Byron Yoga Centre’s 50 and 25 hour Modular Trainings are designed to be stand alone specialty courses as well as being applicable to part of your 200, 300 or 800 hour certificates. They fit particularly well as part of a Level 2 300 hour course. You could choose to do the Byron Yoga Centre Level 2 and also participate, before or after, in one or several of the Modular Trainings to gain some hours required for certification. These modular course hours can also be used for the ongoing professional development required each year by Yoga Alliance and other professional bodies. Or you could just do one because you want to learn more!
Yin yoga has been growing in popularity as people increasingly seek balance in a fast-paced world. The chance to sink into stillness, to connect to your centre and to relax into rest is a potent practice.
Many people see Yin Yoga as a complement to a vinyasa practice, the yin to the yang, but it is also an entire practice in itself. This training will equip you, as a teacher and as a practitioner, to add elements of Yin to the cool down of your class or to teach complete sessions of Yin Yoga.
Many people confuse Yin and Restorative Yoga, for a detailed explanation see here
Yin Yoga Teacher Training Course Overview
This course provides a solid foundation of the theory and methodology of Yin Yoga. You will learn how Yin Yoga poses works along the body’s meridians and about the effects on the bio-mechanics of the body including how the poses work on the fascia and connective tissue. You will also explore experientially how Yin Yoga works on deep levels to still the mind and balance the emotions, even releasing long held emotions on a cellular level.
You will be guided through the teaching method and sequencing of 20 key poses in Yin Yoga, and variations on these poses. Participants will have the opportunity for practical teaching experience and encouraged to develop their competent and confidence in sharing Yin Yoga with others.
In the residential course the practical teaching sessions will be undertaken in two groups so you will have the option of some free time when you are not in that day’s teaching group. You can choose to relax by the pool, go to the beach, explore the town – or join the Yin class. Then the evening sessions will offer you time to relax and reconnect to yourself through guided meditation, pranayama and Yoga Nidra.
