According to Paul Grilley, Yin Yoga is not about strengthening your muscles, but about releasing your muscles by training your connective tissue and joints. "It's not the muscle power that makes us fit," says Paul. "It's about the flexibility of the joints and connective tissue." He gives professional athletes as an example: they usually did not end their career because of lack of muscles, but because of problems with their joints.
Paul Grilley has written several books about Yin Yoga and has released several DVDs. You can buy these Paul Grilley books and DVDs at the Yoga Shop.
