About The Event
50hr Yin Yoga Teacher Training
Yin yoga is a practice of patience and stillness, which offers us the opportunity to work deeply into the body's connective tissues and energy lines while bringing awareness to the mind's fluctuations. By holding the postures for long periods of time, we experience the effects of slow and mindful movement. These long holds give us a chance to slow down and listen to our body’s own natural intelligence.
Yin Yoga is rooted in the ancient systems of Hatha Yoga and merged with the Traditional Chinese Medicine system of Meridian lines. This synergy allows the practitioner to draw upon the healing properties of both a physical and energetic practice.
This training will gain a comprehensive and well-rounded understanding of the energetic body and its pathways and how these energy lines influence our tissues, organs, mental and emotional states. To support the transformational qualities of the Yin practise, we will focus on Meditation techniques, Pranayama, and Yoga Nidra, as well as skilful sequencing, alignment and modifications to suit different body types and injuries. You will have simple techniques and effective tools to build on your teaching and practice.
Join Donald Shakes and guest teachers over two weekends; with many years of experience and knowledge to share and a passion for teaching, you will learn the fundamentals and principles of Yin through hands-on practice and teaching.
We welcome people from all backgrounds to attend this training. Ideal for practising Yoga teachers looking for more experience and/or a new facet of the yoga practice to offer their students. It is suitable for passionate students wanting to deepen their own practice and knowledge.
