Yin Yoga - 55 Hours
Yin yoga is a more modern adjunct to traditional yoga that focuses on your deep connective tissues, like your fascia, ligaments, joints, and bones. It’s slower and shapes are held for longer periods of time, allowing you to stretch and lengthen your connective tissue. The incorporation of breath creates a meditative practice that relaxes your mind and body and helps you be comfortable with discomfort.
The practice of yin yoga is based on the Taoist principle of Qi (energy) that runs through our bodies. By stretching and deepening into poses, we’re opening up any blockages and releasing that energy to flow freely.
Yin yoga is the art and benefits of slowing down. This foundational program will immerse you in all things yin – philosophy, anatomy, poses, breath, meridian theory and meditative practice. The awareness that you will cultivate from this style of yoga, will inform and enhance all other yoga, movement and embodied practices. You’ll get to be in a community with like-minded individuals to explore your contemplative practice. Find your center among the busyness of life and let Yin permeate your natural Being. Become yin-spired!
Yin Yoga is about finding your goldilocks zone, and being able to stay in it, developing equanimity. We do this through support, breath and mindfulness techniques. It is an opportunity to examine your mind and its habits. Our training covers the foundations you will need to know to teach, whilst diving deeper into fascia, energetics and meridians. This Yin Yoga Training is a blend of a class, meditation, breathwork, presentations and hands on exploration.
After receiving your certificate, you can count it towards your continuing education units with Yoga Alliance and towards your 300/500-hour Phoenix Community Yoga certificate. In addition, you may teach Yin Yoga if you are already a 200-hour certified instructor.
