Yin Yoga & Anatomy Teacher Training I - Flying Yogi Hamburg
(in German)

“Wherever you go, go with all your heart.” (Confucius)

In this 6 day certified Level I (50 hour) training of our 200 hour Yin Yoga & Anatomy Teacher Training programme, we not only learn the 20 basic yin yoga poses in theory and in practice, we also discover a sense of security when teaching, through developing an anatomical understanding of skeletal variation.

We learn to employ the 7 point analysis principle to understand each yoga pose as well as the individual and unique bodies of not only ourselves but also our students. In turn this enables us to offer logical assists and variations.  Anatomy is the key. 

Welcome to Yin Yoga Teacher Training I
This 50-hour intensive yoga teaching programme (6 days) comprises 4 sections:


1. Yin Yoga Asanas

This section covers the theory and practice for teaching 20 yin yoga poses, including their specific characteristics and their effects.


2. Anatomy is the Key

Anatomical understanding of not only the individual bone structure but also the muscular, connective, fascial and ligament tissues is an essential prerequisite for an effective yoga teacher.
 

3. 7-Point Analysing Principle for Assists - Theory

The Yin Yoga and Anatomy Teacher Training programme focuses less on teaching set assists and much more on introducing a 7-point analysis principle, which you can then use for every known yoga pose and for each individual student.


4. 7-Point Analysing Principle - Practical Tests

In the Yin Yoga and Anatomy Teacher Training programme, we’ll study and apply a series of practical tests for analysing the bone structure, compression and tension of our students.  We will have the opportunity to learn – in a safe environment – to read a human being, to sense our own limitations and to test and recognise those of others.  Eventually, with the benefit of myriad insights and enhanced self-awareness, we will be able to assess the needs and limitations of any individual student.

The foundation has been laid.

This training is suitable for already certified and aspiring yoga teachers as well as dedicated yoga students, who wish for a deeper understanding of Yin Yoga and Yoga Anatomy for their teaching and/or own practice.

On successful completion of all assignments and 100% attendance of this training, students will be awarded a Yoga Alliance 50 hour certificate which can be counted towards our 200 hour Yin Therapy Yin Yoga & Anatomy Teacher Training programme or Continuing Education hours with Yoga Alliance registered teachers.

Yin Yoga & Anatomy Teacher Training II (German) - Hamburg, Germany

Yin Yoga & Anatomy Teacher Training II - Flying Yogi Hamburg
(in German)

"Tell me, and I will forget. Show me, and I may remember. Involve me, and I will understand." (Confucius)

Confucius’ saying reflects the emphasis of this particular Yin Yoga Teacher Training where the focus is on sensing, feeling, experiencing the yin yoga practice and the unique anatomy of our individual bone structure for ourselves.  You will be analysing yourselves and each other, conducting passive assists as well as experiencing compression and tension amongst your fellow students.  Through this very much hands on, practical approach your knowledge and understanding will be increased tenfold.


Welcome to Yin Yoga Teacher Training II
This 50-hour intensive certified yoga teaching programme (6 days) comprises 6 sections:

1. Yin Yoga Asanas

In this continuance of our yin yoga teacher training programme, we concentrate mainly on the 9 awareness points of functional yoga.


2. Anatomy is the Key

As well as analysing compression, we’ll study the tension of the muscular and fascial tissues and the effect of these on the asana practice.  This will allow us to offer our students logical assists.


3. 7-Point Analysing Principle for Assists - Theory

In this section of the training schedule, we’ll improve our knowledge of the 7-point analysis principle.
 

4. Application of the 7-Point Analysing Principle – Tests and Analysis of Assists/Adjustments

In this element of the training programme, we’ll focus on applying the 7-point analysis principle for assists and – working with the student – study ways of analysing yoga poses on the basis of compression and tension, orientation of the joints, and proportions.

To do this, we’ll learn tests from the Yin Yoga and Anatomy Teacher Training I programme then apply them to our fellow students.

One special feature of this series of tests will be analysing a shoulder stand in detail. This is a sneak preview for the Yin Yoga and Anatomy Teacher Training level III programme, where we’ll focus on the upper body and extremities.


