“We are all unique (perfect in our own way) as Paul Grilley says…
“Every yoga pose is bad for somebody. Everyone’s anatomy and history are unique, and this means that each pose affects each person differently. Usually the difference is trivial, but it can sometimes be significant and harmful. Do not become fixated on “mastering a pose.” The poses are meant to be therapeutic, not to challenge your pride. Some poses may be uncomfortable but result in a healthy response, but other poses might just be bad for you.”
Therefore – always work to your own ability. Yoga is not a competition – mind your own business, whatever is going on on the mat next to you, has got nothing to do with you…!”
What is the difference between Yin and Yang Yoga?
Yin – a slow-paced style of yoga where sequences of deliciously deep floor poses or asanas are held for longer periods of time. This meditative practice works on deeper connective tissues in the joints to enhance and stimulate the chi-flow to the meridian and organ systems and open the joints. Therefor it relaxes, restores and rejuvenates. Bringing the moisture back into our dry and brittle areas, helping us to regain freedom in our body. Yin yoga is also an essential complement to more active styles of yoga, sport and fitness and offers the opportunity to develop our thoughtful nature.
Yang – a more active practice incorporating a continuous flowing sequence of poses that strengthens the muscles, maintains core stability, improves flexibility and agility and enhances creativity and active energy. Yang yoga has rhythm and repetition and is a combination of yoga and Tai Chi.
