Finally! You asked, and you received!

Who doesn’t love Yin Yoga? In the state of our current world, people are beginning to realize that the constant go-go-go attitude is taking a toll on our physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being. Now, we are looking for ways to restore the body and channel positive energy through mindful movement and consciousness. One of the initial pathways to a more grounding and cooling practice is through the lens of Yin Yoga.

*People who have no clue what Yin is, but love and trust Daniele Gates and know that if she is offering a Yoga training, they should probably take it
