Overview

There are two sides of yoga, the “Yin” and the “Yang.” This Yin Yoga book will introduce you to Yin Yoga as an integrated practice that can change your entire approach to how you practice. The updated 10th Anniversary edition of Yin Yoga: Outline of a Quiet Practice by Paul Grilley is enhanced with 34 pages of new material describing the evolution of Yin Yoga over the past decade.

This Yin Yoga book also contains reference materials on anatomy and the practice of Yin Yoga, plus you have the option of supplementing it with a Paul Grilley DVD! With both you’ll learn the Yin aspect of yoga, which includes using postures that stretch connective tissue. This differs from the commonly practiced Yang that focuses mostly on using muscles. The Yin aspect has been rarely used until recently, even though it’s vital for balanced physical and mental health.

The major difference between Yin and Yang Yoga is that Yin postures should be done when your muscles are relaxed, and the poses should be held for an extended period of time. The purpose of this is to stretch the connective tissue, which doesn’t stretch in the same manner as muscle tissue. Muscle tissue doesn’t respond well to a brief stretch. Yin Yoga is also a great practice for those looking to practice meditation, as it helps control breathing. Expand your knowledge of this practice with Paul Grilley’s Yin Yoga: Outline of a Quiet Practice.

Media Reviews

"Yoga as practiced in North America is almost exclusively "yang" in nature, meaning that it relies upon postures that aggressively stretch the muscles. Paul Grilley offers his book Yin Yoga: Outline of a Quiet Practice as a counterbalance to this trend. Yin yoga, he says, should only be done when muscles are already relaxed, and postures should be held for long periods at least several minutes. Yin yoga can be used to unwind, and is particularly appropriate for the end of the day. Anyone who thinks that yin yoga sounds wimpy should gaze hard at the 35 photographs in this book, which illustrate some pretty challenging poses. Grilley's technique offers a unique blend of yoga meditation and Taoist principles."

About A Paul Grilley DVD Can Change Your Approach to Yoga

A Paul Grilley DVD Can Change Your Approach to Yoga

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 Grilley began practicing yoga in 1979 after reading The Autobiography of a Yogi by Paramahansa Yogananada. He moved to Los Angeles in 1982 where he studied and taught yoga for 12 years. In 1988 he read Theories of the Chakras by Dr. Hiroshi Motoyama. Paul and his wife Suzee have been active students of Dr. Motoyama ever since.  

Paul started his studies of anatomy with Dr. Garry Parker in 1979. He continued his studies at UCLA where he took courses in anatomy and kinesiology. He earned a M.A. from St. John's College, Santa Fe in summer 2000 and an Honorary Ph.D. in 2005 from the California Institute for Human Science for his efforts to clarify the latest theories on fascia and its relevance to the practice of hatha yoga. He enjoys reading science and esoteric literature, trying to find connections between the two.

Paul and his wife Suzee now spend their time administrating and teaching the Yin Yoga Teacher's Training program both in the USA and abroad.

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 DVD entitled Yin Yoga 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.
