This five-day immersion into Yin yoga creates space for exploration and study. The reasons and the results of practising this form will be explained. There will be detailed examination of poses, examples of sequencing and plenty of time to evaluate our own experience. Participants will learn about contraindications and modifications.
This is an opportunity for practitioners to become familiar with the Yin yoga practice. Three sessions (three hours each) will be led by external teachers - on anatomy, on meridians and on meditation.
By the end of the course, participants will have a deeper understanding of this practice and have been thoroughly introduced to Yin yoga. Qualified yoga teachers will be equipped to begin teaching Yin yoga. Participants will get a course manual and other handouts. Numbers on the course are limited to twelve and this small group experience can be a significant factor in encouraging the process of learning. Training hours (30 in total) are eligible for Yoga Alliance continuing education (YACEP).
