The new upcoming Yin Yoga & Mindfulness Meditation Teacher Training in February 2022 is a 5 week 50 hour Yoga Alliance registered Teacher Training. (YACEP). The training focuses on essential tools and skills on how to effectively teach and practice yin yoga postures for the five yin yang organ pairs according to Chinese Meridian Theory, whilst incorporating the study and understanding of skeletal variations of the hip joint through anatomy and interoception. This online training brings a deep level of how to integrate Mindfulness within the practice of Yin Yoga through Meditation and Pranayama practices & Psychological Enquiry through inter and intrapersonal skills practices.
The course is delivered to you each week through recordings of lectures on theory as well as class practicums for each of the Yin Yang organ pairs. In the live interactive Zoom sessions you will experience led Meditation practices and deconstructing Yin Yoga asanas in small group posture clinics. Following each week of lectures and live Zoom you will be sent relevant classes for that week of study to practice as revision to help reinforce your learning and understanding. This is a course suitable for all yoga teachers, teacher trainees, dedicated yoga students and other professionals. It is not necessary to be an experienced Yin Yoga practitioner or a yoga teacher to do this course.
Meridian theory and Chinese Medicine for organ health is introduced and the course includes learning Yin Yoga poses through understanding the meridians, lectures in anatomy for the hip joint and practical teaching applications on understanding and building interoception skills through practice and observing unique skeletal variations in individuals.
Past course content and so much more is now able to be delivered online now through richer material and having time to digest the content. Having taught this course multiple times online the curriculum has been expanded in much greater and clearer detail. Sarah feels there are unique advantages to every student being able to observe the demonstrations closely and to hear the lectures clearly as well as being able to repeat them. Each week a new set of recordings of lecture sessions will be made available for 7 days after which time they will expire and you will receive a new set of recordings. It will be your responsibility to keep up with your learning each week. Those students wishing to obtain certification must attend all of the live interactive sessions. Evidence of attendance is required by Yoga Alliance in order to qualify for certification of hours so Zoom screens will need to be on for the live sessions.
You will receive a comprehensive state of the art 100 + page Digital Yin Yoga & Mindfulness Meditation Teaching Training Manual in colour 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 online 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 high level of skills to enable you to teach and practice Yin Yoga with greater confidence.
