The 10th Anniversary Edition of Yin Yoga: Outline of a Quiet Practice by Paul Grilley brings together in a fresh way the ancient wisdom of acupuncture and Taoism with Hindu yoga practices. With over 80,000 copies sold, Grilley's book has been enhanced with new materials describing the evolution of Yin Yoga within the Yoga world over the last decade plus new reference materials on anatomy and the practice of Yin Yoga. Yoga as practiced in the US is almost exclusively Yang or muscular in nature. The Yin aspect of Yoga (using postures that stretch connective tissue) is virtually unknown but vital for a balanced approach to physical and mental health. Paul Grilley outlines how to practice postures in a Yin way. Grilley includes an explanation of Modern Meridian Theory, which states that the meridians of acupuncture theory are currents flowing through the connective tissues of the body. Yin Yoga is specifically designed to address these tissues. The two major differences between a Yin and a Yang Yoga practice are that Yin postures should be done with the muscles relaxed and should be held a long time. This is because connective tissue does not stretch like muscle and will not respond well to brief stresses. In addition, Yin Yoga better prepares people for meditation. For yoga practitioners looking for something beyond physical postures. Yin Yoga addresses the deeper spiritual dimensions of yoga, with helpful sections on chakras, breathing exercises, and meditation.

In today's fast-paced world, it's easy to lose the balance in our lives and the connection with our bodies. Yin Yoga offers a remedy to the stress and hustle of everyday life.

Yin yoga concentrates on holding and breathing through floor-based poses, targeting your fascia and connective tissues and allowing you the time and space to clear your mind and stretch your body. The perfect complement to an active yang lifestyle and great for bringing you back into balance.
Your KNEE is in PAIN. Now you hobble out of class. This is what happened to Elina Sinisalo, massage therapist and yoga practitioner. She went to yoga, and hurt her knee. As a therapist she worked on her knee, but it never really felt right again. Renowned Thai Massage and Yoga Teacher Training Consultant GabeYoga, was coming to Leipzig, Germany to lead a Thai Yoga training. Elina enrolled in the course and had asked his opinion to her knee issue. When GabeYoga suggested the pain was do to restriction still at the hip, Elina was not convinced. GabeYoga suggested a few poses he called “Yin Poses,” and said if she chose to move through them for only 3-5 min each, not more than 20 min total, she will feel better in less than 30 days. A few months later Elina emailed him to tell him that while she did not believe his assessment, and took her awhile to commit to what he suggested. She finally went through the sequence every day for a week before bed, and elated had NO PAIN in the knee in her favorite yoga pose (that caused the problem to begin with). She could not believe how yin yoga helped healed her knee. How the specific sequence GabeYoga suggested was so effective and counter intuitive to what she thought.

While everyone has the ability to improve their lives, many people are lacking the knowledge and tools needed to begin. I was once one of these people, working as a detective with the police force. Overcome by stress, fear, and unrest, I turned to the yogic lifestyle, becoming a certified Experienced Yoga Alliance Registered Yoga Teacher (E-RYT 500) and a Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Provider (YACEP). After fifteen years of walking the path of the yogi on my spiritual quest, this is what I have discovered, and I would like to share with you this knowledge and the tools needed to accomplish your goal of a better life. While you may be familiar with standard Yoga classes, Yin yoga is much more powerful and meditative. This process focuses on promoting a deep physical, spiritual, and mental awareness. Rather than just working the surface of your joints and muscles, you can work your deeper tissues. Your connective tissues and fascia are included in the poses as well. People often lose vital flexibility as they age, with stiffness in the fascia causing pain, which results in the muscles becoming overworked. Yin yoga helps to increase flexibility and overall health as you age, reducing the risk of injury. By simply reading this book, you can gain the insight and understanding you need to start practicing Yin yoga today. At this point in your life, you may be the caterpillar that, with time and dedication, transforms into a butterfly through the power of the yogic lifestyle. All you have to do is begin.
