50-hr Yin Yoga Teacher Training with David Kim

February 28, 2020 @ 8:30 am - March 8, 2020 @ 5:00 pm

Level 1: Yin Yoga Foundations (30hours)

Date: 28 February – 2 March, 2020 (Friday – Monday)

Time: 8:30am – 5:00pm

Yin Yoga is quickly becoming one of the most influential styles of yoga in the world.  A much-needed counterbalance to Power or Vinyasa styles, Yin exercises our body and mind through longer, passive postures that apply gentle stress to our joint tissues via bodyweight and gravity.

Yin anatomy combines Eastern and Western perspectives by highlighting the unique potential – rather than standardized “norms” — of our bodies.   This course empowers teachers to move beyond rote verbal cues and aesthetically “pretty” poses, by developing a sharper eye for different body types and a more spacious understanding of asana.   We will learn how to develop a meditative classroom space that coaxes students to see beyond their habitual distractions, where most suffering originates.

In this 30-Hour Foundations Course, you will learn:
• Fundamental Yin Yoga Postures, Modifications, and Sequences
• Functional Anatomy Focused on Skeletal Variations, Proportions, and Connective-Tissue Research
• How To Understand Bodies, Instead of Memorizing Poses
• How To Integrate Mindfulness Into Asana and Meditation
• How To Integrate a Yin Approach Into Yang-style classes

 

Level 2: Myofascial Release & Restoratives (20 Hours)

Date: 6-8 March, 2020 (Friday – Sunday)

Time: 8:30am – 5:00pm

This 20-Hour module will introduce the working concept of Myofascial Meridians, and their role in communicating and transmitting stress forces along key longitudinal “tracks” of the body, which directly impact our posture and ease of movement.   We will explore these tracks through the Myofascial-Release technique of ball rolling —  a targeted approach to maintaining the suppleness of our connective tissue and to preventing fascial adhesions.  Ball-rolling is a particularly effective form of both experiential “body-mapping” and self-massage, reinforcing the gentle stimulus cultivated in Yin Yoga.

Moving further along the Yin spectrum, this module will introduce the fundamental principles and techniques of Restorative Yoga, and its profoundly soothing effect on the Nervous System.  We will examine the extensive use of props to completely support and pacify the body, and offer practical examples of how to integrate Restorative postures within the context of a Yin class, while still delineating the different intentions of each system.  Restoratives are particularly effective for both self-practice and private sessions, and offer an underutilized professional opportunity for teachers to diversify their public-class offerings.
