Guiding the Quiet Revolution: Yin Yoga Training and Immersion
Bel Air, MD
All-levels workshop; Both students & yoga teachers are welcome. Ideal for students looking to explore & grow their practice & for instructors to expand their skill set & knowledge base. *12 CE hours for YA members*
Yin Yoga is the art of insightful relaxation, personal acceptance and contemplative awareness. Those who have experienced it are rejuvenated and transformed. The practice consists of long relaxed holds with an emphasis on the connective tissue and joints of the hips, pelvis and lower spine. It allows students to focus deep within their system.
In addition to four Yin practices, we will examine the following:
- Yin Yoga and Daoist philosophy
- Techniques to enhance meditation practice
- Anatomical considerations in poses
- Prop and non-prop modifications
- The role of language to enhance the Yin experience
- Techniques on incorporating Yin into a general class
The training includes a manual for continued reference. Whether a student or a teacher, learn to appreciate the addition of Yin Yoga either into a class or your own practice. Often yoga’s physical practice is marketed as “more, hotter, faster”, but more and more students are getting wise to this unattainable acceleration and realize the need for additional depth.
Yin Yoga’s philosophy of stillness and independence counters this frenzied rush. Empower yourself and your students!
