Yin yoga teacher training with Douglas Johnson E-RYT 500, Y.A.C.E.P.
Douglas Johnson has been doing this training since 2013 and has trained many of the most successful Yin teachers in the Metro-Atlanta area. This training will be open to both yoga teachers and serious yoga practitioners who would like to deepen their practice & understanding of Yin Yoga and will count for at least 20 continuing education hours with Yoga Alliance.
Yin yoga has seen significant growth in popularity in recent years. Like any style of yoga the benefits of Yin are many: physical; energetic; emotional; mental; & spiritual. This training will focus primarily on some of the physical benefits of the practice and how to teach Yin to others in a safe and effective way.
In this workshop we will cover:
What Yin yoga is and how it differs from other styles of yoga;
Specific physical benefits of the Yin approach;
What the basic Yin yoga asanas are;
Modifications and variations of the postures;
‘Yang’ yoga counter-poses;
Effective approaches to teaching a Yin yoga class;
Teaching Yin yoga as a ‘spiritual’ practice;
A WORD FROM DOUGLAS
I often see and hear Yin yoga being confused with other ‘relaxed’ styles of yoga like Restorative or Gentle yoga, and not just by yoga students but by yoga teachers. While these are wonderful styles of practice with many benefits of their own, they do not offer the specific benefits that a proper ‘Yin’ approach to asana practice does. In this training, we will clear up any confusion so you will be able to teach this rewarding style safely, effectively and with confidence and ease.
