Course Description

Are you ready to go on a journey of self-discovery…

… and rid yourself of stress by releasing the tension in your connective tissue?

Just imagine. Settling down from a stressful day and melting the tension in your body as you relax into a meditative Yin Yoga session. This easy practice is designed to invigorate your body and open it to feelings you've never experienced before. Feelings of complete relaxation.

Yin Yoga provides an opportunity to heal the mind and body by diving deep into the roots of your tension, stress and unease. What's more, it's the perfect counterpoint to an active yoga practice. Each pose is held for 3-5 minutes allowing you to target the deep connective tissue. It's great for those who live a stressful lifestyle who would like to improve flexibility, joint health, and mental focus.

Just picture the peace of mind you'll feel as you settle into the serene, gentle and contemplative practice of Yin Yoga. It's a great way to get to the meditative roots of yogic practice. While it might not be as difficult as other forms of yoga, it offers its own unique set of challenges and rewards.

This course is designed for all levels including beginners, intermediate and advanced yoga practitioners. Kassandra walks you step-by-step through each of the poses. Her detailed instructions allow you to follow along without having to keep your eyes glued to the screen. You can practice at your own pace in the comfort of your home, and you'll get the feeling of being in the studio. It won't feel like you're “missing out" on anything. You'll also find it's more time and cost effective than a regular class.

Benefits You Can Get From This Course:

  • Soften the upper body and melt the tension in your neck and shoulders by focusing on the scalene, trapezius and deltoid muscles…
  • Relieve lower back pain as you open the front and back of your body through focusing on stretching the pectorals, latissimus dorsi and rhomboids…
  • Eliminate daily stress and emotional trauma by diving deep into your lower body and opening tight areas by doing poses that target the glutes, psoas, hamstrings and rectus femoris…
  • Relax completely and deeply, and rid yourself of stress and unacknowledged emotions as you experience peace and self-reflection…
  • And finally, bring positive changes to your mental and physical well-being.

Here's What a Few Students Have to Say… ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ “This is an excellent course and since purchasing it, I have made it part of my daily exercise routine. I have tried different styles of yoga over the years, but I am finding that Yin yoga is best suited for me. The long extended poses work muscles and joints in a deep, yet safe fashion and allows a restorative meditation to soothe the nerves and release tension. Kassandra is a wonderful teacher. She explains the poses with a relaxing voice and says just enough. I find instructors who speak all the time quite distracting. I recommend this course highly and I expect to continue using it in the months to come." -- Tom Daddesio

“Super easy to follow instruction - Great relaxing voice and music - Awesome poses that are really effective and easy to do - Duration of the videos are perfect! (In person classes here are 1hr 15 which is wayyy too long for me. I love that this is shorter.) I couldn't be happier. Thanks so much for putting this course together!!! You've done an amazing job." -- Max Imus ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