5. Passive Assists

In section 5 we learn passive, hand-on assists.
 

6. Yin Therapy - The Therapeutic Benefits of Yin Yoga

In YYTT II, we establish a basic understanding of how – using Yin Therapy's approach – we can employ the therapeutic elements of Yin Yoga to support our students’ individual and specific physical and emotional issues.

According to statistics, 25% of the yoga students who come to us took up yoga originally precisely because they have these specific problems.
 

Students must have completed our Yin Yoga and Anatomy Teacher Training I programme to be able to participate in the Yin Yoga and Anatomy Teacher Training II programme.

On successful completion of all assignments and 100% attendance of this training, students will be awarded a Yoga Alliance 50 hour certificate which can be counted towards our 200 hour Yin Therapy Yin Yoga & Anatomy Teacher Training programme or Continuing Education hours with Yoga Alliance registered teachers.

Yin Yoga & Anatomy Teacher Training III - Golden Yogi, Auckland
(in English)

"A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step." (Lao-tzu)

You have already completed many steps along your personal and unique Yin Yoga & Anatomy journey.

In this teacher training we complete the yin yoga practice and yoga anatomy theory, in that we focus on the individual bone structure, muscles and facial chains of the upper body and discover the implications to our yin and yang yoga practice with the aid of many tests, analysis, variations and therapeutic suggestions e.g. shoulder neck pain.
 

Welcome to Yin Yoga & Anatomy Teacher Training III
This 50-hour certified intensive yoga teaching programme (6 days) comprises 5 sections:

1. Yin Yoga Asanas

In this yin yoga teacher training course, we concentrate on the upper body eg. shoulder, scapula, shoulder/neck, wrists and as in level II, on the many variations of relevant poses. Furthermore, with special exercises, we begin to discover, experience and differentiate between blood, breath, nerves and chi flow within our own bodies.


2. Blood, Nerves, Breath, Chi

Heartbeat, blood circulation, nerve impulses, breath circulation are fluctuations within the body that can distract one's ability to sense the underlying chi flow and can often be misinterpreted by many experienced yoga students and teachers for the chi flow eg. blood circulation for chi flow.

We delve into the anatomical function of the blood, nerves breath and clarify with practical exercises, how to consciously feel blood, nerves, breath to enable us to place these sensations to the periphery.

What remains is chi.


3. Energy, Mantras & Philosophy

In this module, we begin our journey into energy work, mantras & yoga philosophy and slowly become familiar with the teachings of reincarnation, karma, the 3 realms, Patanjali's sutras, tantric chakra teachings, nadis (meridian theory) & mantra work.

Here is where we discover the key to our true spiritual growth.
 

4. Upper Body Anatomy - Analyse, Tests & Passive Assists

In YYTT III, we learn the muscle groups of the upper body, their function and explore in detail various aspects eg. rotator cuff, scapula etc.

We analyse compression and tension of the shoulder joint and explain and show it's relevance to yang yoga asanas (Downward Facing Dog, Warrior), to demonstrate how individual bone structure not only limits and affects our Yin Yoga asana practice.


5. Yin Therapy

In YYTT II, we established a fundamental understanding of how Yin Yoga can enhance and restore balance for ourselves and our students from a physical and mental aspect.

In YYTT III, we delve deeper.

Students must have completed Yin Therapy's YYTT I and II courses to be eligible to participate in this YYTT III.

On successful completion of all assignments and 100% attendance of this training, students will be awarded a Yoga Alliance 50 hour certificate which can be counted towards our 200 hour Yin Therapy Yin Yoga & Anatomy Teacher Training programme or Continuing Education hours with Yoga Alliance registered teachers.

Yin Yoga & Anatomy Workshop (English) - Nelson, New Zealand

Yin Yoga & Yoga Anatomy Workshop with Studio Evolve, Nelson (in English)

“Wherever you go, go with all your heart.” (Confucius)

Yin yoga is one of the calmest and most relaxing forms of yoga in the world, consisting of a series of passive poses of the body.

