Yin Yoga Foundational Teacher Training
Time & Location
About The Event
This training will be held live on Zoom!
This training is a fact-filled fascia-nating journey into understanding how and why to practice in this fashion, and my passion and enthusiasm for the subject keeps everyone alert and engaged … even on Zoom! As we all work to remain responsive to the ever-changing landscape of teaching yoga in an often chaotic and uncertain world, rest assured that being able to convey the true merits of 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 fast-paced yoga classes. This slow-paced, individually-tailored practice enhances resiliency, suppleness, and a sense of ease with reality. Many people are seeking this practice, and you can be well poised to deliver.
I will guide you through this training that focuses on the incredibly therapeutic benefits of yin yoga on the physical and energetic bodies (the Annamaya and Pranamaya Koshas), and leans into understanding how this practice addresses the Manomaya Kosha, as it helps the student connect with the Anandamaya Kosha.
We will investigate the foundational shapes of yin yoga, seeking to understand the method of this practice, and exploring appropriate ways of modifying poses to meet individual students’ needs. 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 will feel confident teaching yin yoga and also fielding students’ questions with confidence and 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.
• Nadis/Meridians, Patterns of Excess, Deficiency and Balance
• Breathing practices to prepare the student for a deeper experience
• Safe, Sacred and Neutral: prerequisite for personal YINquiry
