Yin Yoga and Anatomy COURSE DETAILS
This intensive level III 50-hour training is a certified stand-alone teacher training course and is also the third of four modules that make up Yin Therapy’s 200hour Yoga Alliance accredited Yin Yoga & Anatomy Teacher Training.
In this teacher training we focus anatomically on the theory and practice of the upper body including shoulder, shoulder girdle, shoulder/neck region, wrists. We analyse and test common yoga asanas such as down dog, chaturanga, wheel, shoulder & head stand. Through this process we discover the importance of understanding each and everyone’s individual upper body bone structure and it’s impact on yoga asanas. In doing so, as in level II – we then find logical variations, practice passive assists, as well as explore creative and undogmatic approaches to our own yoga practice and that of our students.
This level III training takes a turn as we shift the focus and awareness to the energetic benefits of Yin Yoga. We lay down the theoretical foundation of understanding of how energy works, beginning with the chakra & meridian system and energy bodies. In practice we will begin to explore the different ways of activating and moving energy throughout the body by meditating on chakras using mantras, singing bija mantras (vibration), practicing asana class with the focus on energy. We not only connect the dots between the physical and energetic body, we build a bridge between modern western medicine and ancient eastern medicine.
We will be studying and discussing one of the most important texts on Yoga –Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras. Students must have completed our Yin Therapy’s Level I & II Yin Yoga and Anatomy Teacher Training to participate in this level III training. On successful completion of this training, the hours can be counted either towards Yin Therapy’s Yoga Alliance internationally recognised 200hr Yin Yoga & Anatomy Teacher Training certificate or continuing education hours with Yoga Alliance (AYA).
Students must have completed our Yin Therapy’s Level I and 2 Yin Yoga and Anatomy Teacher Trainings to be able to participate in this Yin Yoga and Anatomy Teacher Training II.
