International yoga teacher Kali Basman ( enriches the paradigm of Yin Yoga to integrate distinct aspects of Self into an innate wisdom practice to awaken a rich inner life and radiate with ritual. Her offering honors Yin Yoga as a tool to surrender to our intrinsic wholeness.

On the textured path of mindful healing, Kali is celebrated for her integration of the 5 Elements and Chinese Meridian Theory with self-inquiry, embodied Anatomy, Buddhist Philosophy of Equanimity, and sharp intellect.

Yin Yoga is a practice that seeks to mindfully lengthen and lubricate the connective tissues and approach Equanimity in the subtle and emotional body. Practicing the methods of stillness, mindfulness, and loving kindness, Yin Yoga empowers practitioners to coax Prana into particular healing and rejuvenative pathways.

For Kali, the thrust of a significant yin practice is that of inclusion, learning to open to and accept every sensation that arises and emerges from within us.

Kali offers classes, teacher trainings, and workshops around the globe from Envision Festival in Costa Rica to Healing House in Sacred Valley Peru, Detox Retreats in Tulum, and more.

Kali pays reverent homage to her lineage of teachers, Sarah Powers, Paul Grilley and Judith Lasater.
