This was perfect. At first I was concerned that "being" for the longer holds would aggravate my anxiety, but in the end I found a wonderful state of peace... ready to begin the day from a place of calm. Thank you!

Hi Dina, could you tell me the name of the breathing technic ( how do you write that name ) you did at the beginning of the class: breathe out 2/3 by the nose and 1/3 by the mouth. Thank you so much for everything. Lots of xxxxx NB : I'm french, sorry for the mistakes if there are some!

This actually switches me nervous system from sympathetic to parasympathetic with the Taoist breath I can practice anywhere and the Jin Shin Jyutsu.
I also liked the thumb hold to allay worry.

I am a huge fan and would love more practices from you.

I love every single one of your classes - they are so healing and gentle. I can do them any time, even when I am not feeling so well - I always feel better. Thank you!

This was a more active yin than other classes I have done, but very enjoyable.

This was perfect. Gentle, slow and nurturing. Thank you. It was exactly what I needed to start the day on a quiet and fully embodied way.

I did this practice for the first time after doing some work around forgiveness for myself (and by extension others) This practice completely supported my studies, leaving me filled with the spaciousness to forgive. Thank you.

Perfect way to start the day, watching sunrise while listening and actively doing. First day going back to work in 2015, bring it on!

This is wonderful. I'm suffering from chronic anxiety at the moment and this took me from stressed out to blissed out. Thank you so much for introducing me to Jin Shin Jyutsu, I think it's amazing. The energy lock in this practice I found particularly powerful. Namaste.

Thanks for including the Jin Shin Jyutsu; it was new to me. This is a great sequence at a relaxed pace. It reminded me to set my intention for the day, which was patience, compassion and comfort for myself and all around me. I feel like I can successfully face my day now! Namaste!

Thank you thank you.

Very transformative practice. I am taking a course on Whole Medical Systems for a PhD and it focuses on Traditional Chinese Medicine and Ayurveda. I appreciated this practice as it referenced concepts from both systems. What a nice surprise for me today...I thought I was taking a break from studying but actually reinforced my learning while getting incredibly relaxed and centered.

I enjoyed getting into a calm zone within. Your practice helped me get there. Love it. Thanks Dina. Sat Nam.

Just wanted to let you know this helped me so much. My husband was in a terrible unexpected accident and I have been caring for him for the past 2 days. I did this practice this morning and it helped me so greatly. Thank you so much.

@NicoleUrdang Hi nicole! Try the practice I just released in the morning series. It includes some jin shin and keep an eye out for the InnerYoga Immune System Booster practice that will be released in the coming months. It includes a sequence of Jin Shin Jyutsu for the immune system. Be well! Dina
