Yin yoga offers long held static shapes that allow you to slow down and touch base with your heart and soul. It also has deep philosophical roots in Taoism and Chinese Medicine, which work together to balance the body-mind connection in a holistic way.
Yin yoga has a slow and gentle approach to releasing fascia, the connective tissue that houses the bodies organs and muscles. It stimulates the meridian channels, which in turn brings balance and rejuvenation to the body. Yin cultivates buddhist mindfulness techniques, to lower the nervous systems stress responses, effectively returning the body to its natural equilibrium.
During this 50 hour immersion, you will learn everything you need to know to both practice & teach yin yoga. Clare Lovelace has been running this course around Australia for the past 5 years. Her teaching methodology offers a safe, accessible and informed approach to some of the more detailed aspects of the curriculum, such as Buddhism, Mindfulness, Traditional Chinese Medicine, anatomy and physiology.
This 50 hour module is the perfect bridge from a 200 hour/350hour Hatha Vinyasa training which is registered with both the Yoga Alliance and Yoga Australia. This training takes place in the heart of one of Sydney’s most vibrant and eclectic suburbs Erskinville, full of cafe’s and artisan foods, right next door to the beautiful Sydney Park.
This course is open to anyone that wishes to learn more about the mystery and science of Yin yoga. If you are a complete beginner and would like to deepen your own practice and enquiry, you are welcome to join this training. You don’t have to be a yoga teacher to join this course.
