2016 Yin Yoga Teacher Training with Lisa Jang
THE YOGA COMPANY, SAN RAMON LOCATION ONLY.
YIN YOGA (MODULE 1) – THE FOUNDATIONS (20 Hours) – $395 by August 1st, $425 after
Dates: September 17, 18, 24, 25
Saturdays 12 – 5pm and Sundays 1 – 6:15pm
Yin Yoga is based on floor postures practiced with an empathetic and yielding approach. The method is intended to reach parts of the body that would otherwise not be involved in the more yang-like yoga (such as Ashtanga, Vinyasa, Power) and is therefore a complementary tool, which also prepares you for meditation. Yin Yoga provides an opportunity to reach deeper parts of ourselves, which in everyday life is not given so much space.
During this training you will learn how to teach Yin Yoga from a functional approach rather than an aesthetic or performance-related approach to yoga, with the aim of creating a meaningful experience for yourself and your students, to explore a personal yoga. You will study Yin Yoga with an approach to promote awareness of what is happening in the whole person through the body. The training is aimed at those who want a deeper understanding of Yin Yoga.
While there are no pre-requisites for this course, it is recommended that you have practiced yoga for a minimum of a year. This course is for those who want to deepen their own practice and understanding of themselves and for those who want to teach Yin Yoga (with or without the 200 RYT certification).
