Program

What is Yin Yoga?

Yin yoga is a powerful style of yoga that works towards physically unraveling the body’s matrix of tension, activating the parasympathetic nervous system, mentally transitions the mind into a meditative state, emotionally relaxes the body-mind complex and energetically stimulates the flow of qi. Yin yoga holds the key to unlocking the full potential of a holistic and comprehensive yoga practice, both on and off the mat.

If you are stuck in your teaching, want to refresh your approach to yoga, ignite your body-mind consciousness or enhance your self- practice or teaching with a complementing style of yoga then this course is for you.

Yin yoga is the epitome of self-care and self-love. When one can sit with the mind to take care of oneself then the seed of health and wellness is planted, inside and out. Yin Yoga provides and allows this space to transition from a human doing back to an authentic human being.

You will come away with an abundance of confidence to guide your own practice focusing on physical and energetic target areas as well as being prepared to share this practice with others.

Experiencing is fundamental to learning

You will explore how Yin yoga and its application of gentle, sustained and monitored tension and compression to the body can effect the functionality of the entire system, physically and emotionally. The practice comprises longer and more static holds than Hatha yoga. With the use of floor based yoga asana, for muscle relaxation and myofascial release, you will bridge the gap between body and mind, seamlessly, allowing for a meditative and therapeutic experience.

Yin yoga focuses on strengthening the inter-connectivity of the physical, mental, emotional and energetic dimensions of the body that everyday life can filter down to a level that is consciously or unconsciously unhealthy.

This course offers you the time to slow down and work on bringing yourself back into the parasympathetic nervous response, rest and digest. This is where rejuvenation, relaxation and restoration reside. You will dive deeper into the connection of yoga asana, on and off the mat, meditation and mindfulness, within the physical and energetic body.

You will refresh your knowledge on anatomy, functional approach to yoga, fascia through multiple experiential workshops and theory sessions.You will be introduced to Chinese Medicine, the 5 elements and develop an art of teaching to share yin yoga in a creative and efficient way.

This course has a strong thread of art of teaching

The art of teaching will prepare you to understand the responsibilities of being a Yin Yoga teacher, looking at key aspects within teaching methodology. Being an experiential, positive and inspirational learning environment, you will embody the physical, energetic, mental and emotional realms within the yin yoga practice from two points of view: the practitioner and the teacher.

Physical Body Approach

This part of the training visits the understanding of unique bio-individuality of human beings and translating this into, not only yin yoga but our day-to-day practices. You will be introduced to functional anatomy, the fascial system, tension and compression, muscle groups and target areas, asana (posture) breakdowns, the art of teaching and the art of propping. Art of propping is taught in a unique way but can be adapted to all other styles of yoga asana.

Energetic Body

In this part of the training you will break down the essence of the energetic body and how we can teach yin yoga form this approach. Breaking down Chinese Medicine theory, Yin Yang Theory and the 5 Chinese Elements you will gain new insight as to how we can benefit from yoga, how qi flows around the body, emotions that are relevant to the elements and how we can translate this into the 5 bodies approach for a holistic practice of teaching and moving meditation / asana. Furthermore, you will layer onto the depth of your philosophical education by looking at the Yin yoga from its original roots; the taoist point of view. Yin yoga brings you home to yourself, where you become whole

Morning Practice

This is the main practice of the day and is pure Yin yoga with mindfulness meditation and breath work interwoven through the practice. The first week will have a strong focus on the functional approach to yoga, targeting the physical body incorporating tension and compression, physical target areas and myofascial release through yin yoga asana and tennis ball trigger point release.

The second module will layer upon module one and have a strong focus on the energetic approach to yoga, targeting the energetic dimension of the body and incorporating all subjects from module 1 whilst adding the Chinses 5 elements into yin yoga asana.

Theory

This is the juicy bit of the course where we will have the unique opportunity to intricately break down the components of Yin yoga and reveal what it all means in its true form. In the first module we break down skeletal variation and dive deep into fascial studies. The second module is an introduction to Chinese Medicine, 5 Elements and Qi (energy, Prana, Ki, vital life force). Some of the theory classes will have supporting educational videos / documentaries or workshops to accompany the lecture. This session is to give you the scientific and theoretical foundation needed for a deeper understanding of Yin yoga. Please have a notebook and pen ready to go. It may be useful to bring a couple of notebooks and colored pens.

Art of Teaching and Asana Breakdown

These classes are where we will breakdown what it means to teach yin yoga. This is the ‘how to’ and the ‘why’. You could call this the ‘behind the scenes’ of yin yoga teaching. The art of teaching is a discussion-based class and participation from students is welcome and encouraged.

Asana breakdown is a practical class where we break down the Yin yoga asana (target area, cueing, propping). This requires small group work from students for experiential learning. This session is ultimately about you and to build your teaching expertise. Please have a notebook, pen and yoga mat at the ready.

Evening Practice

Evening practice incorporates a multitude of inner practices that range from yang styles of asana to meditation circle. The idea of this more inward and explorative time of day is that we close the daily session with introspection and connection to the self.
