ABOUT OUR YIN YOGA TEACHER TRAINING COURSE

In the fast pace of our times and as everything becomes increasingly faster, finding stillness and balance within becomes an even harder task. A line from Patanjali's Yoga Sutras, "yogas chitta vritti nirodhah" refers to stilling the mind in order to experience Ultimate Reality and move toward Self-realization. During yin Yoga – the quiet practice – we bring stillness, while slowing down to point our attention and intention inwards to connect to the purest essence of our being. Yin yoga has always been around, although it is relatively new to western society, we know from ancient yogic texts that seated postures were performed for thousands and thousands of years in India as part of a practice to calm the mind and prepare the body for meditation. Yin yoga, also referred to as “Daoist” yoga, consists of asana sequences that work deeply into the body’s tissues. The poses are often held for much longer than in other hatha yoga traditions, with the intention to access deeper layers of the body and connective tissues as well as combining the whole - going into our body following the breath process - with a more meditative approach and state of mind. Within this training you will be guided to walk your own path as a yin yoga teacher in order to teach your students the beauty and freedom within of this tradition. As a student you will have the opportunity to learn more and go deeper in your own practice. As a teacher you will develop your skills on offering properly sequenced classes that will strengthen, stretch and stimulate to encourage more flexibility and freedom of movement while simultaneously releasing deep tension of the body and relaxing the nervous system of the participants. Moreover you will learn to promote and  create a safe practice environment and a deep level of calmness, focus and equanimity within your classes, having all the proper tools and knowledge required. In the 21st century's stressful times yin yoga offers the perfect balance for teachers and students alike.

The course is taught by Thina Chat, experienced  E-500RYT  registered yoga teacher and YACEP® continuing education provider.
