WRITINGS BY LEE ANN: Yin Yoga and Quieting the Mind


Praise for Lee Ann’s Yin Yoga Classes:

“After trying Yin Yoga on my own for a few months, I started taking classes from Lee Ann to see if a teacher could help me.  She could, a lot.  There were things that books and videos just couldn’t explain.  I needed a teacher.  Besides knowing her stuff, Lee Ann is warm, cheerful, and witty.  And I find myself smiling when I see how much joy she takes in teaching.  Were she to offer a class in medieval poetry or in woodworking, I’d sign up.  As for Yin Yoga itself?  I felt great after the first class, wonderfully tranquil.  But, of course, I was a novice and just beginning to learn.  In the next couple of classes—under Lee Ann’s attentive eye—I got better at relaxing and softening into the poses, better at letting gravity do the work.  And with this improvement, the benefits of Yin Yoga became even greater.” —Jim Hancock
