Program

Certification

With successful completion of the training you will receive a Yoga Alliance Certificate from The Body-Mind-Soul Centre (RYS – registered school with Yoga Alliance) and a Yin Yoga Therapy Training Diploma as a component of Alexandra Denkinger M.D.(ACU) physical therapy practice, licensed and registered as Doctor of Medicine in Acupuncture M.D.(ACU).

Program

When you awaken and align your body’s underlying energy, you activate your innate process of healing and transformation. You will demystify how energy affects everything you do and feel—and show you how to work with your body and your mind. You will learn about acupressure points applied in the poses and sequencing according to physical or emotional issues.

The alternative medicine aspect of Daoism offer the opportunity to deep healing and profound transformation. You will learn everything you need to know for your Yin yoga certification and additionally get to know simple principles, tools, and practices that balance your subtle body—which is how physical, emotional and spiritual healing begins—so you can build vitality, unravel energetic blockages, and boost your immunity.

The five Daoist Elements give you resources of inspiration for your practice, your teaching, and your Yin yoga certification. Mindfulness will be a subject in focus and we will guide you on how to integrate mindfulness principles to transform a Yin yoga class into a meditation practice and a healing session.

By the end of this Yin yoga certification course, you will not only receive your Yin yoga certification but you will feel stronger, more balanced, healthier, and better able to thrive and flow in the life you are meant to live. In this Yin yoga certification program, you will find the opportunity to practice teaching yourself and develop your own style in the art of teaching Yin. Focus is to imply sequences according to the Daoist Elements, understanding their energetic value and the subtle art of creating the ideal environment for a transformational experience of body, mind and soul to take place.

Location

Fuerteventura, known as the “Europen Caribbean”, has been declared a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO. This island is located less than a hundred kilometres from the African coast, features a unique desert landscape and has as its hallmark more than 150 kilometres of white sand beaches and turquoise waters.

As Miguel de Unamuno said, it is a piece of Sahara launched in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. Its sea breeze, loaded with negative ions, makes one completely relax as soon as you set foot on this island, you easily feel as if you are on another planet. You find virgin and hidden white-water beaches, big waves or calm sea beaches as well as sandy lakes and charming fishing villages.
