60-Hour Yin Yoga Certification
Module toward 300-Hour Course or Yoga Alliance YACEP
Our “yang” dominated lifestyles of daily stress impacts our body and mind. Our bodies are asking for more balance.
Even though we long to be at ease and enjoy the present moment, we tend to keep going, because we don’t know any other way.
The Yin Yoga practice is designed to create space to just be, to rejuvenate the body, clear the mind, open up the heart and allow energetic healing to take place.
So welcome to the Yin Side, an invitation to bring healing and balance to our fast paced life.
Yin Yoga Teacher Training in a nutshell is all about how to:
- Maintain and rejuvenate the body
- Practice mindfulness principles on a physical level to create peace in our mind
- Connect to the Daoist wisdom of the meridian chi flow in our bodies – harmonize body, mind and soul
Yin yoga is simple, but not easy. Sometimes being still is the toughest of all asana. The stillness of the long-held static stretches with relaxed muscles allows space to practice mindfulness and awareness.
In Yin Yoga we embrace our physical limitations by working with the body just as it is. This in itself is an amazing thing. We are practicing to accept, surrender, and connect our body to a Zen state of mind.
The therapeutic healing wisdom of the Daoist philosophy provides insight and guidance to get in touch with our body, mind, and soul.
We get the unique opportunity to release emotional tension, free stagnant or blocked energy, and to cultivate a peaceful quality of mind.
At the end of this training you will have 60 hours of Yoga Alliance approved continuing education! This also counts as a module toward the GypSea 300-Hour online certification (for students who already have 200 RYT, and want to build toward the 500 RYT certification).
