The Most Essential Yin Yoga DVD! Yoga is known to be one of the most calming forms of exercise. If you are looking to make your practice even more soothing, try a Yin Yoga DVD from Pranamaya. Yin Yoga is a style of yoga which targets the connective tissue of the hips, pelvis and lower spine through poses which are held for longer periods of time, typically up to five minutes, instead of the usual five to eight breaths. Many people find that this practice has a transformative effect on both body and mind.
This is a great resource for learning Yin Yoga.The 2-DVD set by Paul Grilley, Yin Yoga's foremost authority, is the definitive presentation on this essential practice. Yin Yoga emphasizes yoga postures held on the floor for long periods of time (usually 2 to 5 minutes or longer) with a minimum of muscular effort. The focus is on gentle stretching and stimulation of the fascia and connective tissues of the body. Rather than an exclusive style of practice, Yin Yoga is the necessary complement to muscular, dynamic strength-based yoga and fitness practices.
