Why is Yin …. Yin?
Yin isn’t just the same old poses held for longer. It’s a highly therapeutic, meditative style that requires a completely different approach. To teach it well one has to know the philosophical theory that was it’s genesis and the anatomical and physiological protocol that makes it such a healing practice. So often we teachers regurgitate the rhetoric of our teachers but Yin is more than theory. Learn the science behind the “Yin tissues”. Discover the true and false of traditional strategies to make your teaching even stronger.
We’ll focus on what we can feel and observe. Yin yoga has a fascinating genesis in Taoisim and is an evolving expression of the Chinese Meridian system.
