Yin Yoga Teacher Training & Practice Immersion:
Level 2 training for yoga teachers

Friday 9th Mar 2018

Join Cora Geroux, Em Cruickshank & Ryan Barraclough for an anatomy-informed,  50hr Yin Yoga Practice Immersion & Teacher Training. Held over 3 long weekends in March.

Just as the light cannot exist without the dark, yang cannot exist without yin. Yin yoga offers us a balancing force in our yoga practice in relation to the strong dynamic styles of yoga such as hatha, vinyasa and ashtanga.

Yin and Yang are concepts that govern all of life, yet stem from ancient Taoist philosophy. Indian yogis also held such concepts when they referred to hatha yoga – Ha (sun) Tha (Moon). When we drop into our yin nature we allow ourselves to become receptive and open.

Yin Yoga is a slow, mainly floor based practice where poses are held from 2 – 20 minutes. This style of practice brings immense physical, energetic and mental healing, as we work with the Meridian system from Traditional Chinese Medicine.
