Good Presentation Review by Daniel
This is a good presentation that goes into the natural differences of the human bone structure. It makes a good point that people will not respond the same when you give them certain alignment cues, because their structural differences. But I would have liked to see more examples of applications in different asanas. (Posted on 9/5/2010)

Awesome! Review by Denise Kaufman
Paul has taken his work to a whole new level in this awesome course. I wish I could wave a wand and have it shown in every yoga studio in the world. It would prevent injuries (both physical and psychological) and open the doorway to deep freedom and wisdom in peoples's practice.
Thank you, Pranamaya, for this brilliant offering!!

Approachable and Useful Review by Jessica
I'm a huge fan of Paul's work and this is a great, easy to use lecture covering several key joints, their movement patterns, and how individual's practice is influenced in foundational asana by their skeletal structure. Not as overwhelming as the full Anatomy for Yoga DVD, this is an essential resource for teaching basic classes and poses. (Posted on 8/17/2010)

About Paul Grilley

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.

Quality Teaching at a Fair Price

Our media at Pranamaya is an excellent way to round out your yoga teaching style or personal yoga practice without breaking the bank. There are numerous yoga retreats, vacations, workshops, and teacher trainings that provide you with instruction from famous teachers such as those on the roster of master teachers at Pranamaya. The difference in buying one of our products is that these teachings come to you at a fraction of the price, without compromising on the quality of the instruction and your learning.

Why wait? Purchase a Paul Grilley DVD or another one of our outstanding Pranamaya products to deepen your yoga journey today.
