YogaShe 100 hours Yin yoga teacher training is fully designed for those who would like to understand deeply the art of Yin yoga and become a professional Yin yoga teacher. It has 4 parts:

1- Basic TCM and Yin Yang organs

The Huangdi Neijing (given the title The Yellow Emperor’s Classic of Medicine in one of the latest translations) is an ancient treatise on health and disease said to have been written by the famous Chinese emperor Huangdi around 2600 BC. The key to a long healthy life is to follow the Tao, the natural way of the universe. Health and illness are caused by an imbalance of the two basic forces, yin and yang, and by the influence of the five elements (water, fire, metal, wood, and earth) on the organs of the body. Therefore, understanding our element will help to have a guideline for our life.

In this course, we will introducing TCM 5 element theory and the relation with our organs. Understanding how yin yoga helps us to build flexibility and mobility.

Also the ideology of Taoism, 24-Solar and the concept of Yin & Yang. Techniques include: self-observation for our body and breathe, living with 24-Solar and enhancing our health with nature and proper diet, knowledge of acupuncture points and self-massages.

2- Meridiens and Yin yoga postures

We will deep dive into the 14 meridians and our biological clock. Knowing how to follow the seasonal guideline in order to enhance our wellness. Understand the limits in every nature.

Students will understand the flow of Qi by practicing with pranayama, yin & yang yoga, and visualizing or diversifying our energy during the practice. 

Also we will practice with intention and attention. Learning the major principles of yin yoga and asanas. The benefit of each pose and effect. Understanding the reality of the human body and mind. Slowly develop mindfulness into our yoga practice and outside of the yoga mat. Cultivate the ability to listen to our body and ourself and be non judgemental.

3- Fascias and its relation to Yin yoga

Students will learn the idea of fascia and the function of our fascia. In the course, we will introduce the 12 specific fascial lines and their relation with mobility; the connective tissues and how yin yoga practice can help to release the tension.

The fascia includes everything that presumes the presence of collagen/connective tissue or from which it is derived. All the tissue considered as “specialized connective tissue” of mesodermal derivation are inserted into the fascial system. These include blood, bone, cartilage, adipose tissue, hematopoietic tissue, and lymphatic tissue. The fascial system has no discontinuity in its path, with layers of different characteristics and properties overlapping.

We will cooperate with the knowledge of fascia and Yin yoga asana to explore our body movement. Normal movement of the body is allowed because of the presence of the fascial tissues and their inseparable interconnection, which allow the sliding of the muscular structure, the sliding of nerves and vessels between contractile fields and joints, and the ability of all organs to slide and move with each other as influenced by the position of the body. One of the fundamental characteristics of the fascia is the ability to adapt to mechanical stress, remodeling the cellular/tissue structure and mirroring the functional necessity of the environment where the tissue lays.

4- Art of teaching Yin yoga

We don’t use the body to get into a pose- we use the pose to get into the body. When the practitioner starts to judge the pose by what it looks like rather than what it feels like, then the intention of optimizing health is lost. Therefore the challenge in yin yoga is to find what’s the best for you, and if you are feeling it, then you are doing it. The key is to let go of our ego, avoid injury and discover the guideline that works the best for us. And using this method to inspire your students.

Knowing one’s limits and being able to connect with your own body are the key during our practice. To be able to connect with your body and yourself, you would need to dive in and be persistent with your observations. Throughout the practice, we are not only learning how to connect with ourselves, but also to be able to feel any sensation from your body and mind.

Alignment is personal, not universal. Knowing the tension is not always due to physical constraints but can be psychological as well as biological. We will also learn resistance & compression, stretch vs. stress. The difference between yin and yang practice. We tighten our muscles to protect our joints (yang). We relax our muscles so we can exercise our joints (yin).
