"The power of yin yoga is time, not effort. It takes time for our connective tissues to slowly respond to a gentle stress, it cannot be rushed. Learning to patiently wait calms the mind and develops the necessary attitude for meditation practices." Paul Grilley

“Daphne sets a fun, loving & open space over the 5 training days. Our questions and input were always invited freely. The 2x daily practices allowed us all to integrate our learning and embody the beautiful yin poses in our bodies.
Her sharing of experience & knowledge is enlightening and refreshing. The highlight for me, was learning about skeletal variations and how that can reflect entirely what the body can and cannot do. This opened my eyes to viewing the body in such a different light.
I would highly recommend this course to anyone wanting to deepen their own practice or use it to teacher others.”
