LEVEL 1 Yin YTT
100hr of Chinese Meridians Intro, Myofascia Anatomy & Yin Yoga
Nov 15-25, 2017
In this 100hr Yin Yoga & Chinese Meridians Teacher Training, we will explore in length the energetic physiology and anatomy based on Traditional Chinese Medicine. Through an Eastern perspective, you'll find how our emotions and health are intrinsically linked. From thousands of years ago, the Chinese started to explore various ways to increase vitality. Along the way, they discovered, through equanimity of the physical, energetic and spiritual self, we can achieve optimal health.
Based on the ideology of Taoism, adopting the phenomenon of observing nature’s order, Yin Yoga is a gateway to enhancing a person's overall well-being by removing tension in the body and mind. In today's fast- paced world, Yin Yoga is increasingly in demand as more people are suffering from stress and physical ailments. Yin Yoga is also a sustaining self-practice that you can do regardless of age, ability and other conditions. For those who have a high-intensity yoga practice or sports training, Yin Yoga is a perfect complimentary to alleviate physical pain and mental stress.
