About Paul Grilley
Paul Grilley’s insightful yoga DVDs and online courses break yoga down to its fundamentals and stress the importance of looking at each unique body. Since no two human bodies are exactly alike, Paul offers that yoga cannot be taught in a uniform way; instead, it needs to be tailored to the individual and our unique bone structure. A Paul Grilley DVD will not only inform you about yoga, it might also change the way you practice or teach it.
Paul Grilley’s Background
Paul bases his teachings on various philosophies, including Hatha, Ashtanga, and Taoist yoga, which stems from the martial arts master Paulie Zink. Paul Grilley especially promotes yin yoga because of its ability to calm and center us. In today’s chaotic world, he feels that this is more beneficial than a purely muscle-building practice. At Pranamaya, a Paul Grilley DVD on specialties like Yin Yoga are always in high demand due to the popularity of these forms of yoga, as well as Paul’s special insight.
Learn from the Classic Lesson Anatomy for Yoga
The Paul Grilley DVDAnatomy for Yoga is an especially useful tool for teachers looking to gain a deeper understanding of how specific postures change depending on a specific student’s body composition. For example, a student whose arms are naturally a bit shorter may have a harder time reaching their hands to the floor in Dhandasana (staff pose). At the same time, a student with naturally longer arms may have to bend their arms to comfortably sit in this very same pose.
Yoga for Students of All Shapes and Sizes
Paul’s approach to yoga is of paramount importance when teaching yoga to students of all shapes and sizes, as well as with varying levels of physical fitness. Purchase one of his DVDs, such as the Paul Grilley Yin Yoga DVD or Chakra Theory and Meditation DVD, to see how versatile your teaching style or personal yoga practice can be, and how much more welcoming this approach is to students of all types.
