Recommended Yin DVDs
Recently I've had conversations with several people about how to practice at home when you aren't able to get to class. There are basically two options. One is to create your own home practice (which I'm more than happy to help you with) or to purchase DVDs to practice with that will guide you through a sequence of poses with appropriate hold times. I am flattered and encouraged by those who have asked if I have a video of my own. I hope to one day have something you can use but until then I recommend the following DVDs that I have in my own collection. I am sure there are others that are just as good but I do not have personal experience with those DVDs or the instructors. Not only do I have Sarah and Paul's DVDs but I have studied with both of them in person.
Sarah Powers has several DVDs out. The ones that include Yin sessions are "Yin and Vinyasa Yoga DVD" and "Insight Yoga DVD". Both also include yang/flow sessions for a balanced practice.
Paul Grilley also has several DVDs. The one with Yin practices is "Yin Yoga". I also highly recommend his "Anatomy for Yoga" DVD. Great way to learn about the structure of your own body and why some poses may be more challenging for you to do.
