YIN YOGA with
October 20 – 25, 2020
YIN - is the feminine force in the universe that defines all that is cool, dark, slow, smooth and passive. It is an attitude of reflection, reception and relaxed observation. The yin way is gentle and a surprisingly powerful method to invoke change in both body and mind.
A unique way of practising Hatha yoga, seeks to embrace only the sweet or relaxed side of the posture. Instead of recruiting muscles to stabilize a posture the asanas are performed mostly on the ground and are supported by props like bolsters, blankets, blocks and straps. Relying on the props to ‘hold’ the shape of the posture the student can fully relax their body — removing all physical effort. By releasing in this way the body ‘hangs’ in its container (the fascial net) and the tension is transferred to the connective tissue (fascia) rather than the usual stretch felt through the muscles.
Working with connective tissue allows the student to access their emotional warehouse so they can let go of unhealthy mental and emotional patterns. Yin yogis are learning to integrate life’s challenges in a healthy and constructive way.
The facial network defines our physical shape as well as playing a large role in our emotional and mental landscape. By stimulating particular areas in the fascial net we are able to manipulate how we are feeling and what we are thinking. By applying the wisdom of Traditional Chinese Medicine's meridian system and the knowledge of the Indian Chakra paradigm to the myofascial trains, we can synthesize Eastern and Western approaches to healing.
What is the course about??
This YTT is about the psychosomatic relationship — how your mind alters your physiology and how the state your physical body influences how you think and feel.
This course is about YOU
During this six day intensive you will learn a lot about yourself. Homework will be designed around your personal experiences. Your insights will become a strong foundation for you to begin the process of helping others. Expect to grow!
This course is about integrating East and West
This Yin YTT is a comparative study of three seemingly different approaches to health and well being — the Chinese Meridian system, the Chakra system of India and the Myofascial Trains of the West. There is a considerable amount of overlap found in these approaches. All three paradigms offer an explanation as to how the mind and body influence each other. As a yin practitioner and teacher you will be able to seamlessly blend together the knowledge of the East and the West in a way that will translate to comprehensive and effective sequences. You will be able to be more prescriptive in your teaching, providing your students and clients with real solutions to common ailments.
