Yin yoga is the gentle application of tension and compression to the body which induces a healthy phase change in the tissue. The practice is characterised by long, static holds, using floor based asana for muscle relaxation and myofascial release, allowing for a meditative focus. Yin Yoga focuses on strengthening the inter-connectivity of the physical, mental, emotional and energetic dimensions of the body and its systems.
Yin Yoga explores the different approaches to Yin, taking a deeper look into the 4 dimensions of the body. Let’s find the right approach to Yin yoga for you, your mind, your body and your student.
AT THE END OF THE COURSE YOU WILL BE ABLE TO:
• Follow a path in yin yoga
• Incorporate techniques into and advance teaching and self practice
• Broaden your teaching expertise with knowledge from a yin perspective
• Complement teaching and practices with yogic philosophy
• Offer your students a new style of yoga with a wide range of approaches which complements and balances other practices
• Facilitate a practice that leans towards holistic health and wellness
• Have a strong foundation of the art of teaching
PHILOSOPHY & PRANAYAMA:
You will learn about yogic, hindu and Buddhist philosophies in an interactive manner. You will be able to explore what resonates the most with you and carry forward that in your own practice as well as teaching, adding depth to your classes.
Through this course you will find tools to bring philosophy in your classes and workshops. I will guide you around creating a well balanced “YOGA” class that is much more than just asana. We will also be looking into theory and practice of pranayama techniques to compliment your practice or teaching.
Together we will explore mind, body, breath and soul.
