There is a secret cloak of the sacred which ensheathes the beachfront town of Tulum, and Durga Excursions graciously returns to this potent portal to hold their annual 5 Elements Yin Yoga Teacher Training, where you will integrate the foundations of Yin yoga philosophy, anatomy and alignment, Chinese meridian theory, and the 5 elements to learn to safely and effectively teach Yin yoga. Emphasizing Buddhist practices of equanimity and loving-kindness, you will learn to use your authentic voice as an emerging Yin yoga teacher and guide unique sequencing in the sacred art of restoration.

Yin yoga is a practice that seeks to mindfully lengthen and lubricate the connective tissues and approach equanimity in the subtle and emotional body. Practicing the methods of stillness, mindfulness, and loving-kindness, Yin yoga empowers practitioners to coax prana into particular healing and rejuvenating pathways.

Teaching Yin yoga is a divine practice for deep healing, and the mounting need to offer such practices grows more vividly each day. Spend a divine week on the beach learning to teach Yin yoga, alongside daily Yang (Vinyasa and Iyengar) and pranayama practices, meditation, learning the art of adjustments, the sensual science of sequencing, and more.

Noble silence and daily ritual

Each day will begin with a noble silence practice, where you will integrate Vipassana style meditation, Yang Vinyasa, Iyengar, and pranayama to awaken and enrich the inner life. You will remain in silence through breakfast, after which you will break the silence with learning modules crafted to deepen your own relationship to yoga and Chakra theory, asana, and alignment, Buddhist and 8 limb yoga philosophy, meridians, sequencing, and adjustments, and more. After lunch, you will dive into each of the 5 elements, and embody the practice through guided Yin sequencing of each element. Cooking classes, yoga Nidras, Restorative practices, and teaching practicums will be segmented throughout the evenings.

This Yin Intensive training is a potent addition to integrating components of Yin and Restorative yoga into your own daily practice and into the yoga studios. Durga Excursions encourages seasoned yoga facilitators as well as emerging and brand new students who wish to deepen their own practice or begin teaching and sharing the essential practice of Yin yoga with others. Come to Tulum to learn to teach Yin yoga!
