Yin yoga foundations

While practicing Yin yoga on its own offers immense benefits, incorporating additional holistic healing methods can elevate the experience into a comprehensive healing journey.

To establish a strong foundation for both personal practice and teaching, you will be guided through the principles and components of Yin yoga, drawing from the original teachings of Paul Grilley, Sarah Powers, and Bernie Clark. This includes understanding individual skeletal structures, achieving functional alignment, and effectively engaging with ‘Yin tissue’ to not only stretch but also strengthen them.

You’ll delve into the physical benefits of poses, safe techniques for guiding students in and out of postures, and intelligent sequencing principles tailored to anatomical needs and energetic considerations.

You will be introduced to the ancient wisdom of the Taoist philosophy, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) Meridians, and the flow of Chi within the body. You’ll gain understanding of major Meridians and Acupressure Points, and learn to seamlessly integrate them into your Yin yoga practice.

Additionally, you’ll explore the activation of acupressure points using thoughtfully selected essential oils with the matching corresponding qualities, to enhance both physical and emotional well-being.

Transforming a Yin yoga class into a healing experience requires both knowledge and practice. Therefore, you’ll have the opportunity to refine your teaching skills with a hands-on practice of how to create a trauma-aware, supportive environment for both energetic and physical healing to unfold.

Your Plant-Medicine Expert guiding those course:

This training is led by Sam Shine, the founder of Ygeia – an expert in plant medicine.

Sam Shine comes from a long line of well-respected hakims, revered for their healing powers and service to royal families. His mission is to reintegrate indigenous plant wisdom into modern life, viewing plant medicine as a birthright and an ancient practice intrinsic to human existence.

Following his heritage and guided by intuition, Sam embarked on the path of natural healing and founded Ygeia in 2007 on a mission to provide high-quality plant medicine to humankind.

Nestled in the sacred mountains of Dharamshala on the foothills of the Himalayas, he finds solace in foraging wild mushrooms and medicinal plants, cherishing moments of stillness. He considers it a profound blessing to be a conduit for ancestral wisdom through Ygeia.

Ygeia’s research scientists, all volunteers or doctors from Workaway, diligently connect plant medicinal research to authentic journals. Over time, Ygeia has evolved into a global entity, offering premium herbal remedies across more than 10 countries.

In Sam’s own words: “In today’s fast-paced, technological world, using herbs as medicine is a radical way to personal empowerment and good health. Working with plants, growing plants, and processing them for our health encourages us to become the guardians of the planet and feel more in touch with Mother Earth. Plants are sentient, intelligent, and magical. By working with plants, we can expect deeper, more lasting healing and we come to recognize that the natural world is full of magic! Working with the Sun and the Moon whilst in a state of reciprocity with the plants.

I want to empower people to become self-reliant, self-responsible, and self-sufficient in caring for their health and the health of their families. There is also great encouragement to forge a deeper connection with the Sacredness of Nature and our Plant Relations.”
