about the training
Yin Yoga creates space for slowing down & returning to balance.
While most asana practice embraces the yang nature of effort & movement (like the sun salutation),
yin yoga embodies the complimenting qualities of softness, stillness, receptivity & inward awareness.
In Yin practice, long, grounded stretches help cultivate intuition & encourage surrender, releasing physical & emotional patterns that close us off.
In this teacher training immersion, we will explore the theory, science & anatomy of yin yoga, balanced with experiential & energetic aspects of practice. We will unpack contemporary research on fascia & healthy stretching. Reviewing each classical yin pose, you will learn not only the "how" of instructing it safely but also "why" in understanding the physical, emotional & energetic benefits. This course will also include an introduction to the principles of TMC (traditional Chinese Medicine), allowing you to design and theme inspired yin yoga and yin/yang yoga classes. We will also incorporate other traditional and therapeutic tools including pranayama, meditation, yoga yang, yoga nidra, restorative yoga and myofascial release. Our myofascial release sessions will share simple self-massage techniques with therapy balls, which will to release constricted tissue & complement & enhance our yin yoga practice.
The training is open to new and experienced teachers, as well as dedicated yoga students who desire to deepen their yin practice. Graduates will feel competent theming, sequencing and instruct meaningful yin yoga classes. Offering this unique expression of yoga to your students will create diversity within your teaching & support your students (& your own) busy life.
