Within Taoism, the idea is that the opposite expressions of Yin and Yang need each other to create and maintain balance. The one does not exclude the other.
WHAT YOU WILL LEARN
During this continuing education, we go deeper into the concept of Yin Yoga and study the energetic impact of this practice on the body from an eastern perspective, based on traditional Chinese medicine and philosophy. We build on our knowledge from the foundation course and apply modern meridian theory and five element theory to our Yin Yoga practice. We practice Yin Yoga in combination with Yang sequences based on Qigong, as well as learn an Assisted Yin Yoga sequence to immerse ourselves in the therapeutic parts of Yin Yoga.
The education is aimed at those who already have a foundation training in Yin Yoga (50 hours minimum) who long for further deepening studies.
After completing education, you have additional tools to develop your role as Yin Yoga teacher and feel more secure in teaching Yin Yoga both from a functional, therapeutic and philosophical perspective.
