Anatomy for Yoga by Paul Grilley
Paul Grilley’s Anatomy for Yoga DVD may change the way you practice or teach yoga. The essential lesson this DVD teaches is that every person has skeletal anatomy unique to themselves. Thismeans that we will not all look the same in our yoga poses. Instead of correcting the body so that it conforms to poses demonstrated in book illustrations, teachers should allow the body to form in a way that makes sense for the individual student.
Paul Grilley’s DVD Anatomy for Yoga explains his perspective in detail. He presents a variety of yoga practitioners to show how their bodies naturally go into poses differently due to the structure of their anatomy. Instead of assuming a student in class is not able to rotate their arm completely due to inappropriate technique, he shows that that their shoulder may be structured in a way that inhibits rotation.
