07 May The Collective – 100 Hour Yin Yoga Teacher Training

– July 3rd – 14th 2020


“In the quietude lies the power and out of the quietude arises the power” (Confucius)

This training is for experienced and aspiring yoga teachers and students alike who wish to enhance their knowledge of yin yoga – “the quiet practice” One will discover the anatomical and energetic theories of yin yoga for their own personal practice and/or with the intention to teach.  Turning our attention inwards, to connect to the true essence of ourselves.

When one practices yin yoga, we use long-held poses without muscle tension, which strengthens and flexes our connective, fascia and ligament tissues, mobilizing our joints, and soothing the nervous system. These exercises have a stress-reducing and regenerative effect.

 Yin yoga focuses on the connective, fascia and ligament tissues of the body around the hips, upper thighs, pelvic girdle and lower back – the main problem areas in this modern age. In the Yin Yoga and Anatomy Teacher Training program, we will study the history of yin yoga and apply yin theory to the practice. Learning anatomy, we will learn and develop skills in analyzing the bone structure, compression and tension of our students. In learning Yin asana, pranayama and meditation along with the subtle bodies and chakras, combined with philosophies of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), the meridians of the body –We will have the opportunity to learn – in a safe environment – to read a human being, to sense our own limitations and to test and recognize those of others.

One will gain a myriad of insights and enhanced self-awareness; being able to assess the needs and limitations of any individual student. This practice nourishes us from our core, with a blend of awareness, calmness and quietude. Upon completion of the program, the foundations for teaching yin yoga will be securely in place. In the fast-paced world of the 21st century, yin yoga offers the perfect balance for teachers and students alike
