Yin Yoga and Anatomy COURSE DETAILS
This intensive level I 50-hour training is a certified stand-alone teacher training course and is also the foundation stone and first of four modules that make up Yin Therapy’s 200hour Yoga Alliance recognised Yin Yoga & Anatomy Teacher Training.
Yin Yoga is “the other half” of yoga. It is the complementary practice to all yang forms of exercise e.g. yang styles of yoga, dance or sport. As our lives become increasingly more fast-paced and stressful, the popularity in Yin Yoga has increased dramatically in Europe, America and also Australasia due to the urgent need for balance on a physical, mental and emotional level.
Yin Yoga stimulates the fascia – the connective tissue, ligaments, tendons, joints resulting in a deeply relaxing practice while creating “space” in the body, de-stressing the mind and re-energising the soul.
The backbone of Yin Yoga and thus this training is yoga anatomy from a functional perspective. The mystery will be solved why you or your students may be having difficulty doing certain poses. Through a series of practical tests, you will be equipped with the knowledge and skills to confidentially teach Yin Yoga with a deep understanding for anatomical variation which will benefit one’s own practice as well as the teaching of not only Yin Yoga, but all forms of yoga, dance, sport, massage and bodywork.
This intensive 50-hour Teacher Training is the foundation stone and first module of a 200 hour Yin Therapy Yin Yoga & Anatomy Teacher Training.
This 50-hour intensive programme was created for certified and aspiring yoga teachers as well as dedicated yoga students with a minimum of 2 years yoga experience who simply wish to delve more into the world of yin yoga for their own practice.
The cost for this 50 Hour intensive is $1200* (NZ Dollars) or Earlybird Price $1050* (NZ Dollars) if paid in full by 30th November 2016.

"To observe the poses from the perspective of functionality is something quite special. Until now, I never knew what I should be looking at. Despite all the knowledge you shared with us over the week, the energy in the room stays light. Your manner and cheery nature together with your humorous presenting style kept the atmosphere relaxed, despite the amount of content we learned. A huge heartfelt thanks, it was so enjoyable." (Sandra A.)
"There are no rules! Blew my mind - loved it! It totally makes sense and feels very liberating. It has opened my mind and heart. I love Markus and Karin, their background, their trainings, their knowledge, their hearts and desire to share. I love that this is being shared - breaks down barriers within the yoga community. It's very beautiful and it makes sense. I feel inspired and want to learn more from them both." (Kristina A. - Yoga Teacher and Studio Owner in Napier, NZ)
