For ALL Yoga Teachers and Students!

 This 25-hour training is designed for both yoga teachers and dedicated yoga practitioners to delve deep into the practice and theory of Yin Yoga, and explore anatomy, sequencing, safety in postures, introduction to meridian theory, and mindfulness.

Program Outline

This training will benefit teachers, practitioners and students alike. It can be used as a therapeutic treatment or as a personal practice. You don’t need to have the desire to teach, only the openness to fully immerse yourself in yoga.
 
More and more practitioners are exploring Yin Yoga. This is a natural reaction to what has become an extremely yang health culture. Yin yoga is the relaxed practice of floor postures for three to five minutes at a time.
 
A yin practice emphasizes the connective tissues of the hips, thighs, pelvis and lower spine. It prepares the body and mind for longer meditation practices. By drawing the student’s awareness away from the muscles and deeper into the bones, a deep level of relaxed focus is achieved.
 
This 25-hour intensive is a strong complement for a current Yoga Teacher of any style. It can also be a springboard for the student who is ready to take the leap into a broader perspective and fuller appreciation of the practice of Yin Yoga.
 
Topics covered include:
 
  • What is Yin Yoga?
  • Why practice Yin Yoga?
  • How to practice Yin Yoga (the three tattvas of Yin Yoga)
  • Tension vs compression
  • Foundational Yin Yoga asanas: contraindications, modifications and alternatives, counter poses, posture clinics of 16-20 foundational asanas.
  • Props and how to use them for the foundational poses
  • Sequencing a Beginner’s Yin Yoga class
  • Practice Teaching
