Yin Yoga uses long held postures that support us in accessing the deeper, more Yin parts of ourselves. In this training we will look at how Yin practice with its ancient yogic roots can affect our physical, energetic and emotional bodies. Through this understanding we will explore ways to incorporate Yin postures and philosophy into our teaching and practice.
The workshop will include:
Taoist philosophy as it applies to Yin Yoga
The Yin practice of non-striving and how it can influence our yoga and our life
The movement of Qi or Prana in the body, and how it can be affected by Yin practice.
Anatomy as it relates to the understanding of our own natural pattern
Sequencing your Yin practice or a Yin class
What it means to hold a safe, sacred space for a Yin practice
The weekend is suitable for all levels of practitioners and for Yoga teachers who are interested in including Yin in their teaching.
