"Like a long, deep, beatific exhale, this gentlest book envelops you from the opening page – as soft as it is powerful, as accepting as it is radical – a treatise, toolkit and treasure, for all women who seek to re-member their nature."

"Another beautiful and instructive book for these weird modern times from Sarah Robinson. A delight to read, Sarah is now a trusted resource in my empowering library."

"Sarah Robinson has a special talent for taking disparate and complex ancient systems and making them, not only accessible, but making their similarities so glaringly obvious that you wonder why you didn't see them before.
Sarah has drawn a path that helps the reader find these delicious connections and see the rich similarities and illustrative differences between Yoga and Chinese Medical theory. I learned a lot with this book and enjoyed every minute."

"Yin Magic is exactly what the world needs right now. An invitation to slow down; the reasons why it's essential we do that, as well as detailed guidance on how we do it. Engaging and fascinating, Yin Magic is an antidote to the world's default stress state. Robinson is also genius at breaking down in-depth philosophies and practices such as Tao, Yoga, Buddhism, Ayurveda, and Chinese medicine in a way that makes them relatable and applicable in our lives today."
—Tamara Pitelen, author, energy healer and yoga instructor
