30 hour Yin Yoga Teacher Training.

c/o David Kim

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
Dates: 25 – 28 July 2019
Time: 930am – 6pm (1 hour lunch break)
