YIN YOGA & MINDFULNESS MEDITATION TEACHER TRAININGS – LIVE ONLINE

This is a four-day training in yin yoga which focuses on the fundamental skills of how to effectively teach and practice yin yoga postures for the five yin yang organ pairs according to Chinese Meridian Theory, whilst incorporating the anatomical study and understanding of skeletal variations of the hip. This live virtual course also brings a deep level of the foundations of Mindfulness through Meditation, Pranayama & Psychological Enquiry and how to integrate these deeper skills into a Yin Yoga practice. There will be daily led Meditation practices as well as teaching and deconstructing Yin Yoga asanas in an experiential way. It is a course suitable for yoga teachers, teacher trainees, dedicated yoga students and other professionals. It is not necessary to be an experienced Yin Yoga practitioner to do this course.

Meridian theory and Chinese Medicine for organ health is introduced and the course includes learning Yin Yoga poses for the short meridian sequences, lectures in anatomy for the hip joint and some practical teaching applications on understanding and building interoception skills through practice and observing unique skeletal variations in individuals. 

The same course content is delivered online live as it would be in a live teacher training setting. Having taught this course multiple times online Sarah feels that there are unique advantages to every student being able to observe the demonstrations closely and to hear the lectures clearly. Recordings will be made available for everyone for up to 7 days for those who are not able to attend the live training. The timings are the same as with in person trainings and with being able to move students into small groups, seeing slides online where students are able to easily capture the information we are able to transition through the sessions smoothly. You will also receive a comprehensive Yin Yoga Teaching Training Manual which teachers in the past have found an invaluable resource to their Yin Yoga teaching. From her previous testimonials, Sarah feels that leading this training offered live streaming has added a new dimension to virtual trainings offering a safe and highly effective way to share her knowledge in a rich and equally powerful way. The course has been carefully thought through and adapted to an online format so that you can acquire a level of skills to enable you to teach and practice Yin Yoga.

Sarah’s courses are recommended and endorsed by Sarah Powers from the Insight Yoga Institute.
