Saturday 28 and Sunday 29 March, 9.30-12.30 / 13.30-16.30 Intensive Yin Yoga Course: For teachers and practitioners
Now that Yin Yoga is becoming increasingly popular in the world of Yoga, it is important that new teachers have a clear idea about it: What is it? Where does it come from? What is its purpose? How and when to practice? What are the contraindications? How do the poses of Yin Yoga relate to other styles of Yoga?
Yin Yoga is a simple but advanced style of Yoga, which was born from the Taoist tradition, and focuses on the deepest tissues of the body: the connective tissues – ligaments, joints, bones and deep networks of the body fascia – rather than the muscles (which are the physical focus of Yang yoga practices), with passive and longer poses.
In addition to the physical benefits on different levels, Yin Yoga in paricular acts on the deep Meridians (energy channels), which we will study in detail, both in theory and practice.
The specific points we will touch on in the course will be:
- Anatomy, connective tissues
- Single Asanas of Yin Yoga
- Energy Anatomy (Meridians)
- Yin and mixed Yin/Yang sequences
Price for Saturday and Sunday: 280 CHF
Early Bird (until 28 February): 260 CHF
