30 hour yin teacher training

c/o David Kim

about.

Yin Yoga is quickly becoming one of the most influential styles of yoga in the world.  A much-needed counterbalance to Power or Vinyasa styles, Yin exercises our body and mind through longer, passive postures that apply gentle stress to our joint tissues via bodyweight and gravity.

Yin anatomy combines Eastern and Western perspectives by highlighting the unique potential – rather than standardized “norms” — of our bodies.   This course empowers teachers to move beyond rote verbal cues and aesthetically “pretty” poses, by developing a sharper eye for different body types and a more spacious understanding of asana.   We will learn how to develop a meditative classroom space that coaxes students to see beyond their habitual distractions, where most suffering originates.  

In this Foundational Course, you will learn:

    • Fundamental Yin Yoga Postures, Modifications, and Sequences
    • Functional Anatomy Focused on Skeletal Variations, Proportions, and Connective-Tissue Research
    • How To Understand Bodies, Instead of Memorizing Poses
    • How To Integrate Mindfulness Into Asana and Meditation
    • How To Integrate a Yin Approach Into Yang-style classes

testimonials.

I found David to be delightful human being and also an incredibly knowledgeable person. 

His joy and enthusiasm for anatomy is infectious and brought not only a deeper understanding but also entertainment to an otherwise quite dry subject. 

I really appreciated his Yin classes and his lessons in sequencing and options for students.  

I thought that the Facebook group where pictures and writings and additional information was shared to be very helpful and I was also very happy that the class-size was not too huge and we got a lot of individual attention during the course and also during the break times. He was very open to all our questions and took the time share everything he knows with us. 

I would absolutely recommend his YTT to anyone new yogis and experienced ones.

As a huge yin yoga enthusiast, the 30 hour Yin Teacher Training was the perfect way to gain more insight into the yin asanas and it’s connection to the human anatomy (without having to be overwhelmed by a full-blown 200 hour teacher training!).

David’s scientific approach to the human body (bone structure, tension vs compression) opened my eyes to how every body is unique, and how the yin practice can be tailored to just about anyone. David was very informative, clear and concise in his teachings, which made things easier to digest and understand.

David’s yin classes were also well thought of and executed. I especially appreciated that The Flow studio was well equipped with the necessary props (e.g. mats, blocks, straps, bolsters), and how David encouraged us to use them to help strengthen our practice.
