Brick City Yoga STL, 2758 Wyoming Street, 1st Floor, St. Louis, United States
Yin Yoga Teacher Training & Weekend Intensive
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.
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.
