50-hr Yin Yoga Teacher Training


50-Hr Yin Yoga Teacher Training

1 - 8 May 2019
Hoi An, Vietnam


What is Yin Yoga? Yin Yoga is “a being” practice and gives us the perfect opportunity to practice this deep connection and integration with long held postures and inward focused techniques. Yin yoga uses long-held (3-5mins) floor based postures to temporarily “stress” the deep connective yin tissues in the body. Deep connective tissues in the body do not respond the same as muscles. They are able to resist brief stresses but slowly change when a moderate stress is maintained for a longer period of time (3-5mins).

Holding this stress with a connective tissue , to an appropriate edge, with muscles relaxed, for an extended period of time, creates a change in its fluids and results in a lengthening of the tissue and a feeling of space. This allows a greater movement of chi through the area, maintaining the health of the meridian system of the body, which is enjoyable and promotes the healing response.
