Shanti Atma Yoga invites you for a diverse training program in Yin yoga and myofascial release. The course combines asana practice with meditation, anatomy, and fascia studies and has a strong thread of the art of teaching Yin yoga and other subjects, and takes a deeper look into the energetic workings of the body. You will discover different types of Yin Yang practices and shift your focus, feeling how the energy of your mind and body become connected. You will learn to think and feel from a Yin perspective and truly discover your mind, body, and soul. This course is a YACEP (Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Program) which means it accounts towards extra training hours per year needed to keep YA designations for registered teachers.
During your training, you will stay in Can Jou, a beautiful accommodation with a spectacular view over the Pyrenees where you can enjoy the entire peace of mind you need to reconnect with nature. You will have the possibility to choose from a private room, a twin shared room, and a shared room for three people.
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 characterized by long, static holds, using floor based asana, for muscle relaxation and myofascial release, allowing for a meditative focus. Yin yoga focuses on Daoist principles of the energetic network, embedded within the body, using the energy pathways to harmonize the body.
At the end of the course, you will be able to follow a path in Yin yoga, incorporate techniques learned into your teaching and self-practice, broaden your teaching expertise with new knowledge from a Yin yoga perspective, and in the end being able to offer your students a new style of yoga, which complements and balances other practices.
You will learn Yin and Yang yoga practices, Yin asanas and their target areas, but also the principles and history of Yin yoga, and its function over form approach. You will learn how to teach the methodology of Yin yoga, how to sequence a Yin yoga class, focusing on the energetic body through meridian channels, the physical body through myofascial release, and the mental body through a variety of techniques of meditation and pranayama.
You will learn about muscle mandalas, with physical and energetic target areas and about fascia's connective tissue and the body’s living energy web. You will hear about the Meridian theory, Qi theory, Chinese medicine, and the five elements.
