I love the Yin practice, but the singing bowls and meditation at the end was sublime. Thank You.

I loved this class, best yin i've watched in a while! I got the deepest release in my hips which is an accomplishment for me and I also loved the arm behind the shoulder blades stretch , the whole thing was great and I personally felt that the music helped me reach a more meditative stretch!

would love to know where I could get this music please ... amazing class, feel blissed out.

I really enjoyed this class. It was perfect for me after a very heavy and stressful day. I feel relaxed.
The only thing I did not enjoy was the sound. I tried to forget about it... and sometimes succeeded. But some other times was a pain in my ears...

This was a pleasant, relaxing experience; challenging your body to hold poses until you find full release, something in our practices we don't always allow or have time for. The importance of a restorative practice can be compared to getting your car washed, you can go through the car wash, and, indeed, come out sparkling, but if you take it in to be thoroughly washed and detailed, when done, it is shining from the inside out! Thank you, Rick, for yet another wonderful practice!

I was so looking forward to this work. I am sorry not everyone can tolerate sonic frequency. For me this is anything but relaxing. I had to stop after two minutes of listening to that.

We appreciate your feedback on the sounds. You may want to try reviewing the video with the audio turned down, to see if that helps.

HI Suzanna

That is an option however in restorative, you are often in a state of relaxation. Your face is away from the monitor, with eyes closed. If I turn down the volume I will not hear the cue for the next pose. The one thing I do not wish to do in restorative is anticipate.

I hope you understand why, in this case turning down the volume to block out the sonic sound is not an option. there are plenty of other options on this site and plenty of people who love the sonic, so everything will work out fine.

As a fibromyalgia sufferer, I am keen on restorative and yin practices to help ease my symptoms. I love Rick's voice and the pace of this video, which lets you sink deeply into each posture and find the layers of release before moving on. Thank you!

beautiful class - loved the tibetan bowls. thank you!

Despite the fact that I love singing bowls, somehow in this context they were extremely distracting. I could not truly relax, no matter what pose I was in.

Loved it but couldn't find the back round music

Sort of like a choreographed nap. Perfect after a long business trip.

I liked the postures, but the background music made me feel very anxious. It took me about half the video before I overcame that feeling.

LOVED IT!!!!!! Going to favorites.

This class was kjust what i needed after a five hour round trip in the car today, thank you so much feel like my old self again.

Thank you so much for the beautiful restorative videos. I also love the original version, but this one is easier to fit in to a busy schedule. Blessings, Becca

This is a wonderful, meditative class; the 98-minute version is even better, allowing for even deeper meditation. I agree with AWady, that a wall yin class given by Rick would be most pleasant.

Loved the spaciousness and the sound of crystal bowls ... helped induce meditative state. Thank you!

Hi cindy7graham, The best approach to designing classes for speciality groups is to create a flow based from your knowledge and experience. Then take this flow to a qualified movement/exercise specialist like a physiotherapist (take him/her out for lunch). Review the flow and discuss the target group as well as your concerns. They will likely be able to offer safe modifications and suggestions to make this class appropriate. Namaste, Kreg MYO

I would like any tips on teaching yoga to seniors, some of whom only sit in a chair or stand behind the chair to hold on for balance. Also some can only do the mildest, careful twists and forward bends, as they have osteo and scoliosis conditions. I have had a difficult time finding information. Thank you

AWady, posted on July 10, 2009

Wonderful. thanks. It would be great if you could do a recuprative yoga class, with support legs up wall etc. Just a thought.

So relaxing, I did this after a long bike ride and it was wonderful. Thank you.

I loved how much quiet time there was and the sound of the vibration bowls. Possibly my favorite video so far on gaiamtv.

turbojase, posted on May 28, 2014

This video was pretty much PERFECT for the beginner! This was my first ever yoga experience (that I started, AND was actually completed). I am a 39yr old woman, suffering ongoing daily chronic pain in my neck and upper back. What I find most amazing about THIS video, is the fact that it can be done by nearly anyone of any age, size and or ability. Though I am only 5'4" tall and overweight, I have always been very flexible. This has long made my Docs & Chiropractor very nervous as that combination of too much weight and avid flexibility can be very damaging, as it creates an easy 'in' for injury. The way the leader shows us all the different modifications available for each pose and makes a point to actually get himself into the modified positions to actually SHOW us viewers how (and explaining why) the modified pose is what it is...just AMAZING! Now I only wish I knew of other specific Yoga vids here on GaiamTV. Guess I'm off to explore some more!

Thank you for this beautiful stretching moment..

evagajda55, posted on August 23, 2014

I am glad you shared your experience, as a Yoga teacher myself it's nice to know how you felt as a beginner after this class and with your restraints. I plan do share this with my students.

Keep practicing,

Perfect to restore. Love the vibrations.
