In this class Doug Swenson blends a powerful start of challenging asana and vinyasa, then moving to a soothing gentle yin flavor, resulting in the perfect balance of qualities. The class focuses on challenging your whole body then surrendering completely to a soothing melody of Yin practice. This balance allows freedom, diversity and a taste of both worlds. First strengthen your whole body, then soothe and relax the same areas. Doug ends this practice with a seated chakra meditation. You will definitely leave this class feeling well-rounded and balanced.

I really loved the combos and the instructions - as a new yoga teacher myself, I find the clarity of you instructions and the way you bring us back to the breath, very insightful. Thank you

Greetings Apanakhi,

That is wonderful to know you enjoyed the "Power to Yin" presentation and I thank you for your nice comments. Sometimes the moments in time line up in sync as with you - when you saw the sparking water with sunlight creating rainbows - Blessings, Doug

Wow, Doug, that was an amazing practice! I loved how you moved us through a warm up, a challenging practice, some yin work, and a beautiful meditation. Morning sunlight was streaming past a fall of water sparkling on the maple from a sprinkler. I could see the colors of the chakras right outside my open window as you guided our meditation. Wonderful practice!

Though this is rated Advanced, options even for beginners are given, and it's really a very all-levels class.

Hi Montlake,

I appreciate your comments - yes I agree with you from one perspective - yet this video does have a few very challenging poses, so if we label it all levels - then the ones who are not advanced, would not be happy, (in spite of the alternatives for less experienced) - so we are stuck in the middle. I assume the editors do he best they can to satisfy the masses with the rating. Thank you again for your comments - Hope you have a great day :) Blessings, Doug
