Paul Grilley has done much to publicize and popularize yin yoga. He has been teaching yoga since 1980 and his special interest is in anatomy, fascia and its relevance to the practice of Hatha Yoga.

He teaches workshops and trainings throughout the United States and Europe. I consider myself very lucky for having chosen to take one of his Yin Yoga Teacher Trainings in Munich.

I did my Restorative Yoga Teacher Training with Adeline and I loved it. Adeline is teaching Yoga Basics, Hatha Yoga and Ashtanga and her teaching style is a quirky blend of alignment based yoga carefully held together with the fluidity of the Ashtanga Vinaysa practice.

Apart from public classes, she specialise in one-to-one Yoga Rehabilitation sessions – using yoga poses as a form and tool for improving function and mobility.
At Canvass, where I was also working as a yoga teacher in Singapore, art and yoga are practiced and taught as these two spheres work together to find freedom, balance and creative growth.
