Yin Yoga uses gentle long held postures practiced with an attitude of compassionate acceptance to awaken the more Yin parts of our physical, emotional and spiritual selves.
By promoting the flow of energy (Qi) through the energy channels (meridians) of our deep Yin core we can help bring health to our bodies and balance to our busy Yang style lives.
In my classes and workshops on Yin Yoga participants learn the theory and practice of Yin Yoga while gaining a basic understanding of the Chinese meridian system and it’s relationship to Yogic chakra theory. We also look at how our basic anatomical differences ultimately effect our yoga postures , helping us to bring a sense of self acceptance to our practice. We balance the Yin practices with more Yang style practices based on Hatha and Taoist tradition.
This Training, formally known as Level 1, is a stand alone course. In this 6-day training we will look at how this practice, with its ancient yogic roots, can affect our physical, energetic and emotional bodies. Through this understanding we will explore ways to lead a Yin class, and to incorporate Yin postures and philosophy into any practice.
The training includes:
• Taoist philosophy
• The Yin practice of non-striving and how it influences our lives and our teaching
• The movement of Qi or Prana in the body, and how it can be affected by Yin practice.
• Anatomy and the understanding of our own natural pattern (li)
• Understanding the postures and sequencing a Yin class
• What it means to hold a safe, sacred space for a Yin practice
The greatest emphasis in the training is placed on the experience of the practice itself. Time will also be spent in discussion of anatomy and philosophy, and as a community we’ll examine the postures and how they can affect us all differently as individuals.
+++ The training is suitable for teachers and dedicated practitioners. You don’t need to be a teacher or even experienced in Yin, just come with an open heart and a willing mind.+++
The training will consist of a minimum of 45 contact hours. In order to receive a certificate of completion, I will ask each student, during the 30 days following the training, to complete an additional 10 hours of independent study. After completing the independent study, each student will communicate their experience to me by mail or email. Your communication won’t be judged or graded, but I will answer all correspondence, and send a certificate of completion in a 50 hour Yin Yoga Teacher Training
The syllabuses for both trainings have been submitted to Yoga Alliance through certain Yoga Schools and are part of their 500 hour Teacher Trainings. If you have any questions about Yoga Alliance or the training, please feel free to email me at email@example.com
