Yin Yoga 100 Hour Teacher Training Course YACEP

Anatomy, Fascia, Function and Qi

Let’s find some beautiful place to get lost

WHAT IS YIN YOGA?

Yin Yoga is a powerful style of yoga that physically unravels the body’s matrix of tension, mentally concentrates the mind, emotionally relaxes the body and energetically stimulates the flow of qi. Yin yoga holds the key to unlocking the full potential of a holistic and comprehensive yoga practice, both on and off the mat.

If you are stuck in your teaching, want to refresh your approach to yoga, ignite your body-mind consciousness or enhance your self- practice or teaching with a complementing style of yoga then this course is for you.

You will come away with an abundance of confidence to guide your own practice focusing on physical and energetic target areas as well as being prepared to teach this practice to others if you wish.

You will explore how Yin Yoga is the gentle application of tension and compression to the body which induces a healthy phase change in the tissue. Through the practice of longer, static holds, using floor based asana for muscle relaxation and myofascial release, you will bridge the body and mind seamlessly together, 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.

This course offers you to slow down the body and the mind while diving deeper into the connection of yoga asana and meditation, physical and energetic body, while refreshing your knowledge on anatomy, fascia and Chinese Medicine. Being an experiential learning environment, you will embody the physical, energetic, mental and emotional realms within the yin yoga practice.
