Teaching Yin Yoga Go Within The Practice

SLOW DOWN & RESTORE YOUR ENERGY

If you're a yoga instructor who wants to expand your knowledge of Yin Yoga or a yoga practitioner who simply wants to deepen your understanding of the practice, this program will immerse you in all the ways the practice can rehabilitate and strengthen the body. Learn how the body has an opportunity to stretch toward its complete range of motion when you relax the tissues, fascia, and joints. 

Join Kiesha Battles, Candace Jennings, Arturo Peal, and Raudhah Rahman for a live, online weekend program as they share their experience and knowledge of Yin Yoga and teach you everything you need to know about its physical, mental, and energetic benefits. Through meditation, lecture, discussion, and daily practices, you will examine

  • The history, philosophy, and main poses of Yin Yoga 
  • Accessibility and prop use
  • The Chinese meridian theory  
  • Mindfulness meditation practices 
  • Connective tissue, fascia, and plasticity
  • Principles of teaching myofascial release (MFR) yoga
  • How to build a comprehensive Yin Yoga sequence. 

 Explore the healing power of this deep and rewarding practice.
