15 Hour Yin Yoga Teacher Training / Weekend Intensive

  • We Yogis 5600 Lovers Lane Dallas, Tx USA (map)


Yin expert Melissa Christensen, ERYT500-YACEP will lead you through a YIN-credible weekend learning all about this amazing practice. Working from the “yinside” out, we will explore the main postures of yin yoga, the benefits of this style of practice, and basic anatomy necessary to understand how different bodies create different shapes. You'll be introduced to Paul Grilley's "Functional Approach to Yoga" and how it works with the teachings of yin.

This training is open to both current and aspiring yoga teachers, as well as enthusiastic students who wish to spend the weekend immersed in all things Yin. You’ll leave this weekend with the foundation and ability to guide yourself and your students safely and effectively into a wide variety of yin poses.

After this weekend, you'll be certified to teach yin yoga. This course also qualifies for 15 hours of CE credit with Yoga Alliance for registered yoga teachers.

We’ll discuss:
· The history and philosophy of yin yoga
· The main poses of yin yoga
· What is connective tissue and fascia
· What areas of the body each pose intends to target
· Modifications and prop use for each pose
· Counterposes and Rebound
· Compression vs Tension
· Discussion of anatomy and skeletal variation - The Functional Approach to Yoga
· How to “read and understand” varying body types/limitations in this practice as a teacher
· Understanding the physical, energetic and mental benefits of the practice
· Discussion of meridians and mindfulness meditation
· How to build a class (sequencing, timing, music, props, intention, etc.)
AND - you'll get actual practice time teaching each other what you've just learned!

Please bring either Bernie Clark's book - The Complete Guide to Yin Yoga or Sarah Powers book - Insight Yoga for reference.
