Yin Yoga versus Restorative Yoga Series - Part 1


  • 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
