Interview on Neuroplasticity
Neuroplasticity doesn’t often get much attention in the Yoga or Yin Yoga space, yet it is a part of the missing link, heavily connected to what’s happening in the brain when we practice meditation and mindfulness. By understanding the plasticity of your brain, and how the way in which you teach affects the brains of your studets, you can become a more conscious and responsible Yin Yoga teacher by helping your students access the mental landscape in a safe and nourishing way.
Over the course of the training you will gain foundational, fundamental and uniquely put together knowledge and experience in:
Neuroplasticity: You will explore how the brain is wired and how patterns, beliefs and behaviour emerge. We will break down the components of how we can use Yin Yoga to harness the conscious power of neuroplasticity.
Yin Yoga: You will be walked through how we can use Yin Yoga as a positive tool to re-wire our brain, both in theory of science and teaching methodology, as well as your experience of application to practice. This will not only highlight the power of our brain, linking directly into the theory of mindfulness, but will give you a fundamental understanding of the brains power and capabilities.
Teaching Responsibly: You will gain practical experience in holding space for others mentally, emotionally and energetically but also keeping yourself and the student’s safe. Exploring communication, propping, sequencing and other components will make a confident and powerful teacher.
Morning Nurturing Practice:
This is the main practice of the day and focuses on Yin Yoga from the mental landscape. We will dive into the depths of what it means to fully present in the mind, focusing on subconscious patterns and how one can break free from what holds us back. Using the practice so that we can develop a positive relationship with our pyschology means that our job of curating a safe space physically, emotionally and mentally is most important, creating the container in which you can surrender and know you are held.
This is the juicy bit of the course where we will intricately break down the components of Yin Yoga in relation to the mind and mental landscape. Breaking down the neurplasticity and linking it to the functioning of meditation and mindfulness will give you a confident and new angle of understanding when teaching Yin Yoga responsibly. These classes specifically evaluate, question, discuss and develop the topics which make up the backbone of teaching safely from the mental dimension. Some of the theory classes will have supporting educational videos and workshops to accompany the lecture. This session is to give you the scientific and theoretical foundation needed for a deeper understanding of experiential Yin Yoga and how it connects to mind.
Art of Teaching: These classes are where breakdown what it means to teach Yin Yoga. This is the ‘how to’ and the ‘why’. The art of teaching is a discussion-based class and participation from students is welcome and encouraged. When it comes to teaching from the mental space we must dive deeper than simple cueing and sequencing. This is your chance to understand how to support your students through their transition into the mental landscape in a safe and nourishing way. This is the most important part of being a Yin Yoga teacher.
Asana breakdown is a practical class where we break down the Yin yoga asana (target area, cueing, propping). This requires small group work from students for experiential learning. This session is ultimately about you and to build your teaching expertise. This allows you to learn how to keep the physical body safe while nurturing the gateway to the mind.
Empowering Evening Practice: Evening practice incorporates a multitude of inner practices that range from yang styles of yoga and movement, to a meditation circle and spiritual practices.

You will be walked through how we can use Yin Yoga as a positive tool to re-wire our brain and come back into mental balance.
This not only showcases the power of our brain, linking directly to meditation and mindfulness, but gives a fundamental experience of how to harness the concious power of neuroplasticity in all Yoga teaching.
**This course has a strong thread of art of teaching**
The art of teaching will prepare you to understand the responsibilities of being a Yin Yoga teacher, looking at key aspects within teaching methodology. Specific techniques shall be shared pertaining to meditation and mindfulness based on the concept of neuroplasticity. This is where your teaching skill will develop.
Being an experiential, positive and inspirational learning environment, you will embody the physical, energetic, mental and emotional realms within the yin yoga practice from two points of view: the practitioner and the teacher.
Small Groups = Time With Trainers
We believe that no Yoga course is effective without giving time for integration, questions, answers and support that are personal to you.
Working with students on a one on one basis is what puts this course apart from others. Every student receives time to ask questions to trainers on how to confidently move forward with their Yin Yoga teaching path.
When we are unveiling the power of the mind, we must have space to consistenly ask questions. We acnkowledge that and facilitate that.
