Yin Yoga Teacher Training and Weekend Intensive
The weekend is open to current and aspiring yoga teachers, as well as enthusiastic students who wish to spend the weekend immersed in all things Yin.
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.
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.
