The pendulum of Yoga’s diverse offerings in the West now regularly includes the slower, introspective breeds of yoga & mindfulness practices. Yet we modern beings are so often drawn down the YANG path of action in these 24/7 times we live in whether willingly or because that’s “how it is” — often doing and accomplishing more and more – yet overlooking key moments to slow down, drop in, and refill our own wells.YIN Yoga serves as a powerful antidote to address the demands and pace of The 21st Century Digital Age.  Over our two weekends together we’ll gather for this YIN Yoga Teacher Training to explore The Art of Deceleration.In the first weekend we’ll review YIN’s foundational elements and benefits by practicing the key traditional asanas, modifications & breathing techniques. During the second weekend we will cover a spectrum of pertinent topics to strengthen the understanding & articulation of each subjects’ relevance in language, mood and delivery, with a relevant practice session during the second weekend’s curriculum topics.

Curriculum overview:

Yin Yoga’s Taoist & Indian Roots – Historical Origin & Lineage

“New Anatomy” Roots — Fascial anatomy, its relationship to YIN Yoga, and to overall well-being

Human Biology – Bones, the nervous system (parasympathetic nervous system & sympathetic nervous system) & the endocrine system (glands & hormones)
