About 

In this 50 Hr Yin Yoga Teacher Training - Functional Anatomy Approach, you will be immersed in theory, practice, ideating intentional sequencing as well as indulging in conversation & self-exploration, helping you obtain a functional and relatable understanding of the yin practice as a whole. This course is for beginners with an already existing yoga practice as well as for the more seasoned practitioners looking to either deepen their own experience or begin their journey as a teacher.
 

Over the course of the 50 Hr Yin Yoga Teacher Training you will gain knowledge and experience in:

  • Functional Anatomy; understanding unique individuality of human beings and translating this into not only yin yoga but our day-to-day practices. You will be introduced to functional anatomy, the fascial system, muscle groups and target areas, asana (posture) breakdowns and the art of propping. Power of propping is taught in a unique way but can be adapted to all other styles of yoga asana.

  • Facilitating Responsibly; teaching from the heart while understanding the great responsibility you hold. You will gain practical experience in holding space for others mentally, emotionally and energetically but also keeping yourself and students safe while practicing yin yoga. We will explore things like communication, propping, sequencing and other components that make a strong teacher.

  • Science of Sequencing; learn how to artistically sequence a safe and powerful sequence with a variety of different themes and intentions. We will also explore the craft of timing a class, communicating courageously and vulnerably, and so much more.
