YogaWise Yin Yoga Training with David Kim – Information Session
August 24 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
We are pleased to offer a 45-minute Yin Yoga class, followed by an Information Session and Q&A about David Kim’s upcoming 50-Hour YogaWise Yin Yoga Teacher Training (Details) at The Yoga Room in February 2020. The short class will offer a glimpse of this gently stimulating yet calming practice that helps to balance the nervous system, and cultivate a sense of profound peace. The subsequent Information Session will provide details about the Training’s blend of Yin theory and practice, supported by an anatomical foundation that is both practical and applicable for teachers and students alike. Attendees will be invited to ask questions about the training’s format and content, which covers the essentials of Yin, as well as the beginning foundations of Restorative Yoga. While Yin and Restoratives are very close on the “yin” spectrum – quieting, passive, inward – there are key distinctions between each practice, which we will explore further in the training. Please join us on our “yinward” journey!
*This Yin Yoga Teacher Training is suitable for all yoga teachers and students
Date: 24 August 2019
