15 Hour Yin Yoga Teacher Training / Weekend Intensive


  • Yoga Durango 1485 Florida Rd Durango, CO 81301 (map)

Yin Yoga weekend training / intensive - open to all students!

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.

The weekend is 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 15 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.
