"I am a very high strung individual; I am continually asked 'where do you get all your energy?' I was under the assumption that Yoga; let alone Yin yoga was not for me! After three months of the Yin practise (both in school and at home ) I have made incredible changes both physically and mentally. The Yin practise has taught me to use my energy in positive ways; I have increased my focus and productivity during the day and my stress management and patience have increased considerably. I continue to see improvement on my posture and flexibility which as a health and life style coach I now the benefits are endless. Marks classes are fun and refreshing and I get to have him coach me at home as well on his DVD!"

"I enjoy taking Yoga Classes with Mark Laham because of his thorough and intuitive teaching style. I have been able to enhance my strength and stability through his focus on creating a bio-mechanically sound workout and, as a yoga philosophy enthusiast – I have also appreciated his emphasis on the importance of uniting the mind and the body as one through practice.
The new DVD series captures Mark's style and exemplifies the benefits needed to enhance any yoga practice – whether beginner, intermediate or advanced."

"Mark guides his class with a fun, yet strong & fluid dedication to the mind and body, using the yin practice to reach the deepest of postures and range of motion, leaving no yogi without an energized & complete experience!"

"Yin Yoga is ideal for home practice, but it can be a real chore--no, an impossible chore!--to stay for minutes at a time in challenging poses like Dragon or Gecko. But with Mark's DVD, five minutes of Dragon on each side seems to take less than one. As Mark leads you gently and humorously through the most demanding, extended holds, it seems just like you're in one of his hugely popular Yin group classes at the studio. Even better, the DVD is organized so that it is simplicity itself to customize and control the sequence of postures you perform. My own home practice has improved enormously, especially in hip-opening, and I intend to keep using Mark's DVD to guide me ever deeper into this wonderful practice of Yin Yoga."
"He has such a gift as a teacher, with a tremendous ability to share his knowledge and enthusiasm, and to make his students feel so positive about their progress. I had never set foot in a yoga studio until his class, and I was mildly terrified at first, but it has been a wonderful journey, and a huge part of that is because of his teaching."

"I found it inspiring, practical and very powerful, in that what he taught really worked for me."
