Yin Yoga & Meditation is a powerful, healing combination of yin exercise to balance the body with Mindfulness Meditation practices to train the heart and mind in compassion. In this quiet, powerful practice, students explore the radical art of stillness while experiencing the transformative Applied Mindfulness practices taught by Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh and other important contemporaries.

In Yin Yoga & Meditation, the poses are “mini-meditation sessions,” supporting the development of your emotional toolbox, a mind that is steadier and less reactive, and the ability to live in greater harmony with ourselves and with the world around us. This meditative approach provides deeper access to both body and mind and enhances physical and emotional attention and intention on and off the mat. This class opens a generous gateway to the present moment, helping to cultivate a peaceful mind and a body at home with itself.

“I have gone to many different kinds of trainings in both the yoga and non-yoga worlds, and your approach to teaching is unlike anything I have experienced. You embody what you teach. You live it and understand it completely at a cellular level. It simply flows from you as effortlessly and consistently as the breath… I feel confident in teaching a safe, well thought out Yin class and feel empowered to go with my own heart!”KF, Boston
