WHAT IS YIN YOGA?
Yin Yoga applies moderate stress to the connective tissues of the body - the tendons, fascia, and ligaments, with the aim of increasing circulation in the joints and improving flexibility. All poses are on the floor, either seated, supine, or prone, and are held with the muscle relaxed for at least 3 to 5 minutes. This deep practice is gentle yet intense, helping to release tension and practice staying present. Yin beautifully complements all of your existing yoga practices.
This Yin Yoga Teacher Training will have information and training based on the forerunner’s of Yin Yoga - Paulie Zink (the father of Yin Yoga), Paul Grilley and Sarah Powers who developed Yin Yoga from what they learned from Paulie Zink, and Bernie Clark. I have found all four (4) of these teachers to be greatly different in their approach and teaching style of Yin Yoga.
Through each Module - I, II, III and IV we will study each of these teacher’s approach and practice in ‘their way’.
