Yin Yoga  50hrs 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 toa 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.

Yin Yoga 50-hour TT

This is a comprehensive Yin Yoga course which is open to all those who want to deepen their knowledge and experience of Yin, whether you are a teacher or simply curious about this multifaceted practice.

In the 6 days we cover the all the fundamentals of Yin, wandering beneath the skin, exploring what happens as we shape shift into the quietude of stillness.

It is YA accredited.

The topics of discovery are:

The philosophy and history and principles of Yin:

Its origins and evolution – tracing both the ancient and recent roots and the people pivotal to its emergence.  Exploring this marriage of two eastern philosophies offering a richness as we see how apply it to the practice itself.

The meridian theory:

Insight into the effects of this energetic system and its importance as one of the primary principals of this practice, giving access to a deeper understanding of how we can affect energy flow to impact our own health and facilitate healing.

Connective Tissue:

The complex network that holds us together. From our bones to our skin and the spaces in between, these deeper tissues, these deeper parts of ourselves, require a different approach to a strength-based practice.  This gives us insight as to why Yin is “the other half of the practice”.

Anatomy:

We are all uniquely formed- the exploration of skeletal variation with particular attention to the spine and the hips – the yin focus.

The Nervous system:

Understanding the fundamentals of the nervous system gives us a window into the mind/body connection and why the felt sense plays a profound part in our wellbeing. Simple tools through which we can evolve our resilience.

Mindfulness:

The pillars of mindfulness and its practical application as we weave it into a yin practice deepening the experience both in mind and body

The difference between yin/yang and yin and restorative

Teaching skills:

How to compose and sequence a Yin Yoga class. The importance of balancing words with quiet, holding space and the considerable effect themes play.

The poses:

we look at over 30 Yin poses in detail, verbal cueing, modifications and propping them according to individual needs and unique requirements, while simultaneously learning to see the subtle.

Restorative Workshop 15 hours 

This two-day workshop is a broad exploration of the art of Restorative Yoga, the yoga of physical stillness. In our short time together we will delve deeper into several aspects of this beautiful practice.

Topics of exploration are:

The History of Restorative Yoga

Where it stems from and how it emerged to quietly take its place in common yoga culture.

The Nervous System

This entails an overview of the highly complex nervous system through the restorative lens.  This will include the latest research on restorative yoga and its potential to positively impact the way we feel.

Teaching Skills

This style of yoga offers us an opportunity to teach in an altered to light, to hold space in stillness.  We cover the full spectrum of how to sequence, verbally assist, hold space and why words matter.

The Poses and Propping

A restorative practice is highly prop dependent and requires all the props in all the world!  The art of propping is at the very heart of this practice and takes skill.  Learning to prop involves learning to see. We will investigate when and how to offer hand-on assists.

It is my hope that over the course of this weekend you will deepen your love for Restorative Yoga and have a profound understanding of the power of this practice and its multiple applications.

Dates: 

  • 17 & 18 April
  • 11 & 12 September
9-4:30 Saturday & Sunday 
 

This workshop will be held in beautiful Hout Bay and is limited to 6 people

The Cost of the Course is R2000
