Yin Yoga TTC

Overview

The Yin Yoga teacher training course is suitable for experienced teachers, students wanting to deepen their practice and those wishing to get qualified in teaching Yin. Our Yin Yoga teacher training is intensive and carefully structured teacher training course.

Yin Yoga, having its roots in China, was founded on the Taoist theory of yin and yang – the concept of opposites which put together brings balance. Yin is stable and passive, while yang is changing and active. Yin poses are slow-paced and held passively, for a longer period of time (2-5 minutes) allowing the muscles to be relaxed using the time and gravity to facilitate a deep stretch targeting the connective tissues(such as ligaments) of the hips, pelvis, and lower spine while connecting with your inner self through a meditative approach.

During the practice of yin, we may experience discomfort in our bodies or minds. Our natural reaction could be to get out of the pose, adjust ourselves or to carry the mind away to anywhere but where we are. As it is not always possible to run away or change where we are in any given moment, yoga then becomes the process of finding comfort within our discomfort.

The asanas practised in Yin Yoga are similar to the classical Hatha Yoga but the method of practice is different offering a unique means of relaxation and energy harvesting and is complementary to the traditional practice of Hatha Yoga.
