This teacher training will take you deep into the vital practice of Yin yoga. Yin yoga is a transformative practice for the body and mind. The passive, long held but gentle postures allow releasing of long held tightness in the deep tissues of the body while recharging the energetic systems. The Yin practice invites the the mind inward into a contemplative meditative state, encourages the balance of effort and ease without strain, and promotes deep connection to the present moment. This experience will provide you with a solid foundation to teach Yin yoga, how to include Yin yoga in a more active class or simply to take your own practice to a much deeper level.
