Changes in the app Serenity Yin Yoga
The codebase of the app is too old. Because of this, Google Play has removed the app (does not affect you who already have installed the app). The developers LUX PUBLICA are now in the process of redesigning the entire app so that it becomes compatible with modern technology (it is, after all, six years old). This work is expected to be completed sometime late summer. And new changes are coming. If you want to keep the app as it is (at best you can do it for a few more years) you should avoid updating the app when the phone says “update”.
Check if you have a so-called “automatic update” on and remove it from this particular app, otherwise you will lose your “old” version. However, if you want to get access to the new annual updates you will be asked to download it again.
A part of the app will be for free, and you will be asked to pay for other sections that you want/need through so-called IAP, In app purchase. It will not be possible to keep the same generous model –unless you choose not to update the app of course.
Magdalena have just recorded many new meditations and the idea is that new parts, such as new meditations, Yin yoga sequences, stories and more, will be added to the “new” version of the app at least twice a year. Unfortunately, we cannot add these to the old version.
We will notify everyone before this new update is shipped, but we already wanted to inform you about this change and also explain why the app is not available on Google Play.
Sorry for this but it is an inevitable side effect with all new technology,

‘Serenity Yin yoga is beautifully crafted. Thousands of words have been expressed in wonderful pictures, explaining postures and options, flows and benefits, and the practice and practicalities of Yin yoga. This book will enhance any yoga library.’
‘I am constantly surprised how much Yin yoga has grown in the last decade. Magdalena’s lovely book, which is now offered in English thanks to the skillful translation by Norman Blair, will make even more people captivated by its unique body/mind benefits.’
Here are some reviews from buyers on Amazon (who all gave the book Five Stars):
“This is a beautiful book. Sensitively written, it covers the thinking behind the practice, poses and sequences for different health conditions and emotional states. I particularly like the final section of the book – how different students of Magdalena’s incorporate yin yoga into their lives – from families, to friends and those who find time to practice after work. I love the way Magdalena talks about each person and the impact yin has had on their life. What ties the whole book together is the wonderful photography. It’s vibrant yet soft and exudes calm. If you already love yin, you’ll love this book. If you’re yet to discover the practice, this book may help you fall in love.” Claire W
“A wonderful read, inspiring, clear and yet simple enough to follow at any stage of the practice. The photographs are beautiful and perfectly embody the practice of yin yoga.
There are well designed sequence to follow and some excellent technical points for those who wish to delve deeper into Yin Yoga.
The quotes, words and insights into the practice, make this an excellent book – one that I can keep going back to day/month/year after another.” I.C.
“An absolute joy to read; for lovers of yin, this will re-ignite your passion for the practice and show a new light on the postures you know well. For newcomers it’s an illuminating read which conveys the simple joy of these practices. The authors passion for yin yoga shines through on each page.” Jess
