20 Hour Yin Yoga Teacher Training / Weekend Intensive

  • NuPower Yoga 2218 8th Ave South Nashville, TN (map)

Just as these two great studios came together to join forces for their 300 hour teacher training, join me in exploring the wonderful world of yin yoga!

We will spend the weekend exploring the many postures of yin yoga, the physical, mental and energetic benefits of this style of practice, and the anatomy necessary to understand how different bodies create different shapes. We will look more closely at Paul Grilley's "Functional Approach to Yoga" and how it works with the teachings of yin and yang asana. We'll also dive a bit deeper into meridian theory and how it relates to yin poses.

This training is a part of Nupower and Liberation Yoga's 300 hour teacher training program. It is also open to any 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.

This course qualifies for 20 hours of CE credit with Yoga Alliance for registered yoga teachers.

We’ll be focusing on:
· The history and philosophy of yin yoga
· The main poses of yin yoga
· Newer yin poses that target the upper body
· The Functional Approach to Yoga
· Skeletal variation and how it affects the shape of the pose
· Anatomy review to support the Functional Approach
· Understanding connective tissue and fascia
· Stressing tissues through Compression and Tension
· Target areas of the poses
· Modifications and prop use
· Chinese Meridian theory as it relates to yin
· Introduction into mindfulness meditation practices
· How to build a class (sequencing, timing, music, props, intention)

You'll also get practice time teaching each other what you've just learned! Putting this knowledge into action.
