Yin Yoga versus Restorative Yoga Series - Part 1

Topics

  • Are you confused? Join the club!
  • Yoga Energy’s Power Yin courses can be found here: Power Yin and Fascia Fundamentals Teacher Training and 50-hr Advance Power Yin Training Blended Format
  • Yin yoga is Taoist yoga and possibly the original hatha yoga that the ancients used to practice
  • Restorative yoga is fairly new, designed by contemporaries such as Iyengar
  • Paulie Zink, a contortionist, was the main person to introduce Taoist yoga into the United States
  • Paul Grilley was the next main influence on bringing Taoist yoga to the West
  • Sarah Powers changed the name of Taoist yoga to Yin yoga
  • What is the difference between a yin pose and yang pose?
  • Yin yoga is not Iyengar based yoga which means yin yoga is not restorative yoga
  • For those of you who remember anusara yoga, yin yoga is not alignment based yoga, so anusara teachers, quit yelling at us
  • When you are practicing proper yin yoga you should be experiencing moderate to intense discomfort while in the pose
  • When you are practicing proper restorative yoga, you should be extremely comfortable while in the pose
  • The source of the moderate to intense discomfort during yin yoga is key
  • Both a yin yoga practice and a restorative yoga practice have one thing in common and that is heating up the body in preparation for the specific practice
  • We created hot yin for our hot yoga studio
  • Out hot yin was created using the concepts of John Barnes, Gil Hedley, Paul Grilley and Gerald Pollack
  • The water has four phases, not just three
  • The key to phase transition of our fascia is pressure over time which generates heat

Some of what our listeners have said:

I believe that working with the chakras helps with ALL aspects of life - including business! I love your podcast and have enjoyed all of the episodes about the chakras - both for personal growth and business! To anyone that has not yet listened to this podcast, I HIGHLY recommend it! Great information with practical methods for applying that knowledge to making transformational lifestyle choices.
👍👍

It’s so funny how one “simple” word can have such a profound impact!

I just finished listening to episode 55. And, while I (of course) enjoyed the entire episode, I have to say that I LOVE the way you use “curiosity”! It’s definitely a challenge at times to remain unattached to outcomes and remain the observer. I feel like “curiosity” is the missing link to that equation! By approaching the situation through the perspective of the observer WITH CURIOSITY...that’s what makes it exciting to try new things without getting caught in the web of attachment!! Thank you for sharing that! (Where’s the exploding head emoji when you need it?) 🙏❤️🙏
