Hosted by Yoga Alma
April 11-15th, 2019
Harmony from Within
Do you feel unease with your current life situation? Do you feel stressed, drained, and unmotivated? In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), suppressed negative emotions are one of the many causes of illness. As we unleash the tension from our tissues, we also start to restore harmony from within. Over time, with consistent practice, we'll start to feel more positive, happy, and energetic.
This training draws on the wisdom of ancient Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), and is designed to help you regain healthy balances in all dimensions of your life. For thousands of years, TCM has been widely practiced in China to improve people's body and mind. According to TCM, there are twelve regular meridians and eight extraordinary meridians. While the regular meridians are used for healing purposes (such as headaches, body pains, indigestion, skin problems...etc), the eight extraordinary meridians are for spiritual pursuit. Learn in this teacher training the works of the twelve regular meridians, each meridian's associated emotion, colour & sound. As well, you'll find out which Yin poses correspond to each meridian and learn how to apply them intelligently into your sequences.
The training also serves as a much needed space for self-inquiry and contemplation. Each day, you'll study Yoga and Buddhist philosophies, as well engage in daily meditation, journaling, and mindfulness practice.
Yin yoga is for everyone. Even if you don’t intend to become a teacher, the wisdom and knowledge gained from this training will help you find harmony from within. As we improve on our well-being, we also manifest better relationships with our loved ones and others in our world. This course is vital if you’re looking for a positive shift in your current life.
The goal of yoga is mukti (freedom). This training serves as a stepping stone for you to get closer to a state of being free of mental and physical pain.
