About the Event
Going Within Yin Yoga 40-hr Teacher Training
In a world that is moving so fast, we invite you to breathe deep, slow down, tune in, and go within w/Yin Yoga. Explore through direct experience how Yin Yoga works on the deeper levels to quiet the mind, balance the emotions, cultivate self-compassion,joint circulation and learn how to share this practice with the world during such a needed time!
Yin Yoga stretches and targets both the deep connective tissues between the muscles and the fascia throughout the body. The aim is to increase circulation in the joints and improve flexibility as the poses stretch and exercise the bone and joint areas. This practice often targets the lower back, hips and hamstrings allowing practitioners to experience relief from tightness occurring in these areas whilst encouraging students to maintain a non-judgmental, mindful-inward focus.
Yin Yoga focuses on passive tissue, bone, tendons, joints, and ligaments. In Yin Yoga practitioners connect with the subtle body energy and cultivate states of deep mindfulness through stillness and breath. Yin Yoga is a holistic and intelligent practice. As practitioners stay longer in the postures they create space where habitual thinking patterns can be identified and investigated while cultivating loving kindness and self-compassion. Yin Yoga and Mindfulness go hand-in-hand and are excellent tools that allow us to cultivate present-moment awareness and reduce unnecessary suffering.
The training will provide additional depth to experienced teachers and is also suitable for beginners that may have little to no experience with Yin Yoga and will provide the foundation to teach this practice with confidence by focusing on different aspects of the art of teaching this beautiful practice.
