YIN + RESTORATIVE YOGA TEACHER CERTIFICATION
Learn about yin and yang in yoga. All of life, and yoga is a play of balance. How to find balance between the go, go New York life style and the more quieting, grounding, meditative “yin” aspects of yoga to your own practice as well as in your teaching. .
Although, yin and restorative practices are sometimes referred to as the same or similar, they have distinct differences. Yin yoga works on tight and contracting connective tissues such as ligaments, tendons and the myofascia. Each pose is held for several minutes at a time to help let go of the muscles’ efforts and to passively “exercise” the connectives tissues in the ideal way for them to respond with vibrant health and energy. Restorative yoga is the practice where your body is fully supported by props so that you can find ultimate relaxation–here we are not working on anything other than passively opening different parts of the body.
The first weekend of this course will focus on yin yoga practice–its history, physical and energetic benefits, poses, how to sequence the class and how to teach.
The second weekend focuses on restorative yoga. This is mostly experiential–we will spend a great deal of time putting each other into poses to learn how to use the props, modify and spot tell-tale signs of discomfort in students.
Upon completion, you will receive 32 CE credit hours.
If you are taking or considering taking our RYT200 certification you will get credit for 26 hours of course criteria.
