Shanti Atma Spain Yoga Teacher Training Program

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.

You will get back to the nature of Yin and Yang yoga and get deep into the yogic philosophy of Patanjali’s eight limbs and their connection to Yin yoga. Also, the Buddhist philosophy and meditation will be an important part of the training. The meditation part will also include Qi Gong practices.

You will breakdown of Yin asana and the art of propping, to increase and decrease stress, to make Yin yoga accessible for all body types. This way you will discover your body and mind.
