Each Yin pose is the opportunity to crawl into ourselves and stay awhile!

In Yin Yoga, we rest passively in postures for two to five minutes, or longer, for a deeply relaxing experience that leaves us feeling more comfortable in our body and more at ease in the world. Yin Yoga stresses fascia beneficially while simultaneously supporting the health of mind and body by targeting the meridians of all the major organ systems.

Yin is a slow, soothing style of yoga that targets the deep connective tissues of the pelvis, hips and spine. Create feelings of spaciousness in mind and body with Yin Yoga.

In this course you will discover how to develop your own Yin Yoga practice as well as learning how to teach this unique practice to others. Whether you are already a yoga teacher or want to begin your teaching journey with Yin Yoga, this course will give you the tools you need to support others with stretch and meditative stillness.

You will learn to share the benefits and techniques of Yin Yoga in a way that will allow you to share this practice with others. This course will guide you through the theory behind Yin Yoga, illustrating the benefits of the training physiologically, energetically, and psychologically. It will also dive deeply into the practice, teaching you how to do Yin Yoga safely and teach it to others.
