Yin Yoga Immersions

Yin Yoga Immersion Level 1 & 2 

These immersion courses provide the basis for a solid grounding in Ashtanga and Yin Yoga practice, teaching and theory. Each course follows the standards set out by the Yoga Alliance in each of the 5 educational categories; Techniques, Training and Practice, Anatomy and Physiology, Philosophy & Ethical Practices, Teaching Methodology, Practicum along with a final assessment weekend. 

These intensive immersions are for yoga teachers and dedicated students. Each immersion consists of 50 hours of intense training and can be taken as stand alone courses. If all immersions are successfully completed along with a final weekend intensive and assessment the student will receive their 200 Hour Yoga Alliance Certificate which will enable them to register with Yoga Alliance USA as a Registered Yoga Teacher.

Each immersion consists of 45 contact hours with an additional 5 + hours of home study. You will receive a certificate of completion at the end of the course which can be used as YACEP hours.

The course is taught via; lectures, asana practice, observing and assisting in the Shala, home study, reading and assignments along with establishing a home practice.

Yin Yoga Immersion for both Level 1 & 2 - The other portion of yoga practice
(The immersion will be split into 2 courses, levels 1 and 2, each spread over 3 weekends.)

Here you will learn the elements of all things yin; philosophy, variable anatomy, asana, teaching practices, theory and much more. This is an opportunity to understand the complexities of Yin yoga and the body.

This is a comprehensive 100 hour training course split into two 50 hour immersions. The course forms part of the 200hr yoga teacher training and is also available as stand alone 50hr immersions for teachers and dedicated students.

In the first module we will cover the basics of all things Yin; history, principles, philosophy, practice, variable anatomy, tension vs compression, yin/yang relativity and its relationship to the body and practice, but most importantly how to safely practice and teach these poses. Yin is different in that it requires 'a hold time' this hold time is dependent upon many different variables - including anatomical variables.

In each immersion we will cover all of these topics - the first will give you an opportunity to gain a firm foundational knowledge of how Yin works on the physical body and how to teach it safely and effectively. The second immersion will take this several steps deeper and we will explore anatomy and variation on a more complex level along with the energetics of the practice and its effects.  We will also cover class sequencing - how to sequence for different bodies, when to offer alternatives, how to prop the body and when to use props, as well as sequencing for a yin/yang classes.

The immersion is also to help build your understanding and confidence in your anatomical understanding of yoga poses and how yoga works, so that when a student is struggling or has questions you will feel confident in your knowledge of the body and can offer safe and effective alternatives some of which are perhaps outside the normal scope of what is classed as a classic Yin posture.
