About the course

The approach

This teacher training course approaches yoga from an energetical perspective, yet you will learn a lot about the physical part as well in a grounded, down-to-earth way. Yin and Yang is the symbol of polarities that you encounter everywhere in your dualistic world. In your context, yin is the principle of the feminine, receptive, still, intuitive, and meditative quality, while yang is the principle of the masculine, active, and expressing quality.

In the cosmic order, these two qualities have their eternal flow and dance where they always balance each other out and come back to balance. In your life, you have these qualities as well but sometimes you get out of balance. Especially as most of you live in a western society, where usually the “doing” part is exaggerated and there is little time-space for nurturing the quietude, the receptivity, and the connection to your own source.

Yin yoga

It is a deeply meditative style, rooted in Daoism and traditional Hatha yoga. You work mainly with floor poses that you hold for a longer time, creating a deep stretching effect on muscles, ligaments, tendons, and the fascia, at the same time compressing the joints and bones. Through Yin yoga, you activate the energy flow in the energy channels (meridians - traditional Chinese medicine), clearing blockages and creating a better flow of qi, life force energy, nurturing your organs and your whole system in general.

This is a beautiful practice to deepen mindful and soulful awareness and it also works on your deeper layers of the physical body (versus the yang practice mainly working with the superficial muscles). In Yin yoga, you have access to the connective tissues, like joints, bones, ligaments, and tendons, and of course, the fascia that connects all the parts of your body like a net. With the popular Yin teacher training module, you will be able to create a Yin class or session, long or short for a group, for an individual session, or for yourself.

You will learn transition poses and intelligent ways of sequencing - taking into consideration pose families, anatomical guidelines, and meridian therapy. You will be enabled to work on a one-on-one with clients with specific needs, complaints, and anatomical constitution. With the Yang teacher training module, you will be able to create a soulful, energizing, uplifting flow class based on energetical sequencing, connected to the meridians, and the five elements, and according to an anatomical approach (sequence for hips, shoulders, etc).

You will learn the basic poses both for the yin and yang practices and you will be able to blend them together in a beautifully harmonious way to promote balance, healing, and growth on the soulful journey. You will study mantras, mudras, and breathing techniques, as well as specific meditations.

Curriculum

You will have soulful excursions and sunrise and sunset rituals included in the program. The Yang module in person will also offer you a 30-hour preparation work, video sessions about the fundamentals of Hatha and Vinyasa yoga, and yoga philosophy and anatomy to watch and practice before you arrive. This Yin Yang yoga teacher training will enable you to learn the basics of Hatha yoga, philosophy, anatomy, asanas, meditation fundamentals, and teaching these.

However, this will not be the only content as you will study the Chinese five elements theory and learn about the concept of Yin and Yang and how to create a balanced life that is connected to all elements in balance within yourself. You will learn to balance the elements through yin and yang practices, five elements of gentle Vinyasa flow, and also deeply healing soulful five elements of Yin yoga practices. You will learn to sequence and teach Yang, Yin, and Yin-Yang practices, all in one training.

Understanding that yoga is for everyone and a good, skillful yoga teacher should be able to tailor classes to each and everyone's individual needs. You will learn modifications and adjustments to support the physical body, but also tools of Buddhist psychology, spiritual and holistic psychology to create an emotional balance and spiritual growth within yourself and facilitate this in your students.

Learn to hold space and skillfully navigate your students towards a more centered, relaxed, conscious, and energized state of being. Learn to recognize the symptoms of imbalance of each element and learn to balance them out with Yin, Yang, and Yin-Yang practices, mudras, mantras, and meditation. You need to participate in all sessions in the training and complete written coursework and a teaching video after the course is sent in.

1. What is the Yin energy about?

It is nourishing, stabilizing, calming, allowing, sensing, and feeling quality within yourself, the ability to drop down into the presence that contains it all or restores it all. Just be.

2. What is the Yang energy about?

It is your ability to rise, focus, be strong, and achieve some things in life. Engagement, action, achievements, and dedication.

3. What are the Chinese five elements about?

  • Water: Vitality, courage, confidence, ability to flow with life, trust the changes, and intuition
  • Wood: Creativity, balance, growth focus, manifestation, vision, and holding it all together
  • Earth: Stability, ability to feel at home, accepted, nourished, loved, and supported. Your needs and your connection to your physical body. Topics such as eating and rest, rhythms, rituals, and routines.
  • Fire: Connection to your spirit, your light, your enthusiasm, the joy of life, and the ability to share and connect, communicate and express.
  • Metal: Your ability to look at life from a higher perspective, attachments and detachment, letting go and highest purpose, ambitions, and inner leadership, learning, and connection to God, a higher spirit. Values in life. Sacredness, gratitude.

In this training, you will explore all these elements and learn to work with them in your yoga practices, teachings, and classes.

4. Tantric and mindful Buddhist approach

This course is a deeply transformative healing journey as only by healing and loving yourself first then you can offer these qualities to others by going through the experience instead of just talking about the theories of it. There will be a lot of focus on your personal experience and opening up to senses, listening, and landing in your true nature.

Yin yoga has a deeply healing effect. And even though every person is different, every story is different, and a healing process requires not only the realization of the patterns and underlying emotional memories and tensions behind every disease but also new conscious choices about your life, you can acknowledge that with appropriate sequences you can rebalance major imbalances in the body with regular Yin practice.

The body imbalances such as allergies, digestive, hormonal problems, back problems, mental problems, blood pressure problems, anxiety symptoms, emotional blockages, and lack of energy, and the emotional disorders such as lack of determination, trust, and confidence, anger problems, depression, fears can all be nurtured by appropriate Yin practice with great results.

Eventually, it can transform your life into a more loving, more still, more attentive and caring, enjoyable journey, than the fast-paced western pattern. Adding the Yang to the Yin, you will be able to get into a soulful flow that moves so much fresh and balanced energy in your body that it can release much easier tensions, and you can step onto a higher, brighter state of awareness yourself.
