YIN YOGA: An Immersion for Teachers and Students
March 26, April 2 and 23
Until March 1 –
$300 for all three sessions
$125 for a single session
$150 for a single sessionRegistration closes on March 15th.
Yin yoga focuses on longer held, more passive floor poses that lengthen and stimulate the connective tissues of the body. Unlike a power/vinyasa yoga (yang) practice, yin yoga is a slower pace where poses are held for 3-5 minutes. This practice also helps to cultivate inner calm. By staying in the pose longer you will train your mind and body to become still and endure uncomfortableness, both mentally and physically, with grace. Breath is used to help stay connected to the present moment.
This training is for those who would like to dive deeper into the practice. It is for current yoga teachers who would like to learn the fundamental science and philosophy behind yin yoga. As well as for students interested in a more thorough understanding of the practice.
The training is broken down into three 3-hour sessions. You can attend all three or sign up for specific dates. Teachers are eligible for continuing education credits required for Yoga Alliance renewal. You will receive 10 contact hours when you attend all three sessions and lead a yin yoga community class. Class will be scheduled on an individual basis after the training sessions are completed. You will receive a certificate of completion.
