Yin Teacher Training

40hr Yin Teacher Training

Yin Yoga’s perspective is “stressing” the joints in a good way improving long term health.

While stressing anything seems odd, the rule with connective tissue is stressing will ultimately strengthen. The connective tissue within and surrounding joints needs to be exercised in a slow-steady load or Yin Yoga. The body responds by promoting flexibility in areas often perceived as nonmalleable, especially around the hips and lower back. 

During your training you’ll gain a deeper understanding of muscles, joints, compression, tension and how the body naturally protects you while in different shapes or forms.

The course also offers the pathway of meridians into Chinese medicine. The ida and pingala nadis are spoken of in yoga history activating the flow of Qi (Chi) energy.
