The purpose of this training is to offer and guide your understanding of basic principles in anatomy, energetics, breathing, sequencing and language. These skills will be applied using the Yin Yoga method through lecture, practice, self study, and asana laboratories. As a result your engagement with the subtle body will deepen and a new and more refined relationship to your practice and teaching will unfold.
Yin Yoga is a method of practice where the actions of pulling and compression are applied to the connective tissues of the body through passive postures held for 3 – 5 minutes. By careful and intentional application of the methods, the organs and related systems find continuous balance.
