50 Hours
Advanced Yin Yoga Teacher training

Dive deep into the Daoist Elements and Meridians and learn all the essential aspects of practicing and teaching this contemplative method. The philosophical and energetic aspects of Yin Yoga can be a gateway to deep healing and offer resources of inspiration for your practice and your teaching.

Yin yoga is simple, but not easy. Sometimes being still is the hardest of all asana. The stillness of the floor-based, long held static stretches (with relaxed muscles) create the space to practice mindfulness and cultivate awareness. We embrace our own physical limitations rather than trying to fight against them and work with the body just as it is, and that in and of itself is an amazing thing. We are practicing acceptance, surrendering to gravity, connecting our body to a Zen state of mind.

While we are expanding our flexibility and rejuvenate our joints, we reveal and release deep layers of tension held within your fascia. The healing wisdom of the Daoist philosophy provides insight and guidance to get in touch with our body, mind, and soul. We get the unique opportunity to release emotional tension, free stagnant or blocked energy, and to cultivate a peaceful quality of mind.

This 50-hour course unfolds over two weeks (10 study days) with enough free leisure time to enjoy after an extensive day of yoga practice, lectures and posture studies. Timings are from 10am to 4pm, but to integrate the Yang in our Yin -after all its all about the balance- you are welcome join in our early morning practice with different dynamic styles of yoga.

The teachings includes the foundations and principles of Yin, the physical benefits of the practice, the meditative possibilities and energetic effects from a Daoist / Oriental Medicine perspective.

For an embodied experience of the theory behind the practice students will have the chance to teach in the second week. Focus here is to imply sequences according to the Daoist Elements, understanding their energetic value and the subtle art of creating the ideal environment for a transformational experience of body, mind and soul to take place.
