Virtual Foundational Yin Yoga Teacher Training: The Bones & The Breath
This weekend will transform your relationship with yoga! Become enamored with the bones, learn to suppilize fascia, restore energetic flow through meridians, and discover how to sequence classes, tailor poses and hold space for powerful transformation.
Time & Location

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.
Included in the training are daily yin yoga practices, and opportunities to shift into 'breakout rooms' 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 able to field 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
We will meet on Zoom: Friday - Sunday, October 14 - 16, 2022 from 9:30 am - 5:30 pm and conclude on Tuesday, October 18 from 6-9 pm. Our daily weekend schedule is elegantly crafted so that students remain engaged, curious and alert. Corina is skillful at keeping students focused on the material, offering metaphors that help clarify the material, using humor to keep the environment buoyant, and seeking to answer the questions that are behind the questions being asked. The general schedule is:
* Lecture from 9:30 - 11:30 am
* Short Break
* Practice from 11:45 am - 1:30 pm
* Lunch Break
* Learn Poses, Small Groups, Review Morning Lecture, Q&A: 2:30 - 5:30 pm
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.
"Corina’s teaching is egoless and pure. She is definitely doing her Dharma." – Swami Ashokananda, President and Spiritual Leader, Integral Yoga Institute, NYC
"Thank you, Corina. Your teacher training was perhaps the best I have ever taken. Great material, great delivery, great subject matter. Most of all, your vitality, warmth and generosity made it a pleasure to sit still for all those hours! Namaste," Martha P. (name modestly changed so as not to insult previous teachers)
“Corina Benner’s Yin Yoga Teacher Training is the real deal. The curriculum is unique and authentic as well as thorough. The experience contains just the right amount of depth, honesty, challenge and respect between teacher and student. Don’t miss out, yogi.” Hank G
