Reviews

"Bernie Clark's The Complete Guide to Yin Yoga is one of the best yoga resources now available." -- Paul Grilley, author of Yin Yoga: Outline of a Quiet Practice Yin Yoga is a practice much needed in today's difficult, divisive times. It offers us a way to leave behind our ideas of how we should be, and return to our true selves, where all lasting healing takes place. Bernie Clark has written a wonderfully detailed account of the history, philosophy, and practice of Yin Yoga. I recommend it not only for those interested in Yin Yoga, but for all yoga practitioners. -- Biff Mithoefer, author of The Yin Yoga Kit
