Yintensive® 35 Hour Yin Teacher Training
Yin is a highly therapeutic, meditative style that requires a wise and informed approach. To teach it well one has to know the philosophical theory that was its 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.
Yin Teacher Training with Mandy is different. Curriculum nods to tradition but asks deeper questions about the purpose of Yin and how we can truly harness this modality to help our students.
Feel. Observe. Absorb.
Yin yoga has a fascinating genesis in Taoisim and is an evolving expression of the Chinese Meridian system. Though it is important to understand the context of Yin, to teach and practice well we will delve into the science of Yin. You’ll understand the specific Yin protocol of duration and you’ll know how to guide practice in a way that is both safe and transformative. Establish a strong foundation and make the information your own!
