Paul Grilley has been teaching Yoga since 1980 and his special interest is the teaching of anatomy. He practices yoga postures in the style of Paulie Zink and patterns his philosophy on the writings and researches of Dr. Hiroshi Motoyama —a yogi and scientist from Tokyo, Japan. This philosophy integrates the Taoist meridian and acupuncture theories of China with the yogic and tantric theories of India.
Paul's interest in yoga was sparked by reading the "Autobiography of a Yogi" in summer 1979. He relocated to Los Angeles in 1982 where he studied kinesiology at UCLA and taught hatha yoga until 1994.
Paul earned a Master of Arts degree from St. John's College, Santa Fe in summer 2000 and in 2005 was awarded an Honorary Ph.D. from the California Institute for Human Science for his efforts to clarify the latest theories on fascia and its relevance to the practice of hatha yoga.
Paul and his wife Suzee now spend their time administrating and teaching the Yin Yoga Teacher's Training program both in the USA and abroad.
