Anyone who knows me well, knows that my favorite style of yoga is Yin Yoga. It is therapeutic to my body, it is calming to my mind and it is cooling to my pitta dosha. I was trained in Yin Yoga by Joe Barnett, senior student of Paul Grilley. Paul’s understanding of bone structure differences as taught to me by Joe, has profoundly changed my teaching for the better. It has given me the platform to remind my students to accept their bodies as how they are, rather than how they think they should be. I have a huge awareness about my own practice as well that I did not previously have.
As part of my gratitude month, I have teamed up with Pranayama to give away Paul Grilley’s Yin Yoga DVD and book. Pranamaya is my favorite site to find media and courses about yoga and features some of the teachers I really dig such as Paul Grilley, Jill Miller and Scott Blossom. I am super excited to share this DVD and book with one of my readers because it is not only an essential part of any yoga library, but one of the best yoga practices you’ll experience!
