- Prerequisite: YIN YOGA TEACHER CERTIFICATION: LEVEL ONE
- This training is an advanced training that builds on the foundations of Yin Yoga Teacher Certification: Level One.
- This training will review foundational Yin poses and introduce more complex poses and pose set-ups, and also more advanced sequencing and deepening in a Yin practice and class. You will learn advanced modifications and supports in the poses, and will increase your observational and support skills. The advanced use of props and sandbags will be incorporated into the poses, also practice in breath work and breath cueing.
- The Yin yoga practice is targeted at deeper tissues, such as ligaments, joint capsules, bones, and the fascial system. The poses are intended to cause positive stresses on tissues to develop strength, length, and resiliency. It is the opposite to, and an excellent balance for, more Yang styles of yoga which engage the muscles and cardiovascular systems more energetically.
- In this Level Two certification you will learn:
- More advanced principles of Yin practice and Yin poses
- The incorporation of Breath work and mindfulness in poses,
- How to help to engage the client in inward reflection and observation of the body and minds reaction to the pose,
- The concepts of stress and tension as positive forces in the body to prevent fragility of the body and to create length and strength of tissues
- A more advanced evaluation of the intent of each pose, and why it would be selected, including how long should the pose should be held and why
- Techniques to help the student to recognise what they are experiencing in their body
- Anatomy from a Yin perspective: connective tissue: the fascial system; ligaments; tendons; joint capsules
- Identifying tension versus compression in a pose
- Safety considerations in Yin poses - How far is too far?
- Investigation of how anatomical variations express in Yin poses,
- Advanced sequencing of a Yin class
- The importance of sequencing, timing, and continual monitoring
- The use of props and sandbags- how to decide what to use and why
