this morning!

With lower back issues, I'm hesitant to start the day with yoga because my body is too tight and cold. This was a really nice workout that had some heat generating moves to start, and very relieving stretches to close. Thank you for this.

I'm finally learning to release! All the stretching positions in the world won't help if I don't give myself time to let go. This class helped me realize that Yin is what I need to get there. Thanks!

I have scoliosis and I really enjoy the spine stretch with the downward looking dog posture. This session had none :( Most of the session was very easy for intermediate level, and rather calm taking a long time on postures to stretch. I guess not my thing..
