While yoga practiced in the West is mostly yang or muscular in nature, the lesser known yin aspect of yoga is vital for a balanced approach to physical and mental health. The main differences between a yin and a yang yoga practice are that yin postures should be done with the muscles relaxed and be held a long time. As Grilley describes, yin yoga is specifically designed to address the tissues discussed in the Modern Meridian Theory, which states that the meridians of acupuncture theory are currents flowing through the connective tissues of the body.
Grilley's technique offers a unique blend of yoga meditation and Taoist principles. Paul Grilley's Yin Yoga can help people find a place of peace and quiet within themselves. Grilley brings understanding, experience and lighthearted humility to all his teaching. I highly recommend this book. Paul Grilley has been teaching Yoga since and his special interest is the teaching of Anatomy.
Yin Yoga is a slow-paced style of yoga as exercise , incorporating principles of traditional Chinese medicine , with asanas postures that are held for longer periods of time than in other styles. For beginners, asanas may be held from 45 seconds to two minutes; more advanced practitioners may stay in one asana for five minutes or more. The sequences of postures are meant to stimulate the channels of the subtle body known as meridians in Chinese medicine and as nadis in Hatha yoga. Yin Yoga poses apply moderate stress to the connective tissues of the body—the tendons , fasciae , and ligaments —with the aim of increasing circulation in the joints and improving flexibility. A more meditative approach to yoga, its goals are awareness of inner silence, and bringing to light a universal, interconnecting quality. As taught by Grilley and Powers, it is not intended as a complete practice in itself, but as a complement to more active forms of yoga and exercise. However, Zink's approach includes the full range of Taoist yoga, both yin and conventional.
