Yin Yoga TT

Yin Yoga is a merging of 2 philosophies and while it has a seemingly short history, there is more to it than meets the eye.  In this course we seek to understand the nature of yin, philosophically, anatomically, physiologically,  and psychologically, delving into the subtle body and subtle parts of ourselves and the science behind the practice.  We look beneath the skin.  

Exploring 30 yin yoga asanas, how and when to prop them according to a person’s unique needs. Additionally we examine how to sequence and construct a class noting the importance of words as well as silence and the potency of inner awareness.

Mindfulness; meditation and breath work and its integration within this yoga practice, to teach and to hold the space in silence.
