There is a secret cloak of the sacred which ensheathes the beachfront town of Tulum, and we have chosen this potent portal on the full moon of spring break 2018 to hold our annual 5 Elements Yin Yoga Teacher Training, where you will integrate the foundations of Yin Yoga Philosophy, Anatomy & Alignment, Chinese Meridian Theory, and the 5 Elements to learn to safely and effectively teaching Yin Yoga. Emphasizing Buddhist practices of equanimity and loving kindness, you will learn to use your authentic voice as an emerging Yin Yoga teacher and guide unique sequencing in the sacred art of restoration.
Yin Yoga is a practice that seeks to mindfully lengthen and lubricate the connective tissues and approach Equanimity in the subtle and emotional body. Practicing the methods of stillness, mindfulness, and loving kindness, Yin Yoga empowers practitioners to coax Prana into particular healing and rejuvenative pathways.
Teaching Yin Yoga is a divine practice for deep healing, and the mounting need to offer such practices grows more vividly each day. Spend a divine week on the beach learning to teach Yin Yoga, alongside daily Yang (Vinyasa & Iyengar) and Pranayama practices, meditation, learning the Art of Adjustments, the Sensual Science of Sequencing, and more.
Noble Silence & Our Daily Ritual Each day will begin with a Noble Silence practice, where we will integrate Vipasana style meditation, Yang Vinyasa, Iyengar, and Pranayama to awaken and enrich inner life. We will remain in silence through breakfast, after which we will break silence with learning modules crafted to deepen your own relationship to Yoga & Chakra Theory, Asana & Alignment, Buddhist + 8 Limb Yoga Philosophy, Meridians, Sequencing & Adjustments, and more. After lunch we will dive into each of the 5 Elements, and embody the practice through guided Yin sequencing of each element. Cooking classes, Yoga Nidras, Restorative Practices, and Teaching Practicums will be segmented throughout the evenings.
This Yin Intensive training is a potent addition to integrate components of Yin and Restorative Yoga into your own daily practice and into the yoga studios. We encourage seasoned yoga facilitators as well as emerging and brand new students who wish to deepen their own practice or begin teaching and sharing the essential practice of Yin Yoga with others. Come to Tulum to learn to teach Yin Yoga!
