Yin Yoga

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

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.
