Yin yoga is much more than holding the poses for long periods, it's about revealing our true nature and understanding the energetic pathways of the body (meridians).
This two-day training is designed for both dedicated yoga practitioners and yoga teachers to deepen their Yin yoga practice and knowledge. The training explores Yin anatomy, sequencing, safety in postures, an introduction to meridian theory, and mindfulness.
The long-held postures of Yin yoga provide a welcome contrast to the more modern Western world dynamic Yang dominated practices. Yin creates the space to activate the parasympathetic nervous system (rest and digest) and the longer holds work to unwind the body’s deeper layers of fascia and joints.
Encourages us to slow down and cultivates stillness to get to know ourselves.
Explores the philosophies of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), the internal energetic pathways, known as meridians or nadis, that carry Qi/Prana or life force.
Creates the conditions to release deeply held tension in the body and mind.
