yin yoga + mindfulness meditation teacher training
with Sarah Lo
28 January – 31 January 2020
This four-day yin yoga teacher training cover the key fundamentals of learning yin yoga sequences for the yin-yang organ pairs of the Chinese meridian system – and integrate them with the foundations of mindfulness.
This training is a deep immersion for both teachers and dedicated students or professionals in related fields and has an almost retreat like feel with led and self-led meditation, enquiry and interpersonal enquiry as well as yin yoga practices each day.
Enhancing your skills to teach yin yoga sequences for the yin-yang organ pairs begins with greater understanding. In particular, understanding the unique skeletal structure of hip anatomy and also the practice of listening to the subtle feedback our bodies constantly provide. With mindfulness and clearer seeing, it is also important to keep our visions in view to move towards a more transformative life.
