Crawf Weir has been teaching Yin Yoga for over 10 years. He has trained with both Sarah Powers and Paul Grilley, the two leading Yin yoga teachers in the world today. Both these teachers have very different styles: Sarah is more about Buddhist philosophy and meditation practices and Paul is more about functional yoga and how to adapt the physical body make the practice more safe and effective. Crawf brings these two styles of teaching yin yoga together in a way that is both practical and inspiring.
