Program

Yin yoga brings your awareness through the tissues of your body releasing tension layer by layer. Becoming well versed in Yin yoga is like being able to apply a deep tissue massage to your body with your mind. Making that experiential connection to all you have heard or read about Chi you can begin to find a new way to experience your body.

This curriculum emphasizes the balance between eastern (ethereal) and western (material) sciences. With an in-depth exploration of meditation, subtle anatomy, and physical anatomy, learn to teach the subtle qualities of Yin yoga.

Using lectures and guided practice, you will develop your own strategies for teaching and working with students to guide them to listen to their bodies. The deeper you go with your training and self-exploration, the more you can help students learn from their own bodies to create a deep tissue massage with their mind.

The training consists of four primary formats of imbuing the content. The focus is on practicing the content via guided Yin sessions and meditation techniques alongside the significant practice of each pose in the asana lab.

Providing the groundwork for the practice are the lectures, which are presented via projector and slide show. Dialogue plays an important role throughout in connecting the content with each student and addressing their questions. Finally, the course requires some at-home study prior to and during the training to ensure that the individual students are processing the material in their own way. This is accomplished through readings, journaling, and an essay.

There are no formal tests in the course as Athina Tamaresi maintains an ongoing evaluation of student comprehension through various means, including the teaching practicum at the end. They keep it super casual and are there to support you at each moment.
