I really loved this class. I did some great yin yoga where I used to live before, and now I can t find anywhere to practice. This is great to do at home before bed.

Nice Class. Slow, long holds really opens up tight areas. Good class to settle down to after a long day.

I appreciated the explanations of yin practice, they were helpful for me to embrace this class. Thanks!

Tonight was the first time I tried Yin yoga. I am very impressed. Holding the poses for so long makes a huge difference in how the body feels after each pose. Pigeon pose has always been a favorite, and Sleeping Swan (as it s called here) opened my hips in a way I ve never felt. Seal pose, and the way she explained to engage the glutes and leg muscles. I have had chronic back pain for years. I remember very few times, in yoga, at a chiropractor, and even on painkillers, that I got such a feeling of relief. My entire body feels deliciously relaxed and gorgeously stretched.
Give this a shot. If you re hurting, or stressed, or, you know, existing, try this class. I am really looking forward to trying more yin classes.

This was a well done class. It was relaxing, restorative, and efficient. The poses were gentle and it really helped you open up and meditate. It is slow paced, and the poses are held for a couple minutes each. It is for someone who desires to go inward, breath and open up the body in a relaxing way.

This class is so important for us type As to do from time to time. It is the perfect way to balance out a vigorous practice, or when you re feeling stressed/unbalanced/out of touch with your energy. The instructor is amazing and her voice is pure kindness and light. I feel so relaxed and tuned in after the 60 minute version. Thank you so much Elise and Yoga Download!

As a retired competitive gymnast, I often feel the aches and pains from all the years of pounding. I have found Elise s Yin Yoga class to be an excellent way to relieve hip and back pain. Her calming voice helps me to ease deeper into each of the poses, and the pacing is just right.

Perfect class for relaxing and detoxifying. Did the 35 minute class but will definitely do the 60 minute next time. Helped release the cramp/stress/side-effects of my monthly cycle.

First time to take a yin class on yoga download. It gave the deep tissue release you expect. Was relaxing and well sequenced. I would take it again.

Lovely Yin yoga! I don t know why I don t incorporate more Yin into my personal practice - I always find myself feeling whole, complete and rounded after this type of class. Great instructor, clear and understandable voice. More Yin Yoga please!!

This yoga class is one of the best I ve ever done! I have done more active styles of yoga, but this class really opened my eyes to the benefits of a more meditative style. It incorporates some great deep stretches that have helped me in gymnastics. I try to do it 2 or 3 times a week.

Really nice practice. Directions are clear, tone is meditative and peaceful. Perfect opportunity to develop yin qualities on and off the mat.

great relaxation and stretching, not too overwhelming, very pleasant and relaxing voice
By Sasangasana | Sunday, March 23, 2014
Nice! Clear instructions, including how to take the posture further or what to do if you can t quite get there. Very little need to keep looking at the screen, perfect for yin where you need to focus on surrendering and maybe keep your eyes closed. Long silences as we hold the pose challenges one s discipline to surrender further. Looking forward to more Yin from Elise. Thank you.

Lovely, relaxing and meditative class!

Very peaceful session. Good stretching to take all the busyness of the day out of the system.

Nice but a little slow
By Momma Bear | Tuesday, June 03, 2014
Relaxing, but this is more for morning then evening with the words she uses.
By Swood137 | Sunday, August 03, 2014
I did the hour, and it was AMAZING! I did it right before bed and I slept so good afterwards. I am a beginner, so for me it was challenging, I m not as flexible, so it was a challenge to hold the poses as long as she did, but it felt so good afterwards. I definitely recommend this if you want to relax and wind down and also stretch out your joints before bed.
By Nicole | Tuesday, January 21, 2014
Just what I needed. It s amazing how the body cracks more in yin yoga.
By Augie | Thursday, August 07, 2014
great yin class...music was great.
I will definitely do this one again. Even got my 9 month old puppy to relax
By salemhouse | Wednesday, January 08, 2014
Fearing that I have broken my toe, I came back to this class today. It is so deceptively simple and difficult at the same time. You really have time to let your brain go in so many ways during this practice. Highly recommended.
By abenson | Tuesday, July 23, 2013
Love love love this class. I was having a bit of an off day and I was just in a sour mood. This class helped bring me back to my center and gave me a new perspective that I desperately needed. I find that when I take this class I m so much more calm and peaceful for the rest of the day.
By Claudia | Sunday, July 14, 2013
Great class! I really got the deep relaxation I wanted.
By Katy | Tuesday, June 18, 2013
Elise, namaste and thank you with all my heart. This class is utterly transformative. My body and mind released so much that I actually wept during shavasana. I will come and find you at your studio in Denver!

Wow, yin yoga is intense! I feel wonderfully relaxed afterwards though and the instructor s voice is just perfect. I just did the 25 minute class and will probably buy the 60 minute class next. Thanks!

Loved, loved loved. Her voice is great, she sounds like she s smiling the whole time. So restoring & calming...I feel great :)

I am so glad I did this class...I came home from a long day and just wanted to crawl into bed but instead did the 35 minute Yin Yoga class. Good call! The class is very relaxing and I really like the way the instructor describes the poses. Holding some of the poses can be a bit challenging at first but gets easier with practice and it feels so good!
By Kim | Wednesday, February 27, 2013
I have done several of these classes, and all are great for relaxation when you also want a deep stretch.
By Kaahaa | Friday, January 11, 2013
This is my favourite for those stressed-out times when my body is tense and my breathing is shallow. I emerge from the 60-min class relaxed, thoroughly stretched and totally reconnected to my breath. Challenging and sometimes painful to give in to the deep stretches, but so very rewarding.
By Rachel | Sunday, September 02, 2012
This was exactly what I needed this morning. I found the class balancing and nutritive to the whole body,mind and spirit. I woke this morning achy and with a headache. I am no longer achy and I can feel my energy flowing evenly.
By Camiller | Thursday, February 07, 2013
Really enjoyed Yin Yoga, felt my hips especially opening like they have never before. Hoping you ll do a Yang class too!
By Monique | Wednesday, January 30, 2013
i ve always been meaning to try Yin yoga, but kept putting it off. thankfully i let go and just did it. wow!!!! so restorative and i love the long holds. thank you for this class!
By angington | Wednesday, May 02, 2012
I was afraid I would be bored as some other gentle yoga classes leave me, but that was not the case. Yin Yoga is quieting yet challenging. Perfect for those days you want to move your body, but don t feel up to a vigorous practice.
By Susy | Sunday, April 29, 2012
Wow!!! Yin Yoga is amazing. It is so restorative,
beautiful and healing.Thank you for presenting it.
