50 Hours Online – Yin Yoga Teacher Training
Are you interested in a very small, personal, interactive online Yin Yoga Therapy Teacher Training? Join me live in Goa – No pre-recorded videos or big groups but real onscreen interaction and practical teaching experience for the students! I offer only max. 6 places to make sure we can all connect personally in conversations for this training on Zoom. Part of the training will be the opportunity to experience teaching yin online yourself to your fellow students and receive constructive feedback.
You will get a solid understanding of Yin Yoga as a healing modality. Learn all the essential elements of Yin Yoga and integrate and practice the therapeutic and mindfulness aspects. We look into the yin side of yoga from all angles and dive in deep in the subject how to apply Yin Yoga as therapy. I guide you on the path to gain the knowledge, the practical experience and the certificate to share this wisdom.
This Yin Therapy Training can be a gateway to reconnect to your true self. To experience a deep opening in both body and mind. To dive deep into the Taoist healing wisdom of Chi and the Meridian flow. Ultimately to experience Yin Yoga as a healing modality and a way to live.
When you awaken and align your body’s underlying energy, you activate your innate process of healing and transformation. I will demystify how energy affects everything you do and feel—and show you how to work with your body and your mind.
You will learn about acupressure points applied in the poses and sequencing according to physical or emotional issues. The alternative medicine aspect of Daoism offers the opportunity to deep healing and profound transformation. You will learn simple principles, tools, and practices that balance your subtle body—which is how physical, emotional and spiritual healing begins—so you can build vitality, unravel energetic blockages, and boost your immunity.
The five Daoist Elements give you resources of inspiration for your practice and your teaching. Mindfulness will be a subject in focus and I will guide you how to integrate mindfulness principles to transform a yin yoga class into a meditation practice and a healing session.
In this course you will find the opportunity to practice teaching online yourself and develop your own style in the art of teaching yin. Focus is to imply sequences according to the Daoist Elements, understanding their energetic value and the subtle art of creating the ideal environment for a transformational experience of body, mind and soul to take place.
By the end of this course, you will feel stronger, healthier, and better able to thrive and flow in the life you are meant to live.
