The first DVD is Grilley's lectures, all 108 minutes of them. I will have to come back to list the chapter breakdowns. Basically, Grilley covers anatomical differences and how this impacts individual practice. He discusses what makes yin yoga unique and how it complements more yang yoga practices.
The second DVD contains the yoga practices themselves. These focus on yin yoga, naturally, although a few yang routines are offered as well. I'll provide the menu listing and then describe details.
*Hip Series, 70
*Spine Series, 62
*Infant Series, 63
*Warrior 1:35 Play Lop
*Flying Dragon 2:38 Play Loop
*Golden Seed 1:22 Play Loop
*Custom Yang Sequences
*Bonus Yin Practices
The heart of this DVD is the yin practices. For each, Grilley instructs a class of four students (including his wife), each of whom displays the poses showing different modifications and levels. Grilley states that the Hip Series focuses on the area above the knees to the lower spine, and it is designed to increase the range of motion in the lower pelvis and hips. The Spine Series places emphasis on the pelvis, sacrum, and spine; it includes several twists. Finally, Grilley describes the Infant Series as the "least yin" of the three. There is more work for the spine in a horizontal position, including a standing warm-up.
The yang practices aren't really follow-along routines, as they feature Grilley and his wife Suzy moving through flowing postures, often facing away from the camera. The Customized Yang option does provide a bit more in the way of actual practice choices, as here the viewer can mix and match practices to create short yang flows.
Finally, the Bonus Yin Practices opens a separate submenu. The routines themselves are in slideshow format, with a still photo to display the pose combined with Grilley's very brief voiceover cues naming when to come in and out of the pose. This menu is as follows:
*How to Use the Bonus Practices
*Butterfly Opening Sequence - 28:40
*Dragonfly Opening Sequence - 28:25
*Snail and Roots Sequence - 28:35
*Shoelace Sequence - 22:00
*Saddle Sequence - 25:02
I've owned this DVD for several months now, and I still feel like I've only scratched the surface of what it has to offer. I look forward to using and growing with Paul Grilley's Yin Yoga more over time.
When I looked on Amazon for yin yoga and found this dvd, I thought I would give it a shot. It has done wonders for me. I bought it in October '16 and I can now work out almost entirely without pain. At first I was doing the DVD at least three times a week. Now I strive to do the hip and spine sequences once a week the full way through. I always feel so much better when I am done. I also am now keenly aware when I am starting to get tight again.
This should be a requirement for everyone, but especially people who have gone through any type of major trauma and need recovery.
