This year I have changed the format slightly of this course and made it a hybrid training, a mix of online and face-to-face.
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: For face-to-face sessions, sanitary measures must be adhered to.
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 with a strong focus on fascia
- 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 and 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 pregnancy
- Teaching practice
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.
