Workshop

Yin Yoga Teacher Training Module 1

Taoism, Anatomy & Sequencing

Aug 13 - Aug 18 2017 Rhinebeck, NY
In this 5-day teacher training with Biff Mithoefer, we explore the basic principles of Yin Yoga learn how it affects our physical, energetic, and emotional bodies.

Yin Yoga uses long-held postures that support us in accessing the deeper, more yin parts of ourselves.

In this teacher training, we explore the ways Yin Yoga, with its ancient yogic roots, can affect our physical, energetic, and emotional bodies. By understanding the basic principles of Yin Yoga, we learn how to lead a yin class and incorporate yin postures and philosophy into any yoga teaching or practice.

Guided by Biff Mithoefer, author of The Yin Yoga Kit, we:

  • Explore the Yin Yoga practice of nonstriving and how it influences our lives and teachings
  • Learn about the movement of qi (or prana) in the body and how it can be affected by Yin Yoga practice
  • Develop our understanding of the postures and sequencing of a Yin Yoga class
  • Delve into the teachings of Taoist philosophy
  • Gain a true understanding of what it means to hold a safe, sacred space for a Yin Yoga practice

This Yin Yoga Teacher Training is suitable for yoga teachers and practitioners at all levels of experience.
