30 Hour Yin Yoga Immersion
Dates: January 18/19, February 22/23, March 21/22
Are you ready to deepen your yin yoga practice or balance your vinyasa practice? Curious about yin yoga and how it really works? Wonder why you feel so amazing after class, but struggle in certain poses? The 30 hour Immersion is packed with practices, philosophy, energetics, anatomy, and meditation to help you cultivate your yin energy (and understand what that even means!). We go deep into Taoist Philosophy and how our culture is so predominantly yang. We explore how to modify poses for your own body, how to be with yourself in quiet, and how to take these teachings off your mat and into your life. The Immersion is open to anyone, but having taken at least a few public yin yoga classes before you enroll is a good idea. Beginners, intermediate, and advanced students of yin yoga are most welcome, as are people who think they're not flexible. Everyone who enrolls adds an important perspective to our discussions, no matter their body type, race, gender, age, or physical ability!
Here's what's included in the 30 hour Immersion:
Detailed Instructions, Discussion and Variations for 25 Yin Yoga Postures
What is Yin Energy? What is Yin Yoga?
How to Practice: The 10 Guiding Principles & The Five Essentials
How to Setup Your Home Sanctuary
Organs of Emotion, The Meridians & Fascia
Right Brain vs. Left Brain and Building the Yin Body
Kuan Yin Puja
Six 30-minute Guided Somatic Meditations
Six 90-minute Guided Yin Yoga Practices

Dedicated Time for Question and Answer
70 Hour Yin Teachers Section
Dates: April 4/5, April 25/26, May 16/17
Building upon the practice, theory, energetics, and anatomy that we covered in the Immersion, we'll now dive into the practice with new eyes: How to share what we've learned. The emphasis is on teaching from a place of experience, authenticity, and clarity. This is a unique and powerful training because it involves looking at yourself, your habits, your fears, your voice, your ego, etc, as equally important to your teaching as the details of each posture or your knowledge about the philosophy of Yin Yoga. It's my belief that your energy and your home practice have a dramatic effect on the experience of your students.
This course includes 35 hours of homework to be completed at your own pace during the 2 months of the training. You are also given the option to extend your homework deadline to December 31, 2020 if needed. You will receive your 100 hour Yin Yoga Teacher Training Certificate upon completion of the in-person classes and the homework requirements. Click here to see the homework requirements.
