Description of training:

This 50hr Yin Yoga & Chinese Meridians Teacher Training draws on the wisdom of Traditional Chinese Medicine and the application of Yin practice. How we feel in our body has a direct connection with our emotions and mental states. Strong feelings such as sadness, anger, worries, grief, and over-excitement can cause physical symptoms like body pains, insomnia, stress, fatigue, weight gain, indigestion, and skin irritations. You’ll discover in your training how the meridians or energetic channels that run in your body have a direct influence over your emotions. You’ll also learn and become skilled at relieving your physical discomforts through Yin Yoga based on the meridian system. A critical part of Yin practice is tapping into our subtle energy and vitalize our mind and body through energy works. You’ll learn different techniques such as Qi Gong and sound healing to find tranquility in the body and mind. Being a great Yin yoga teacher requires the ability to hold space for the others. Holding space means your ability to guide the students using minimal words or through fascinating storytelling. You will discover different teaching methods that will help you tap into your students’ emotions and how to take them onto a journey of equanimity in the body, mind, and spirit.
