For an embodied experience of the theory behind the practice, students will have the opportunity to teach from the second week onwards. Stretched over 4 weeks there is time to practice teaching and the student will leave this training feeling confident to lead a yin yoga therapy class.
Yin Yoga waves all layers of our being -body, energy and mind- into a seamless whole, allowing a sublime experience of stillness and peace. The stillness of the long-held static stretches with relaxed muscles in Yin Yoga allows the space for awareness and the opportunity to reveal and release deep layers of tension held within your fascia.
Yin Yoga Therapy also explains you ways to emotional healing and the releasing of energetic blockages in the poses. As we put our bodies in certain positions different meridian energy streams get stimulated and we activate our body’s own healing powers. The healing wisdom of the Daoist philosophy and the Meridians provides insight and guidance for your practice and your teaching.
You will get to know all the basics of a classical 200hrs yoga teacher training and embark on a journey through all the Taoist elements and their healing wisdom, learn about the ancient tradition of the Acupuncture Meridians and Chi flow in the body. Find out more about their subconscious value and the applied body acupressure points and Yin Yoga poses to help balance those.
When you awaken and align your body’s underlying energy, you activate your innate process of healing and transformation. Yin Yoga will help you create profound shifts in your physical and emotional well-being through the subtle body.
Yin Yoga Therapy will demystify how energy affects everything you do and feel—and show you how to work with your body and mind. Energy work isn’t as esoteric as you may think. You will learn simple principles, tools, and practices that balance your subtle body—which is how physical, emotional and spiritual healing begins—so you can build vitality, unravel energetic blockages, and boost your immunity. By the end of this course, you will feel stronger, healthier, and better able to thrive and flow in the life you are meant to live.
You will get to know more about additional tools and different meditation techniques to support this process. Yin Yoga Therapy offers you insight into the power of visualization and breath, Yoga Nidra, Mantras, Mudras and Chakras. There will be different meditations, acupuncture healing sessions, and chanting circles.
To complete a basic understanding of yoga in all its variations you will look into the anatomy of the muscular and skeletal body, in the Ayurvedic Dosha system and share different aspects of yoga philosophy and foundations like the eight limbs and Patanjali's yoga sutras.
In our Circles of Transformation, we create a safe space to connect and share. Together we open the gates to a long-lasting transformation.
The Body-Mind-Soul Centre sees teaching yoga as an art fuelled by authenticity and creativity. A student's personal practice and the understanding that follows spark the inner teacher and sharing with others will come naturally and spontaneously.
In a Taoist / Zen way, we emphasize the value of breath, meditation, and intuition rather than ritual worship or rigorous following of old scriptures and perfect alignments. It matters how it feels much more than how it is supposed to look.
The Body-Mind-Soul Centre acknowledges that every student and teacher has his or her own unique presence, energy, and teaching style. The Body-Mind-Soul Centre provides an ideal environment for learning and a practice process, where yoga teacher training courses are presented and practiced in depth.
The Body-Mind-Soul Centre is an RYS registered school with Yoga Alliance and is honored to collaborate with teachers from a wonderful diverse and experienced background.
The aim is to apply the teachings and practices of the yoga tradition to go on an exploration to investigate the relationship of our body, mind, and soul. Ultimately to gain clarity, to understand our nature, to create harmony between us and others and to experience freedom and joy. In a Taoist / Zen way, the teachings emphasize the value of breath, meditation, and intuition rather than traditional worship or rigorous following of old scriptures and perfect alignments. We see teaching yoga as an art fuelled by authenticity and creativity.
