Join me for a very special offering: a weekend of Yin Yoga, Buddhist meditation, and Yoga Nidra. There is a very very limited amount of space for this training. The spots are few, so please save your place as soon as possible.
This weekend welcomes those that simply seek to deepen their own practice, or seek a personal retreat. This weekend is also very much a comprehensive training developed for serious students and teachers interested in learning the core physical aspects of the practice of Yin Yoga, in order to teach the practice.
YSK Yin and Nidra Training will include:
Core principles of Yin Yoga; how to cue postures and educate students safely
How to artfully sequence Yin postures for maximum myofascial and joint benefits, including targeted sequencing, and counterposes
How to sequence according to Traditional Ayurvedic principles of prana vayus, and how to sequence a guided meditation in Nidra according to the system of koshas
Study of the anatomy and biomechanics of the spine, pelvis, thigh, knee, and shoulder girdle, including considerations for injuries and modification needs
Understand the role and function of fascia, connective tissue, and the vital role it plays in overall health
How to adapt the practice to specific populations and concerns (growing bodies, aging bodies, athletes, stress-relief, sleep-aid, etc)
How to create and promote a Yin class, what to ask, what you will need, what to ask for.
2 sample scripts for Yoga Nidra, and how to build your own script for maximum benefit
An understanding of some common applications for Yoga Nidra in the worlds of education, mental health, and social change.
Students will receive a certificate of training in Yin Yoga and Yoga Nidra from Yoga San Kalpa RYS- YACEP, which is eligible for Continuing Education Credit (50 hours) with the Yoga Alliance. By the end of this weekend - which does include practice teaching - you will have the foundations to teach a complete class in each style, and the resources to begin doing so professionally, if you choose.
