Hello friends, today I thought I’d share a selection of my yin yoga classes.
I posted these videos to my youtube channel in recent months, so this will give you the opportunity to sink in and try a class (or more)!
Remember that yin yoga is truly for everybody – every body. It’s a gentle, slow-paced style of yoga where postures are held for longer periods of time than in other yoga classes. Poses may be held anywhere from a minute to five minutes or more.
