Yin Yoga Teacher Training - 50hrs
Yin Yoga uses restorative, floor-based poses to nourish and stimulate the deeper energetic channels in the body, providing support for the immune system. Yin yoga also provides the perfect container to develop deeper levels of self-inquiry and to cultivate the capacity for meditative self-awareness.
During the training aspect of our Retreat, Madonna Williams will guide you to take your practice to a deeper level. You will learn the techniques, energetic influence, anatomy and philosophy to Yin Yoga practice. This unique training will also combine traditional yoga techniques with the meridians of Chinese medicine and meditation.
You will learn a series of sequences that teaches both the dynamic flow poses (yang) and the more passive resting poses (yin) as it’s foundation. You will learn how to integrates this unique expression of yin and yang yogas with traditional Chinese medicine, Taoism, psychology and Buddhist philosophy to create one of the most complete and balanced systems of modern yoga.
This training is designed to deepen your own personal practice of yoga, meditation and mantra by integrating elements of meditation and self-inquiry into your daily yoga practice.
Learn and practise Sadhana including pranayama and meditation and immerse yourself in a safe and lovingly guided transformation journey.
