100hr Yin Yoga &
Chinese Meridians Teacher Training
DEC 2ND- 12th, 2019
THE ROAD TO INNER PEACE.
Yin Yoga and TCM ( Traditional Chinese Medicine ) taken as two separate entities may seem like they do not go hand in hand. Although in actuality they have a significant supporting role to play for each other. In this training we will explore all the fundamental elements of both of these practices.
As you will come to learn, there are certain elements in TCM that come to light and that can be accessed through the practice of Yin Yoga. That being said, Yin Yoga and TCM put together, brings about a holistic healing experience of both the physical and spiritual bodies combined.
In TCM, the twelve regular meridians address our physical and emotional symptoms. Furthermore you will find an additional eight extraordinary meridians that aid in the path towards spiritual progression. This training has been designed to provide you with a well- rounded foundation where you will learn both of these aspects of TCM.
Additionally, within the course of this training, you will learn all the key elements of TCM and Yin Yoga, including the colors & healing sounds of the chakras and the meridians, the Yin and Yang organs and the emotions that are associated with them, the essential acupressure points and the five elements. As a result, you will learn how to combine acupressure points and Qigong into your personalized Yin Yoga practice.
It is no secret that the word is getting harder to live in day by day. The constant rising of stress levels in people are causing insomnia, anxiety and depression to name a few things. The need for everyday individuals to escape from the stress of their everyday lives and toxicity is ever increasing. This is where the combination of TCM and Yin Yoga has significant value. If practiced correctly it can pave to path to mental tranquility and help lead people into a place of stillness which can result in the relaxation of both the body and the mind.
Also, do not forget Yin yoga is for everyone. Regardless of age, ability and other conditions. It is the perfect supplement to any other types of high intensity Yoga and physical activities.
