Yin Yoga Level I Teacher Certification
Yin Yoga is a deep, meditative and often profound practice. Infused with longer, more passive holds, the yin style involves surrendering into poses and exploring them for longer periods of time in order to let go of tensions stored in the body and to calm the nervous system.
Practicing this way helps to target deeper connective tissues especially around the hips, pelvis and lower spine. This practice helps us to balance our emotions, still our minds, and open the deep connective tissues in the body using various yin asanas.
This course does not go into depth about the meridians as associated with yin yoga. That will be covered in the Level II training that will be offered at a later date. However, you will still be able to teach yin yoga after taking the Level I training. Level II just takes the practice deeper.
This course is for yoga teachers who want to:
- deepen their own practice
- add a new modality to their teacher toolbox
- reach new student populations who need to address issues within the tendons, ligaments, fascia, and/or joints.
You will learn:
- Origin and Definition of Yin Yoga
- Pranayama and Meditation Techniques
- How to Practice Yin Yoga with Intention & Attention
- All About Props
- 30+ Yin Asanas (poses) and How to Sequence Them
- A manual with 8 Yin Yoga Sequences
