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, Integrated Physiology, Buddhist Philosophy of Equanimity, The Four Noble Truths, and sharp intellect. She crafts innovative sequencing to address root causes of stagnation in the body mind system, and targets the Yin Meridians to coax Chi into 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 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.

For Kali, the thrust of a transformative practice in Yin Yoga empowers practitioners to beckon Prana into the Path of awakening.

Kali offers classes, teacher trainings, retreats and workshops around the globe from Envision Festival in Costa Rica to Healing House in Sacred Valley Peru, Detox Retreats in Tulum, Restorative Workshops in Sedona, and more. She is always happy and humbled to return to her home studio at Bhakti Yoga Shala in Los Angeles.

Kali pays reverent homage to her lineage of teachers, Sarah Powers, Paul Grilley and Judith Lasater.