By means of long-held stretches (3–5 minutes) without muscle tension, we focus on the deep connective, fascial and ligamental tissues – stimulating, strengthening and stretching the tissues.

We mobilise the joints, and stimulate and calm the nervous system, thereby reducing stress and encouraging regeneration.

During the practice we temporarily slow down the flow of Chi energy, enabling the revitalising energy to accumulate and then flow more freely on conclusion of the practice.

Indeed for days after a yin yoga practice, we’ll feel blissfully relaxed and recharged.

Both workshops are suitable for yoga teachers and also yoga students wishing to learn more about yin yoga and yoga anatomy.

2. Anatomy is the Key

As well as analysing compression, we’ll study the tension of the muscular and fascial tissues and the effect of these on the asana practice.  This will allow us to offer our students logical assists.


3. 7-Point Analysing Principle for Assists - Theory

In this section of the training schedule, we’ll improve our knowledge of the 7-point analysis principle.
 

4. Application of the 7-Point Analysing Principle – Tests and Analysis of Assists/Adjustments

In this element of the training programme, we’ll focus on applying the 7-point analysis principle for assists and – working with the student – study ways of analysing yoga poses on the basis of compression and tension, orientation of the joints, and proportions.

To do this, we’ll learn tests from the Yin Yoga and Anatomy Teacher Training I programme then apply them to our fellow students.

One special feature of this series of tests will be analysing a shoulder stand in detail. This is a sneak preview for the Yin Yoga and Anatomy Teacher Training level III programme, where we’ll focus on the upper body and extremities.


5. Passive Assists

In section 5 we learn passive, hand-on assists.


6. Yin Therapy - the therapeutic benefits of Yin Yoga

In YYTT II, we establish a basic understanding of how – using Yin Therapy's approach – we can employ the therapeutic elements of Yin Yoga to support our students’ individual and specific physical and emotional issues.

According to statistics, 25% of the yoga students who come to us took up yoga originally precisely because they have these specific problems.


Students must have completed Yin Therapy's Yin Yoga and Anatomy Teacher Training I course to be able to participate in Yin Yoga and Anatomy Teacher Training II.

This level II training is a certified stand-alone teacher training and is also the second of four modules that together make up Yin Therapy’s 200hour Yin Yoga & Anatomy Teacher Training.

On successful completion of all assignments and 100% attendance you will be awarded a 50 hour Yin Yoga & Anatomy Teacher Training certificate which may be counted towards our Yoga Alliance internationally recognised 200hr Yin Yoga & Anatomy Teacher Training certificate or recognised as continuing education hours for Yoga Alliance registered yoga teachers.

Yin Yoga & Anatomy Workshop (German) - Frankfurt, Germany

Yin Yoga & Anatomy Workshop at Inside Yoga, Frankfurt
(in German)

“Wherever you go, go with all your heart.” (Confucius)

Yin yoga is one of the calmest and most relaxing forms of yoga in the world, consisting of a series of passive poses of the body.

By means of long-held stretches (3–5 minutes) without muscle tension, we focus on the deep connective, fascial and ligamental tissues – stimulating, strengthening and stretching the tissues.

We mobilise the joints, and stimulate and calm the nervous system, thereby reducing stress and encouraging regeneration.

During the practice we temporarily slow down the flow of Chi energy, enabling the revitalising energy to accumulate and then flow more freely on conclusion of the practice.

Indeed for days after a yin yoga practice, we’ll feel blissfully relaxed and recharged.

Depending on the length of the workshop, either all or only certain themes of Yin Yoga and Anatomy theory – as listed below – will be discussed.
Depending on the length of the workshop, either all or only a selection of Yin Yoga and Anatomy listed below will be practiced.

All workshops are suitable for yoga teachers and also yoga students wishing to learn more about yin yoga and yoga anatomy.
 

