Yin Yoga Teacher Training
Yin Yoga is a reflective mind/body practice that targets the connective tissue, joints, meridians (energy channels) and organs of the body. This practice provides an opportunity for a deeper release and transformation of energetic congestion in the body (as a result of held emotions, habitual thought patterns, stress and life experiences). This training provides a comprehensive understanding of the yin yoga format; its effects on subtle anatomy (koshas and chakras), how to teach and sequence the basic yin poses and how to assist students in finding an appropriate level of safe practice.
Participants in this training earn 20 hours of continuing education with Yoga Alliance.
