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.
This module focuses on nuances of various aspects of Yin Yoga practice for the students who want to either deepen their practice or those wishing to get qualified in teaching Yin.
This module enable students to understand the principle philosophy behind Yin Yoga, along with various physical and subtle aspects covering Yin and Yang tissues, role of fascia, benefits and contraindications to the practice.
This module is designed to equip the student with both modern and traditional teaching methodologies. It helps in building confidence of students as a teacher and equip them with tools to design, sequence and execute tailor made yoga programs/sessions.
Non-contact hours includes observation classes and teaching hours.
You will need a Yoga Teacher Training Certification from any recognised yoga school. Some teaching experience will be very helpful. It is good to have familiarity with Yin Yoga practice but it is not a must. You can meet our TTC student counsellor to know more about how to register for this program.
