20-hour Yin Yoga Training ~ Deep Dive into Meridians
Together with the Fleurieu-based acupuncturist and Chinese medicine practitioner Paige Olsen (you can find her at All About Health), we have developed a unique training. It’s designed for those who want to get a firm grasp of Yin Yoga’s traditional Chinese roots in combination with an understanding of the modern view on fascial continuity.
If you are a yoga teacher who has completed a Yin training, you have no doubt discovered that there is much more to energy meridians than knowing the pathway. This training gives you the opportunity to truly dive into the energetics of the energy channels and the organ systems. With these insights, you deepen your own practice and that of your students.
You do not need to be a yoga teacher to join this course. For Yin Yoga aficionados or those interested in learning more about acupuncture and its holistic approach, this course is a fun, practical and hands-on experience.
During this course you gain some in-depth knowledge of the Chinese energy meridian system and how to apply this to the Yin Yoga practice.
The first two theory sessions introduce the foundational principles of Chinese Medicine and the modern concept of fascial meridians. We discuss concepts such as Yin Yang theory, Qi & blood, the five elements and the 12 primary meridians as well as the recent discoveries around fascia and anatomy trains. A presentation about the origin and philosophy of Yin Yoga is also part of the first weekend.
In each of the five remaining sessions, we discuss a pair of primary meridians following the cosmological order of the elements (Water, Fire, Wood, Metal, Earth). We explore the related anatomy trains and show how you can effectively release tightness in those layers of omnipresent connective tissues. You learn which Yin poses are effective and discover important acupressure points. The sessions include practical and interactive activities.
The 90-minute masterclass following each theory session is for you to truly experience the power of Yin Yoga and to put into practice what you have learned during the session. Each class is designed around the element and meridian pair discussed in the morning. The effect of each practice can be quite intense and we encourage you to be open to any sensation, physical, mental or emotional that comes up.
We don’t send you home before serving you a nutritious snack and warming herbal brew.
