Yin yoga is a nourishing practice that complements perfectly Yang practices such as Vinyasa and Ashtanga Yoga.
During this course you will learn about Paul Grilley, the father of Yin yoga, and how this practice came into existence, and its tenets: Functional Anatomy, Chinese Meridian theory, Creative Sequencing, Use of Props and Modifications, as well as the practice of self-enquiry and mindfulness.
The anatomical principles taught in this course are applicable to every style of yoga, and knowing them will complement the way you teach Vinyasa flow as well. Besides from learning about skeletal variations and their application in Yin yoga, you will also learn Chinese Meridians theory and why this is relevant for Yin yoga. This course will also introduce you to how to hold space during Yin yoga classes, share meaningful themes, lead meditations and self- enquiry.
Ameriga, the lead teacher of this training, has trained extensively in Yin Yoga with Jo Phee, senior student of Paul Grilley, studying also for advanced modules such as cadaver dissection. In her classes she brings together her technical knowledge with her experience in leading self-enquiry journeys grounded in yoga philosophy.
