YIN YOGA TEACHER TRAINING – II

This is a yin yoga teacher training and is open to both yin yoga teachers and dedicated yoga practitioners who have undertaken an approved foundation yin yoga teacher training course and are in the process of advancing their yin skills and wishing to deepen them. The training includes learning to teach yin yoga from a functional approach, the art of adjustments in yin yoga, learning to map meridians, soft tissue anatomy of the hip, mindfulness meditation skills and practices for the body, heart & mind, psychological enquiry through both interpersonal and intrapersonal practices, felt sensing and the subtle body, the importance of the vagus nerve and enteric nervous system and building the body of a teacher.

This training is powerful self developmental work and goes deeper into the concepts and practices of Yin in terms of teaching, reading bodies and knowing when adjustments are appropriate or not. Material from the level I training is not repeated and new yin postures are taught in this course.
