Banyen's Description: 

This comprehensive DVD includes nearly 4 hours of in-depth lectures and demonstrations of human anatomy as it relates to Yoga practice. Grilley’s material is divided into seven successive chapters starting with an overview of anatomical concepts and delving deep into each of the major joints of the body. Using a wide range of normal yoga students, a real skeleton and computer-generated models, Paul thoroughly demonstrates the fundamental differences between compressive and tensile stresses within a pose, and how each one must be addressed differently to get the most from any form of yoga practice.

The focus of this DVD is comparative anatomy: understanding the underlying skeletal structure of the body, how the bones differ significantly from person to person, and how to use that knowledge in gaining a much deeper understanding of our individual practices.  A wide range of students are presented in the DVD to illustrate the natural differences found in every single body, and how poses will never look the same on two different people. 3D computer animations show examples of the human skeleton at a deep level, and anatomical illustrations give names and relationships of the bones. This unique window inside the body, compared and contrasted with close examination of the students in the class, sheds a tremendous light upon a poorly understood aspect of yoga: how the bones affect the poses.

Also by Paul Grilley is Yin Yoga (2 DVDs).

Publisher’s Description: 

An invaluable resource for both yoga students and teachers, this comprehensive DVD includes nearly 4 hours of in-depth lectures, demonstrations and comparisons of human skeletal anatomy as it relates to yoga practice. Using a wide range of yoga students, acclaimed teacher Paul Grilley explains the key concepts of compression, tension, proportion and orientation. These concepts help us to understand why no two people will ever experience the same yoga posture in the same way. Paul's light-hearted yet provocative approach will challenge many misconceptions about yoga while providing the foundation for the development of a truly personal yoga practice. This DVD is encoded for all regions.
