YIN YOGA creates a unique connection in the deeper layers of the body and mind. On a physical level it works on stimulating the deeper parts of the tissues such as ligaments, bones, and joints, particularly helping remove blockages in the connective tissues of the spine, pelvis and hips.
It is a great way to balance one's active (yang) style of yoga as it creates expansion and length in the body through what seems to be a gentle, soft, passive approach. In Yin Yoga postures are held for longer periods of time than in most yoga practices, varying from a range of a minute up to 15, or even 20 minutes.
At Inner Heart Yoga's 200 Hour Yin Yoga & Meditation Teacher Training, you will learn how to safely teach and sequence a wide range of Yin Yoga Postures. Guiding safely and preparing the body for long holds so that we consciously work on all parts of the body, ankles, feet, knees, hips, pelvis, inner thighs and lower spine.
THE LINK BETWEEN YIN YOGA AND MEDITATION is crucial as yin yoga prepares physically and mentally the mind for the journey of meditation. Through both practices, the student learns to become fully aware of the deep layers of the mind and the body, to understand the duality of life through "relaxation of effort" and meditation on the unlimited.
The 200 Hour Yin Yoga Teacher Training Program provides future yoga teachers the skills & knowledge necessary to work intelligently with students from all backgrounds and ages who wish to undergo a serious yin yoga practice that is safe as well as those who wish to delve into deep meditational practices.
Learn the ancient origins of Yin Yoga as well as the modern exponents of this wonderful practice which is designed to help you release tension, sit longer, feel more comfortable within your own skin, and basically stretch all the connective tissues around the joints (whole spine, pelvis, knees as well as sacrum) and areas of the body which usually hold pent up tension as well as when not adequately activated loose their flexibility and elasticity.
Ancient origins date back from Hatha Yoga Pradipika, Gheranda Samhita, and Yoga Sutras of Patanjali and they give the outline as well as the ground work for the practitioner to use them as preparations to go into deep meditational practices.
Yin Yoga's essence is thouroughly linked with Sthiram Sukham Asanam, the practice of asanas were posture is comfortable and steady so that the mind can focus completely, without any distractions in the physical body and without the flickering thoughts on the mind so that meditation can arise.
In the Modern Origins of Yin Yoga we will take a close look at the main modern exponents of this wonderful practice and their influence in the practice of Yin to mention a few Paul Grilley, Sara Powers, Bernie Clack and Biff Mithoefer, among others.
