This eight-day training will enable participants to teach Yin yoga. This is a wonderful way to deepen and reflect on Yin yoga practice and teaching. All attendees will have already completed a training in Yin yoga. Prior to the course, each participant has to complete an essay of 1000-2000 words.
Participants will learn the skills and the tools of teaching this practice. Sequencing and theming of classes will be covered in detail. During the course, there will be homework. Each person will at the end of the course teach a 30 minute class to the other participants and there will be feedback given. There will be sessions on meditation practice and teaching; a thorough understanding of anatomy and Yin yoga; a session on energy channels (meridians) and Traditional Chinese Medicine and how this relates to Yin yoga.
The aim of this course is to give participants the abilities, the confidence and the knowledge to teach Yin yoga. Participants will get a course manual and other handouts. After the course, each participant is eligible for a one hour interview. 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 (60 in total) are eligible for Yoga Alliance continuing education (YACEP).
