Yin Yoga - Course Skills

We will look at all the main aspects of yin yoga. Including:

  • the model behind yin yoga – how it works and the reasons and benefits of the practice
  • the physical anatomy of yin yoga
  • the subtle anatomy of yin yoga – looking at the energetic model behind the practice, working with meridians and energy flows
    where each meridian is in the body, what they are related to physically, mentally and emotionally
  • how to stimulate the meridians
  • the yin poses and class sequencing
  • how to modify the poses and use props to make them safe for all body types, including hyper-mobile and very flexible bodies
  • how to structure a practice and a class, including knowing how much to say and when
  • using a healing touch in yin yoga

There will also be plenty of time to reflect and share experiences.
