YIN & ADVANCED ANATOMY 1 (100HRS)
Oct

to Oct 17

YIN & ADVANCED ANATOMY 1 (100HRS)

Why this Training?

  • You wanna be a Yin teacher: Great! In this training, you will learn everything you need to teach your first Yin class by the time you finish. 

  • You love yoga and want to go deeper. Right On! This training is unique. It’s not run of the mill anatomy here. This is a deep dive into why we are all different… and so our yoga (or any movement discipline) has to be too. With the combined training, reading and discussion and interactive opportunities to learn, you'll be amazed at the complexity of anatomy study.

  • You wanna add teaching Yin to your personal training/fitness background. Fantastic! You already teach pilates or cross fit and you want to offer more to your clients. Good news, everything you learn in this course will add huge value to other modalities you already offer to enrich the suite of skills to boost your business and clientele.

This Yin Yoga course is open to all.

 

Yin 1: Bones Anatomy (Lower Body) & Yin Yoga (100-hrs)

Whether or not you intend to teach Yin Yoga, the Yin program offers in-depth bones anatomy which is extremely relevant to any yoga teacher, no matter your chosen style. This module is all about bone shapes, or what we call variable anatomy. We all have the same bones (almost!) in our bodies, but we all have very different bone shapes...just look around you. This course trains your eye.

We believe that in order to teach or practice yoga (or any physical movement discipline) optimally, we must at least appreciate, and even master this understanding. This knowledge is fundamental to a Yin practice where poses are held for a longer period of time. We begin here with the legs and hips.

Module 1 is also critical before progressing to Meridian and Qi theory (that is very popular).

Yin 1 introduces longer meditation and mindfulness practices. Oh, and we do a lot of Yin Yoga. Many who say they didn't think they would like it end up loving it...just sayin'!

What Students Say: “I think the most notable feature of your teaching style is your incredible attention to verbal assists. The way you describe how tiny movements or sensations can be made in order to improve poses is really rewarding when you can feel the difference!”
