Yin Yoga Sequence: 60 Minutes (Challenge in Stillness)

This sequence came about after a challenge I was presented with at a studio I have recently been covering Yin classes at. It includes some of the more challenging, yang-like poses that I wouldn’t normally teach in class. You can read more about this and the context, here.
