Yin Yoga & Mindfulness Training

Advanced Principles in Yin Yoga,Mindful Practices & Mapping the Subtle Body

A 20hr Yin & Restorative Yoga Teacher Training Intensive 

April 25th-28th 2019



Yin Yoga is a transformative and rejuvenative practice that seeks to mindfully lengthen and lubricate the connective tissues by practicing the methods of stillness, mindfulness, and loving kindness. This practice is an opportunity for neuroplastic molding of the rest and digest function of your brain, empowering practitioners to beckon the brain into a restful and restorative Theta Brain Wave state to increase immunologic function.

Radiating with ritual, this integrated wisdom practice is a tool to rise to your intrinsic baseline of tranquility, recall your innate ability for spaciousness, and remind your system of its unique anatomical, structural, and emotional wholeness.

This training will focus on the cultivation of an enriched Pranic field and an in-depth investigation of Buddhist Philosophical Principles- which we mingle with psychological self-inquiry and awareness practices in Yin Yoga Asanas. This course offers advanced anatomy and physiology, Yin & Yang Posture Clinics/Asana Labs, Restorative Yoga, Neuro-physiology of the Autonomic Nervous System, Traditional Chinese Medicine Meridians, and methods for routine mindfulness. 

We will weave in a special focus on three primary vital centers of the Chinese Meridian system: 

Earth Element | Water Element | Fire Element


Beginners are welcome but a background of interest or experience in mindfulness and some experience in Yoga Asana (yin or yang) is required
