About The Event
Yin Yoga Diving Deeper Teacher Training: Explore Subtle Terrain in Yin Yoga - Thoughts, Feelings, Beliefs and Transformation
Beyond its obvious and measurable physical benefits, Yin Yoga practice affects and influences deeper levels of being. Through tension and compression, the stretch and the squeeze in Yoga poses, we build energy and also dissipate energetic patterns of disharmony. Thoughts and feelings, which are often influenced by subconscious belief systems, contribute to those energetic patterns. Shining the light of consciousness on habitual patterns of perceiving and reacting to life empowers the practitioner to engage life directly in the moment. In this training we will explore the Manomaya Kosha (relating to the mental/emotional body) and Vijnanamaya Kosha (relating to the intuitive/wisdom body), seeking to understand how the organs and meridians correspond to thoughts and feelings, and how they interact within this dynamic, living system. We’ll also explore chakras, and the powerful realm of unconscious belief systems, learning to reality-test negative patterns and unleashing the possibility of liberation and transformation. Included in the training are daily yin yoga classes designed to take you deep into your somatic and intuitive wisdom, and opportunities to work in pairs and small groups to practically apply the lessons learned. This is a highly experiential training designed to help participants viscerally integrate information, inviting personal healing while cultivating the skills necessary to hold space for students’ transformational journeys. Included in the Training:
- Organs and Emotions, Patterns of Excess, Deficiency and Balance
- Meridians, Chakras, Life Issues and Associations
- A.A.F.F.R.: a formula for responding to emotional responses in yin yoga practice
- Breathing practices to invite the fullness of experience
- Safe, Sacred and Neutral: prerequisite for personal YINquiry
This training is a fact-filled fascinating journey into understanding how and why to practice in this fashion, and Corina's passion and enthusiasm for the subject keeps everyone alert and engaged. As all of us work to remain responsive to the ever-changing landscape of teaching yoga in an often chaotic and uncertain world, be assured you that being able to convey the true merits of the yin yoga practice is a skill for your toolbox that will benefit everyone, including yourself. The practice lends itself quite easily to an online platform, and you may be able to reach people who have felt alienated by the current culture of yoga. This slow-paced, individually-tailored practice does so much to enhance resiliency, suppleness, and a sense of ease with reality. More people need this practice, and you can be well poised to deliver.
This training is open to yoga teachers of all traditions as well as curious and dedicated yin yoga students. Participants will receive a certificate of completion which can be applied as “Continuing Education Units” (CEU’s) with the Yoga Alliance for Registered Yoga Teachers.
