Program

Functional anatomy:

This course will give you the fundamentals and foundations needed to teach Yin yoga safely. You will gain an intelligent understanding of how you can adapt the practice for different body types, exploring the bio-individuality of your body and its uniqueness upon everyone. You will be able to transfer all of what you learn to other styles of yoga to enable optimal functioning of body movement through physical asana practice.

Chinese medicine:

Discovering the roots of Yin. Breaking down the 5 Chinese elements you will be opened up to another world pertaining to Yin yoga. Incorporating Taoism into your practice will give you a deepened meaning and intention to what is beyond the asana. You will be prepared to teach from both a functional and an energetic point of view.

Program

This 11-day course will start with an orientation meeting on the first day at 5:00 p.m. where everything and everyone will be formally introduced. Please bring white attire for the certification and closing ceremony.

  • Week 1: Functional Anatomy, Fascia, and Art of Teaching
  • Week 2: Chinese Medicine, 5 Elements, and Art of Teaching

The day

Morning nurturing practice

This is the main practice of the day and is Yin yoga with mindfulness and meditation. The first week will have a strong focus on the functional approach to yoga, functional anatomy, and the unique bio-individuality of the body. Targeting the physical body you will incorporate physical target areas and visit multiple propping techniques for myofascial release through Yin yoga. The second week will have a strong focus on the energetic approach to yoga, targeting the energetic dimension of the body, incorporating Chinese 5 elements.

Theory:

This is the juicy bit of the course where we will have the opportunity to intricately break down the components of Yin yoga and reveal what it all means. In the first week, you will break down skeletal variation and dive deep into fascial studies. The second week is an introduction to Chinese Medicine, 5 Elements and Qi (energy, prana, Ki, vital life force). Some of the theory classes will have supporting educational videos and workshops to accompany the lecture. This session is to give you the scientific and theoretical foundation needed for a deeper understanding of experiential Yin yoga

Art of teaching and asana breakdown:

These classes are where Shanti Atma Yoga will break down what it means to teach Yin yoga. This is the ‘how to’ and the ‘why’. You could call this the ‘behind the scenes’ of Yin yoga teaching. The art of teaching is a discussion-based class and participation from students is welcome and encouraged. Asana breakdown is a practical class where we break down the Yin yoga asana (target area, cueing, propping). This requires small group work from students for experiential learning. This session is ultimately about you and building your teaching expertise.

Evening empowering practice:

Evening practice incorporates a multitude of inner practices that range from yang styles of yoga and movement to a meditation circle. This course will take you through a journey like no other. You will get the chance to get to know yourself, to come home to yourself, and most importantly to nurture, nourish and love yourself whole hardheartedly. This is where the heart meets humans and humans meet the soul.

Experiencing is fundamental to learning

Practicing

This course offers you the time to slow down and work on bringing yourself back into the parasympathetic nervous response. This is where rejuvenation, relaxation, and restoration reside. On a practicing level, you will dive deeper into the connection of yoga asana, meditation, and mindfulness, both on and off the mat.

Teaching

On a teaching level, you will significantly enhance your teaching style and technique with your personality. You will refresh your knowledge of functional anatomy, fascial studies, and the bio-individuality of the body through experiential workshops and theory sessions. You will be introduced to Chinese Medicine, the 5 elements, and will develop an art of teaching to teach Yin Yoga creatively and efficiently.

*This course has a strong thread of 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. Being an experiential, positive, and inspirational learning environment, you will embody the physical, energetic, mental-emotional realms within the Yin yoga practice from two points of view: the practitioner and the teacher.

There are two parts to the training:

Functional approach

This part of the training explores the understanding of the unique bio-individuality of the human body. This can be translated not only into Yin yoga but your day-to-day practices. You will be introduced to functional anatomy, the fascial system, tension and compression, skeletal variation, muscle groups, and target areas, asana breakdown, the art of teaching, and the art of propping. Propping is taught uniquely but can be adapted to all other styles of yoga asana.

Energetic approach

In this part of the training, Shanti Atma Yoga will break down the essence of the energetic body and how we can teach Yin yoga from this approach. Breaking down Chinese Medicine theory, Yin Yang Theory, and the 5 Chinese Elements you will gain new insight as to how we can benefit from yoga, how Qi (energy) flows around the body. You will layer onto the depth of philosophy by looking at the history of Yin yoga from its original roots; the Daoist point of view.
