Meet your next teacher Colleen Saidman Yee

“MY LEAST FAVORITE THING IN THE WORLD is having to make a decision,” says veteran yoga teacher Colleen Saidman Yee. “I’m afraid that I’ll make the wrong one, suffer regret, and have to pay unpleasant consequences.” Still, through asana, Saidman Yee has created a path toward freedom from that fear— a process that involves tapping into her intuition via restorative yoga poses. “I realize that if I slow down and use these subtle practices to find a deep sense of relaxation, that a lot of what I’m searching for bubbles to the surface,” she says.

Here, learn more about Saidman Yee, develop a better connection with your intuition, and work through your own indecision. Her exclusive gentle sequence (beginning on page 91) serves to help you find your own way. It also provides a sneak peek into her new Yoga Journal Master Class workshop on restorative yoga, which launches online this month.
