Anatomy is the key. Without an understanding of muscles and joints, true confidence in teaching Yin Yoga is elusive.
In this training we will focus on the 14 joint segments, discussing which joints are involved in our Yin postures as well as our range of motion which helps us understand why each person practices poses differently.
Having learned the 14 joint movements we will explore the 10 muscle groups involved in a Yin practice.
Our practice of poses will be augmented with movement tests we perform on each other.
In addition to lectures and demonstrations we will have 1.5 hours of Yin and or Yang practice each day.
Key concepts in this training are:
14 skeletal segments.
10 muscle groups.
7 categories of poses
tension vs compression
assisted yin yoga
The key principles of this training are based on Alan’s studies with Paul Grilley.
Please note: The only prerequisite for this Level 2 Yin Training at Yoga Passage, is that you've taken some form of a basic Yin Yoga Teacher Training.