Workshop I - Yin Yoga

Theory:

  • What is yin yoga?
  • What is yang yoga?
  • What are the advantages of each kind of yoga?
  • How do they complement each other?
  • What is tension and what is compression?
  • What is the function of our connective tissue/fascia in this practice?
  • Stress and back pain, and yin yoga as a “therapeutic touch”

Practice:

  • Yin yoga class /classes (Paul Grilley style)
    Focus: hip opener or back class

Course instructor: Markus Henning Giess


Workshop II - Yoga Anatomy

Theory:

  • Skeletal variation
  • Function/aesthetics
  • Compression and tension
  • Analysis of a yoga pose

Practice:

Skeletal variation tests and practical consequences for yang yoga asanas and assists – such as lotus, shoulder stand, pigeon, down dog, warrior, etc.

We’ll analyse the following asanas in detail:

  • Lotus position        - external rotation of the hip joint
  • Reclining hero       -  internal rotation of the hip joint
  • Shoulderstand       - neck, shoulder, collarbone and shoulder blade

We'll discuss the following issues:

  • What restrictions does my individual bone structure impose on me?
  • How different is it from other people’s bone structure?
  • Will I or my students ever manage to get into the lotus position or achieve a “perfect” pigeon, etc?
  • Where are the areas of compression and tension within my individual bone structure? How do I deal with it?
  • How can I stretch and stimulate the tissues, when compression is constricting me?
  • What is the physical function of a yoga pose?

Schedule
9:00am – 12.00pm & 1pm - 4pm

Fee
One session: €60
Both sessions: €105

Yin Yoga & Anatomy Teacher Training III - Inside Yoga Frankfurt
(in German)

"A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step." (Lao-tzu)

You have already completed many steps along your personal and unique Yin Yoga & Anatomy journey.

In this teacher training we complete the yin yoga practice and yoga anatomy theory, in that we focus on the individual bone structure, muscles and facial chains of the upper body and discover the implications to our yin and yang yoga practice with the aid of many tests, analysis, variations and therapeutic suggestions e.g. shoulder neck pain.
 

Welcome to Yin Yoga & Anatomy Teacher Training III
This 50-hour certified intensive yoga teaching programme (6 days) comprises 5 sections:

1. Yin Yoga Asanas

In this yin yoga teacher training course, we concentrate on the upper body eg. shoulder, scapula, shoulder/neck, wrists and as in level II, on the many variations of relevant poses. Furthermore, with special exercises, we begin to discover, experience and differentiate between blood, breath, nerves and chi flow within our own bodies.


2. Blood, Nerves, Breath, Chi

Heartbeat, blood circulation, nerve impulses, breath circulation are fluctuations within the body that can distract one's ability to sense the underlying chi flow and can often be misinterpreted by many experienced yoga students and teachers for the chi flow eg. blood circulation for chi flow.

We delve into the anatomical function of the blood, nerves breath and clarify with practical exercises, how to consciously feel blood, nerves, breath to enable us to place these sensations to the periphery.

What remains is chi.


3. Energy, Mantras & Philosophy

In this module, we begin our journey into energy work, mantras & yoga philosophy and slowly become familiar with the teachings of reincarnation, karma, the 3 realms, Patanjali's sutras, tantric chakra teachings, nadis (meridian theory) & mantra work.

Here is where we discover the key to our true spiritual growth.
 

4. Upper Body Anatomy - Analyse, Tests & Passive Assists

In YYTT III, we learn the muscle groups of the upper body, their function and explore in detail various aspects eg. rotator cuff, scapula etc.

We analyse compression and tension of the shoulder joint and explain and show it's relevance to yang yoga asanas (Downward Facing Dog, Warrior), to demonstrate how individual bone structure not only limits and affects our Yin Yoga asana practice.


5. Yin Therapy

In YYTT II, we established a fundamental understanding of how Yin Yoga can enhance and restore balance for ourselves and our students from a physical and mental aspect.

In YYTT III, we delve deeper.

Students must have completed Yin Therapy's YYTT I and II courses to be eligible to participate in this YYTT III.

On successful completion of all assignments and 100% attendance of this training, students will be awarded a Yoga Alliance 50 hour certificate which can be counted towards our 200 hour Yin Therapy Yin Yoga & Anatomy Teacher Training programme or Continuing Education hours with Yoga Alliance registered teachers.

