"Sagel Urlacher is a true gift to the world of YOGA. Her offerings - written or taught- have been medicine for so many people. Her ability to fuse where East meets West with humor, compassion and wisdom is unprecedented."

"Cultivating joy. This is the essential song at the heart of Sagel Urlacher’s Yin Yoga & Meditation: what tools we can use to make our lives better, how we can live our lives, what are some pathways towards presence and wellbeing. This book’s mandala map is an insightful device that can sing to both those relatively new to practice and those who have been practising for decades…This is the fruit of Sagel’s twenty plus years of teaching experience and practice, and her own substantial study. She reminds us again and again of the preciousness of this human existence…This new book is definitely a very valuable addition to the growing library of Yin titles…For practitioners and teachers, this book is a wonderful and thorough resource that I highly commend."

"Sagel has written a true gem of a book I will come back to for years to come! Full of wisdom, technique, practices, and philosophy, layers unfold and will keep you coming back for further exploration. As a yoga teacher, I value Sagel’s expertise in Yin yoga, Yoga Nidra, and mindfulness, so I immediately dove into the book and I am so glad I did. I truly love the innovative mandala mapping for the practice, and I have learned so much, as the teachings go right to the heart and soul of the practice. Both accessible and complete, this book is perfect for all levels. If you are curious about the Yin practice, this book is for you. And if you are an experienced yogi, this will give you further insights into the beauty and layers of the yoga practice."
