Villa Constantine is situated on the sunny southern coast of Spain, perfectly located between the mountains and the seaside for a retreat-like vibe, not too far from the city. The villa itself is nestled into the Spanish hills, a beautiful wonderland where human meets nature, nature meets heart, and heart meets soul. The serenity of this Spanish countryside is blissfully unique, providing a place to retreat in nature.

The spacious, modern rooms are beautifully decorated, and each space in the villa adds its own little flavor to the course. Join the group for morning Yin practice in the wooden yoga shala, spread out in the lounge for theory sessions, chill out by the pool during your breaks, and enjoy the view over the mountains during mealtimes.

What is Yin yoga?

Yin yoga is a powerful style of yoga that works towards physically unraveling the body’s matrix of tension, activating the parasympathetic nervous system, mentally transitions the mind into a meditative state, emotionally relaxes the body-mind complex, and energetically stimulates the flow of qi.

Yin yoga holds the key to unlocking the full potential of holistic and comprehensive yoga practice, both on and off the mat. If you are stuck in your teaching, want to refresh your approach to yoga, ignite your body-mind consciousness, or enhance your self-practice or teaching with a complementing style of yoga, then this course is for you.

Morning nurturing practice

This is the main practice of the day. This Yin yoga will take you deep within yourself to see, feel, hear, love, and nurture things that are invisible, intangible, and inaudible to the mind on the surface layer. Within the safe space of the shala, you will have nothing but time and heartfelt support to come home to yourself.

Theory

This is the juicy bit of the course where you will have the opportunity to intricately break down the components of Yin yoga, pranayama, meditation, and mindfulness to reveal what it all means. In the first week, you break down Yin theory, principles, and practice; western and yogic anatomy of pranayama; meditation theory and practice. In the second week, you take a sound look at how Yin yoga, pranayama, and meditation link into the pillars of mindfulness. With the added depth of philosophy and personal journalling, they focus on helping you find your Dao, your way, path, and purpose.

Art of teaching

These classes are where you will break down what it means to teach Yin yoga. This is the ‘how to’ and the ‘why to’. You could call this the ‘behind the scenes’ of teaching. The art of teaching is a discussion-based class and active participation from students is welcome and encouraged. The workshops require small group work from students for experiential learning. This session is ultimately about you and how to build your teaching expertise with help from them. They help you find your voice, your method, and your alignment in teaching from your heart.

Evening empowering practice

Evening practice incorporates a multitude of inner practices that range from yang styles of yoga and movement to a meditation circle and spiritual practices.

Training Parts

Practicing

This course offers you the time to move into the parasympathetic nervous response with the beat of your own rhythm. Embodying your body-mind-breath connection throughout the course you will feel revitalized and inspired. You will develop and deepen your Yin yoga practice way beyond asana.

Teaching

On a teaching level, you will be empowered and confident. You will explore how the pillars of mindfulness, meditation, and pranayama can be seamlessly interwoven into an asana class, strongly enabling you to offer a more profound Yin yoga experience to your students.

Essence

This course offers the what, why, where, when, and how. Through experiential workshops and theory sessions, you will be introduced to not only how to practice but the way to practice. This course has a strong thread of the art of teaching. The art of teaching will prepare you to understand the responsibilities of being a Yin yoga teacher, looking at key aspects within a teaching methodology.

Specific techniques shall be shared pertaining to pranayama, meditation, mindfulness, Yin, and Yoga. Being an experiential, positive, and inspirational learning environment, you will embody the physical, energetic, mental, and emotional realms within the Yin yoga practice from two points of view: the practitioner and the teacher.
