About the Author

Biff Mithoefer teaches Yin Yoga at Omega Institute, Nosara Institute in Costa Rica, and throughout the United States. He lives in Dorset, Vermont.


"Biff Mithoefer has created the most useful written material available for exploring Yin Yoga. Much more than an asana book, The Yin Yoga Kit teaches energetic principles, mental disciplines, and patient mindfulness. I highly recommend it!" * Paul Grilley, author of Yin Yoga: Outline of A Quiet Practice *
"Yoga and qigong are much more alike than they are different, causing many practitioners to say, 'Chinese yoga is Indian qigong.' The Yin Yoga Kit serves as a bridge between the two disciplines. It is like a mountain trail between China and India, probably through Tibet." * Roger Jahnke, O.M.D., director of the Institute of Integral Qigong and Tai Chi, author of The Healer *
"What makes The Yin Yoga Kit so great is the combination of the booklet, the durable double-sided cards AND the CD, all of which add to this well-rounded routine for both beginners and those who have long sought a yoga program that does more than just focus on muscle groups. This is a comprehensive package that would make a great and beneficial gift for a friend, or, even better, for yourself." * Marie D. Jones, Curled Up with a Good Book, Oct 2006 *
". . . a perfect companion for a nurturing yoga practice." * Greg Capitolo, Yoga +, Oct 2006 *
" . . . a perfect recommendation for anyone intersted in learning Yin Yoga. It's great for those who are not comfortable joining and paying for yoga classes and the kit allows you to work at your own pace and in the comfort of your home." * Nora Caterino,, Feb 2009 *
"Yin Yoga is a gentle practice that brings yoga back to its internal meditative roots, teaching you to relax." * Share Guide, Issue 102, Mar/Apr 2009 *
"I love this kit, as well as this gentle and beautiful practice. It didn't take long to incorporate these poses into my daily yoga workout, and they're easy enough for anyone to do, even during the heat of the day. . . Highly Recommended." * Patricia Snodgrass,, October 2011 *
