This year I have changed the format slightly of this course to be able to spend more time with my little baby. Normally done over 6 days, I have extended this course over 8 days with shorter hours each day.
Course hours equal 48 hours face to face time. The additional 2 hours will be made up with pre-course practices and homework.
The exact hours each day will depend on the studio availability which has not been confirmed yet. If you know you can make yourself available for full days of teacher training, you can sign up now. If your time is limited, you can wait until the venue has confirmed the availability with me, however you risk missing out on a spot as these trainings always sell out.
Please note full attendance is required to receive your completion certificate. If you do not attend all sessions, you will receive a certificate only for the hours you completed, which will not be recognised by Yoga Alliance.
Covid-19: At the current time, I am expecting all of the course content to be taught in person but should the government’s virus-related regulations change, I will reserve the right to teach some of the modules live on Zoom.
Expect deep, juicy yin yoga classes and comprehensive practical instruction each day in an intimate environment.
Topics covered during the course include:
- The key principles of yin yoga
- Yin asana theory
- Effective use of props (e.g., blankets, bolsters, straps) and practicing yin yoga at the wall
- Teaching styles, class sequencing and theming, including take-home sequences used in the training
- Introduction to human anatomy from a yin perspective
- Introduction to Chinese Medicine meridian theory of the 12 main meridians including qi (chi, energy) and yin/yang
- The five elements, linking yin to chakra energy systems, myofascial trains an their relationship to yin yoga
- Meridian massage, some key acupuncture/pressure points and how to stimulate them
- Meditation daily practice
- Mantra chanting
- Pranayama (breath control) during the yin practice
- Yin yoga and pregnant women
This training is suited to yoga teachers who have completed any 200-hour yoga teacher training and who wish to begin teaching yin yoga. Regular practitioners of yin yoga who wish to deepen their practice and knowledge of yin yoga are also welcome.
You will receive a certificate at the end of the course for 50 hours of yin yoga teacher training. This program is recognised by YACEP (Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Provider) and counts towards Yoga Alliance’s RYT continuing education requirements.
