About The Event
This training focuses on the incredibly therapeutic benefits of yin yoga on the physical and energetic bodies (the Annamaya and Pranamaya Koshas). We investigate the foundational shapes of yin yoga, applying the method of ‘inside out alignment’ to the reality of anatomical uniqueness, teaching participants how to modify the shapes to benefit their own skeleton and providing tools to effectively teach these concepts to future students.
Next we layer on the concept of Meridians (energetic pathways), elucidating: where they are, which organs they correspond to, which are yin and which are yang, and how to influence them with yin yoga. Our exploration of the esoteric Meridians intersects with the study of tangible fascia which culminates in the revelation of mind-blowing and intuition-validating theories.
The training is sprinkled with other tenets of yogic philosophy, such as nadis, gunas, kleshas, some of the Yoga Sutra of Patanjali, etc., to enrich participants’ understanding and provide context for the material.
Included in the training are daily yin yoga practices, and opportunities to work in partners and small groups for practical experience applying the information. You will viscerally integrate the information so that, upon completion, you feel confident teaching yin yoga and fielding students’ questions with true clarity.
Topics to be addressed:
* Theory of Yin/Yang/Tao and how these concepts are embedded in the practice, and are vastly illuminating in a quest for balance. * Tension and Compression, two of yoga’s primary stressors * Anatomy & Physiology: Bones, Muscles, Fascia and Organs.
* Anatomical Uniqueness and “Inside-Out Alignment
* Contraindications, and tailoring the practice to different populations.
* Meridians/Organ Systems.
* Breathing practices to invite the fullness of experience.
* Safe, Sacred and Neutral: prerequisite for personal YINquiry.
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) for Registered Yoga Teachers. This program reviews and builds on material covered in the Introduction to Yin Yoga Teacher Training, although that is not a pre-requisite for participation
