This teacher training course approaches yoga from an energetic perspective, yet you will also learn a lot about the physical part in a grounded, down-to-earth way. Yin and Yang is the symbol of polarities, that people encounter everywhere in this dualistic world. In Rise & Shine Yoga's context Yin is the principle of the feminine, receptive, still, intuitive and meditative quality, while Yang is the principle of the masculine, active and expressing quality. In the cosmic order these two qualities have their eternal flow, dance where they always balance each other out and come back to balance. People have these qualities in their lives as well, but sometime we can get out of balance. Especially as most of us live in a western society, where usually the “doing” part is exaggerated and there is little time space for nurturing the quietude, the receptivity, and the connection to our own Source.
Often even in our yoga practice, we have the tendency to just go for something highly activating and just moving through the poses rigorously. However the essence of yoga is the deep connection with your inner stillness, and finding unity within and unity with the world around you. So this teacher training is teaching how to create balance, as in balance, unity reveals itself and growth can happen. Awakening can happen. Only when the waves are still then we can step by step forward on our awakening path.
This training includes two modules, a Yang teacher training module, a more dynamic, active style of module, that will enable you to teach soulful flow classes, and a Yin yoga module that will enable you to teach deeply rejuvenating, meditative Yin yoga classes. And of course mindful and soulful Yin-Yang classes.
You will stay in a beautiful villa.
Upon completion of this yoga teacher training, students will be eligible to register with Yoga Alliance. Registration with Yoga Alliance provides a globally recognized credential.
This Yin-Yang yoga teacher training will enable you to create the "Yin space", the quality and energy within yourself, so it can enrich and balance your life, and so you will be able to offer it to others. The peaceful, compassionate allowing presence that heals all imbalances by just "being with it". You will learn how to allow yourself to feel emotions, intensity, to reopen shut down senses, and then to able to let all the sensations and emotions (emotion means energy in motion) flow and go instead of diving into the story of it and holding onto them.
With Rise & Shine Yoga's popular Yin teacher training module you will be able to create a Yin class or session, long or short for a group, for an individual session, or for yourself. You will learn transition poses and intelligent ways of sequencing: taking in consideration pose families, anatomical guidelines, and meridian therapy. You will be enabled to work on a one-on-one with clients with specific needs, complaints, and anatomical constitution.
You will also be able to tap into a balanced Yang quality, how to move and act without effort, without overdoing, without burning yourself out. Creating balance in your practice, in your life and your teachings as yoga teacher. With the Yang teacher training module you will be able to create a soulful, energizing, uplifting flow class based on energetic sequencing, connected to the meridians, and the five elements, and according to an anatomical approach (sequence for hips, shoulders, etcetera).
You will learn the basic poses both for the Yin and the Yang practices and you will be able to blend them together in a beautiful harmonious way. To promote balance, healing, growth on the soulful journey. We will also study mantras, mudras and breathing techniques, as well as specific meditations.
This course is a deeply transformative healing journey, as only by healing and loving yourself first then you can offer these qualities to others, by going through the experience instead of just talking about the theories behind it. There will be a lot of focus on your personal experience and opening up to senses, listening, and landing in your true nature.
Yin yoga has a deeply healing effect. And even though every person is different, every story is different, and a healing process requires not only the realizations of the patterns and underlying emotional memories and tensions behind every disease but also new conscious choices about your life, you can acknowledge that with appropriate sequences you can rebalance major imbalances in the body with regular Yin practice.
The body imbalances such as allergies, digestive, hormonal problems, back problems, mental problems, blood pressure problems, anxiety symptoms, emotional blockages, and lack of energy, and the emotional disorders such as lack of determination, trust and confidence, anger problems, depression, fears can all be nurtured by appropriate Yin practice with great results.
Eventually, it can transform your life into a more loving, more still, more attentive and caring, enjoyable journey, than the fast-paced western pattern. Adding the Yang to the Yin, you will be able to get into a soulful flow which moves so much fresh and balanced energy in your body that it can release much easier tensions, and you can step onto a higher, brighter state of awareness yourself.
The Yang module starts on October 10th, 2017 at 10:00 a.m. and ends on October 24, 2017 at 17:00 p.m. The Yin module starts on October 26, 2017 at 10:00 a.m. and ends on October 31st, 2017 at 17:00 p.m. There will be a day off in between the two modules on October 25th, 2017.
