Yin yoga originates from the Taoist principle of Yin and Yang, two completely opposite natures complementary to each other. Yin yoga is a powerful, slow, and subtle form of yoga which offers dipper impact to tendons and muscles, with a meditative layer, too. During this form of yoga, asanas are combined with pranayama and meditation with a passive relaxation along with deep opening. The postures in this form of yoga are mostly practiced on the floor and held for a longer duration (two to five minutes) which is aimed at deeper impacting the body.
Yin yoga works with muscles and connective tissues which are considered almost 90 per cent resistance to the flexibility of the human body. With its longer duration of pose-hold and practice of breath control, Yin yoga offers a relatively deeper impact while guiding in the direction of complete calmness. Asanas in Yin yoga are relatively similar to that of Indian Hatha yoga but practiced differently to offer a completely different meaning to relaxation and energy harvesting.
This Yin yoga teacher training course is scientifically programmed to maintain a perfect balance between body and soul while practicing yoga postures. You not only learn the basics, how different postures work on different parts of the body and how deep they impact while offering you relaxation but will also master the skills to relay this form of Yin yoga to your students effectively. With yoga, pranayama, meditation, and practice, Vinyasa Yoga Academy makes sure to expose you to all essential elements of Yin yoga so that you can become a teacher of this form.
You will understand the flow of chi inside the human body and learn to master the art of guiding chi in your desired direction. With an understanding of fascia, meridians, and energy systems you will be offered yoga teacher training that is highly rational and fruitful. They teach you motion analysis, breathing techniques, use of props, variations in different forms of asanas, and flow of chi in the body.
With this Yin yoga teacher training course you will gain a deeper insight into the energy flow of yoga with mastering the skills of harnessing power and attainment of supreme relaxation. As this is a slow-moving yoga during which holding a pose is important, the instructors at Vinyasa Yoga Academy ensure that the students learn the exact difference between Yin yoga, the relatively similar Hatha yoga and practice, and complete trance.
The Vinyasa Yoga Academy team consists of highly qualified Indian teachers and staff members. All teachers have a unique approach with a personal touch of love, paying attention to the group's process but also meeting the student's personal needs.
