This community of Yin Yoga lovers will join together on the Caribbean coast in Quinana Room, Mexico, to learn, discover, experience and explore the magical realm of Yin yoga in the beautiful, private, beachfront villa with swimming pool and lots of space outside for barefoot walking, sunshine sharing, and love.
This is a unique training because there is an alumni area for students only who will have access to post course follow up video training support and a follow up program which is either a six month or a one year one-on-one personal coaching program. This means that students work under Shanti Atma Yoga's mentorship in kick-starting their yoga retreat business or yoga teacher training career. You will be able to see incredible results after your training.
Yin Yoga is the gentle application of tension and compression to the body which induces a healthy phase change in the tissue. The practice is characterised by long, static holds, using floor based asana for muscle relaxation and myofascial release, allowing for a meditative focus. Yin yoga focuses on strengthening the inter-connectivity of the physical, mental, emotional and energetic dimensions of the body and its systems. Learn the functional movement of fascia!
The course is split into two modules with a day in between to rest, digest, snooze and stretch. Both modules will take you through the functional and energetic approach to yoga, breaking them down individually and then layering them upon another to make your understanding of Yin yoga and art of teaching brighter and bolder and better than the rest.
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.
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, five elements and qi (energy, prana, ki, and 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.
These classes are where we will break down 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.
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.
