This training will teach you the theory behind yin practice, its benefits, how to teach a yin yoga class, and how to include elements of yin in a yang yoga class. Teaching yin as part of a yang yoga classes will allow students to go deeper into their practice. Students will receive a certificate of completion at the end of the program.
There are many styles of yoga. Some of them are very active (Yang) while other styles of yoga tend to be more passive (Yin). To create harmony in the body we need to create a balance between the yin and the yang. Whereas the focus of yang yoga practices is on muscle tissue, yin yoga practices focuses on connective tissue including fascia, ligament, tendon, and bone. We need both kinds of practice to maintain optimal health and as we age we need more yin practices.
This certification program is open to everyone; you do not need to be a yoga instructor to attend the program. It is helpful to yoga instructors, personal trainers, any type of group fitness instructors, and students who want to create a home yin practice for themselves.
Please feel free to arrive 10-20 minutes early to give yourself enough time to park and settle in. If this is your first time visiting the Ashram, please inform your teacher upon arrival so they can help you get oriented to the space.
Our studio has yoga mats, blocks, blankets, and chairs for your convenience. We strongly encourage you to bring any additional support that you might need for any added support, such as bolsters and cushions.
We will share our traditional Langar meal with students on Sunday, and we invite you to either bring your own lunch on Saturday or join the group in a healthy vegan meal ordered from our local vegan restaurant, Nirvana.
