Welcome to Yin yoga!
Imagine that your body is agile and healthy, your mind is calm and balanced, and that you feel energetic and happy. Only a few Yin yoga sequences can have that impact on your life.
Yin yoga is a tranquil and restful yoga. It has been described as unbearably nice or nicely unbearable, but above all it is easy—it suits all body types and personalities. Everyone can do Yin yoga, at any time, in any place. You do not need special equipment, and do not even have to change clothes.
My wish with this app is to get you in better shape. In it, I have collected 30 of my most popular Yin yoga classes. You’ll find short sequences that you can perform any time of day, to longer classes that will revitalise your whole system. I have also included a longer guided Still Rest and a Mindfulness Meditation.
I will guide you into and through the positions as if you were practicing in one of my classes. The positions are also described in text and the beautiful photos from my book Serenity Yin yoga. I will time you to three and five minutes and support you as you stay in the positions.
The best yoga is that which is done, and with this app, it has never been easier to start and sustain a revitalising Yin yoga practice at home.
My hope, and expectation, is that Yin yoga will renew your energy and vitality, and make you flexible and calm. Lie down in the simple positions, relax, and just be.
If you do Yin yoga once a day, that’s fantastic.
If you do it once a week, that’s fantastic, too.
If you only ever do it once, that’s also fantastic!

Ratings and Reviews
The app is fantastic, creating your own sequence is brilliant and the instructor has a wonderfully calming voice. Plus, I can now say Yin Yoga is perfect for me. As a lifelong cyclist who never stretched, most yoga classes are too fast, not deep in the pose, plus by the time I sort of figured out the posture the class is onto the next few. I’m terrible at the choreography. Not so with Yin. I can go deep and deeper yet into each move and literally fell the facia melt into bliss. The instructor also adds a light layer of mindfulness to her guidance which tops off the journey perfectly.
Not working anymore
***Amending my previous comment: I loved loved loved this app. It was perfect for my lifestyle and yoga style, and great for my physical and mental health. But it no longer works. There is no audio, so I can't tell when to switch poses without staring at it, defeating the purpose. I emailed the company and did not receive a response. I am pretty heartbroken about this lovely and helpful app.***
I did the every day routine last night and it's exactly what I need.
The only thing I wish this had is a category of poses that hit the upper body better- my neck and shoulders etc need some serious yin like stretching and I can't find poses that focus on them specifically. I'd LOVE to see that added!

Volume works now. Also very responsive dev team
This is a revision from a one star review to a five star. I had problems with the volume (no sound) and I reached out to the developers. I was impressed by their quick and friendly response even though I still couldn't get the volume to work. However, this week it seems to have resolved itself and the app with volume is wonderful. Thanks!

We haven't updated the app for a year because we do not have to. Yet. The audio trouble is not due to faulty programming. If the proposed steps were followed, the problem should have been resolved. Please, feel free to email us again and we will try and investigate once more. firstname.lastname@example.org
