Yin yoga emphasizes the deeper tissues of the hips, thighs, pelvis and lower spine, whereas a yang practice emphasizes the muscles and circulatory system, leaving one alert and refreshed. Once the body is prepared and energetically balanced through asana practice, the focus turns to achieving steadiness of mind through conscious breath control and meditative awareness.
In this course you will develop a deeper understanding of the concepts and benefits of Yin Yoga and be able to design a Yin/ Yang class to suit beginners and more advanced practitioners. In addition, you will develop a basic understanding of the energetic meridian and chakra systems, as well as practice pranayama and meditation techniques.
It is an essential pre-requisite that you have completed the ‘Introduction to Yin Yoga Training & Practice (Level 1)’ prior to attending this training.
