This therapeutic InnerYoga session will nourish your being and body deeply without asking you to expend too much energy.

This video incorporates a healthy dose of pranayama, yin yoga to target our kidney chi, gentle reclined postures, an a meditation inspired by the Japanese healing art of Jin Shin Jyutsu. This video is part of the Sleep and Immunity Practice Guide

Before doing this practice I had uncomfortable sensations and tremors in my chest. Now they have gone and I feel soothed and nourished. Thank you Dina for such a healing practice. Namaste.

I am doing a gentle organ detox this week and nearing the peak of discomfort today. Tried this in place of my usual vinyasa flow and it felt very clear and grounding. May return to this again as the cleanse progresses.

I'm fighting chronic lyme disease which can leave me feeling alienated from my body. This practice really helps me to reconnect to myself and have some peace in this exhausting process.

I love yin practice, this was wonderful to start my day. Did this practice outside on my deck. Music was very nice , only heard it in transition. Thank you Dina. The Jin shin jyutsu was fab.

Excellent to nourish your parasympathetic nervous system.
Love the Jin Shin Jyutsu.
Added ten minutes of pranayama: 1:2 ratio.
Thank you!

I do this practice any time I'm under the weather and find it helps a lot. I never noticed the music until I paid attention today after reading the previous comment. I don't find it irritating at all and to me, it's barely audible. (I usually keep the volumes family low.) The music is like a steady heartbeat. I think it is intended to be subtlety stimulating throughout the long static poses.

I'm sure this is a great practice, but I didn't last more than 15 minutes, because of the music. It's not relaxing! And kind of bad. No offense, it's just not great music for such a slow practice, and I think I will have that tune stuck in my head for a day. I really wish I could listen without the music because this practice is exactly what I need right now. :-/

I loved that you incorporated Jin Shin Jyutsu into the practice. I am a practitioner and the combination are very powerful.
Thank you

Really enjoyed the different take on yin . Question, what is the name of the flow at the end that uses fingertips and hand on the back, and what is the explanation for using it? Thanks.

Dina, that was delish like you said. Love the immune flow I could see waves of colors passing over me, very nice. Thanks so much, nice for Pre holiday stress .

I thought I needed a more active flow for a Monday, but something told me to do the Day 13 practice, which I missed yesterday... and it was exactly what I needed.

Lovely practice, so very calming.

RubyDiamond, posted on November 24, 2013

Thanks Dina. Simply beautiful & calming. The best way to let go & just be. I dedicate this one to my honey B and my precious daughter Lolly. Much Love!

DurgaMa, posted on November 24, 2013

what was the name of the practice at the very end (hand on upper back and thumb to alternate fingers)? What is the purpose of this practice?

misstante, posted on September 1, 2014

Aaaaaahhhhh. Thank you.

I've done one of your other classes that was very yin and healing. This one was too intense for my body. I found myself in too much pain in these positions and not able to get over the anger at the pain. I'm sure this will be fine for people who have a certain level of health...even for me when my health gets back up to a certain state. Unfortunately, I'm just not there yet.
