Learn to Help Students Let Go
Wind down your practice and teaching with the yoga style that embraces stillness in the body and slowly allows opening and release, physically, mentally, and emotionally. In this course, learn the unique philosophy and approach of yin yoga and the fundamentals of teaching this style of yoga.
Many modern yoga students know how to flow and strengthen with the "yang" styles of yoga, but many need to be supported in unwinding, releasing tension, calming, and balancing the energies in their bodies with more "yin" style practice. In this course, you will learn the physiological and spiritual benefits that slow, calming yoga practice can offer. The stillness of yin yoga can be soothing and challenging. In this course, you will learn teaching skills that help you hold space for this practice that can be both liberating and difficult and learn how to support your students in this practice that embraces balance and fosters patience.
