Yin Yoga CD Review: “Yin Yoga at it?s best. After taking a few of Ken?s classes at Kripalu and loving his approach, I was thrilled to find a CD of a guided Yin Yoga class. He is so knowledgeable and explains the postures, with alternatives, very clearly. Ken?s guided breathwork through the postures are so relaxing and healing. I whole-heartedly recommend this CD for anyone who wants to delve deep into the fascia and release bound energy and chronic tension. Fabulous!” – Lisa Zechiel
