The focus of Yin Yoga is on the rejuvenation of the physical and mental body, by maintaining a certain set of asanas for 3 to 5 minutes, sometimes even more, and allowing gentle tension and compression to be applied to our tissues.

 

In this training we will explore:

  • Yin Yoga asana practice— how, why and when to practice this style safely and effectively
  • Yin yoga Philosophy (Taoist principles, yin vs yang)
  • Yoga Anatomy (Connective tissues, compression vs tension, fascia structure)
  • Introduction to the Chinese Meridians and Organ health (practice sequences for the kidneys, liver, etc.)
  • Balancing the Yin style with a Yang practice to support structural strength and stability
  • The primary focus of breath in asana: length, depth and direction 
  • Mindfulness in asana and Meditation practice
  • The art of teaching and how to sequence a yin yoga class
  • The use of touch and hands-on adjustments
  • Skilful verbal communication

As final assessment, there will be a written test and a practical teaching experience, where every student will create his/her own yin yoga sequence.
