International and intentful Yin & Restorative Yoga teacher Kali Basman blends Chinese Medicine, Five Elements, and Buddhist Philosophy into a potent lunar Yin Yoga practice. On the textured path of mindful healing,  Kali is celebrated for her philosophical eloquence surrounding psychological self-inquiry, embodied Anatomy and Integrated Physiology with a sharp intellect and a soft, wide heart. She crafts innovative sequencing to address root causes of stagnation in the Chi body and targets the Yin Meridians to coax Prana into particular healing and rejuvenative pathways. 

Radiating with ritual, the integrated wisdom practice she offers is a tool to rise to your intrinsic baseline of tranquility, recall your innate ability for spaciousness, and remind your system of its unique anatomical, structural, and emotional wholeness.

Yin Yoga is a transformative and rejuvenative practice that seeks to mindfully lengthen and lubricate the connective tissues by practicing the methods of stillness, mindfulness, and loving kindness. This practice is an opportunity for neuroplastic molding of the rest and digest function of your brain, empowering practitioners to beckon the brain into a restful and restorative Theta Brain Wave state to increase immunologic function.

Kali offers classes, teacher trainings, retreats and workshops around the globe. She is always happy and humbled to return to her home studio at Bhakti Yoga Shala in Los Angeles.

Kali pays reverent homage to the lineage of her two primary teachers: Sarah Powers & Pema Chodron. As well her gratitude extends to an outer mandala of other major influencers she’s studied with on the path: Jack Kornfield, Judith Hanson Lasater, Paul Grilley, Govind Das and more, contributing to her integration of Buddhist Philosophy & the Dharma, Yin & Restorative Yoga, & Bhakti Yoga.