Yin Yoga & Anatomy Teacher Training IV (German) - Taunus (near Wiesbaden), Germany
May
20
to May 26

Yin Yoga & Anatomy Teacher Training IV (German) - Taunus (near Wiesbaden), Germany

  • Seminarhaus Sampurna (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Yin Yoga & Anatomy Teacher Training IV -
(in German)

"Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life." (Confucius)

When one arrives, we feel, as yin yoga practitioners and teachers that it is no longer work,
but rather a gift.

Through the previous training levels, we have enough knowledge under our anatomy belts to understand and sense the more refined energy work of the meridians and to explore the implications for our own practice and that of our students.

The desire is for the energy – internally and externally – to be tangible for each and every student, so that our teaching becomes authentic and not only theoretical.

Furthermore, besides delving into yoga philosophy and the theory of energy work you can expect to be taken on a very personal, energetic and emotional journey this week with much yin yoga, meditation and pranayama practice.

The intention of this course – the middle way (Buddha's teaching)  the journey inwards  – the journey to our essence.

This 50 hour intensive programme IV is created for all yoga teachers who wish to delve deeper into Yin Yoga - the quiet practice and increase their knowledge on the anatomic and energetic theories of the practice.
 

Welcome to Yin Yoga & Anatomy Teacher Training IV
This 50-hour certified intensive yoga teaching programme (6 days) comprises 6 sections:

1. Yin Yoga Asanas

In this continuance of our yin yoga teacher training programme, we concentrate mainly on the chakras and meridians of our bodies.  For asana practice, this means learning to be aware of the subtle chi (energy) flow in the meridians, and to feel its effects on the balance of both body and mind.
 

2. Yoga Philosophy

In the yoga philosophy section, we study the ultimate goal of practising yoga. To do this, we look to Patanjali and his first four yoga sutras, and embark on the eightfold path.

The main questions that we will address are:

  • What is yoga?
  • What is the path of yoga?
     

3. Chakras and Meridian Theory

In this section, we examine chakra theory as the energy centre of our body and discover the sense and power of practising chakra meditation on the spiritual path to enlightenment.

We’ll also cover meridian theory.

In the physical body, we know about the role of bioelectrical flow (nerves) and chemical flow (hormones) as a natural source of power and energy for the body.  In chakra and meridian theory, chi represents the highest authority at a physical level, coordinating both the bioelectrical and the chemical flow in the body and supplying it with energy.

If chi is flowing, we are healthy.  If chi is not flowing, we become ill.

Through yin yoga, pranayama and meditation, we move chi and achieve balance in the body and mind.
 

4. Theory – Meditation, Bandhas, Pranayama and Anatomy

Teaching the theory of meditation (dharana – concentration / dhyana – seeing what is), bandhas (locks), pranayama (breath control), pratahara (looking inwards and conducting energy to the spinal column) and the anatomy associated with it is as fascinating as it is exhilarating.

In addition, we compare it with classical Buddhist meditation practice and universal meditation, philosophy and theory.
 

5. Practice – Meditation, Bandhas, Pranayama and Anatomy

Fully conversant with the theory of meditation, we are now ready to move on to meditation practice.

Each day, we will focus intensively on a theme as we practise:

  •  Universal meditation
  • Chakra meditation over two days
  • Bandha meditation
  • Pranayama exercises
  • Pratyahara exercises
  • Shushumna purification   

This practice offers an insight into and provides a taster of the Yin Therapy Meditation Training.
The Yin Therapy Meditation Programme (100 hours) can lead to an extremely profound personal experience and transformation.
 

6. Yin Therapy

In this section we turn our attention to creating a more extensive picture of energy and holistic healing in the body.
During this module, we will explore various theories and find the connection between them.

At the heart of this third Yin Therapy module lie:

  • Theory of Universal meditation – thought, emotion, reaction
  • Fascial research results in conjunction with the new meridian theory
  • Dr Motoyama’s perspective on chakras, meridians and healing
  • Quantum physics
  • Brain research with regard to meditation
  • Various therapeutic energy methods:
  • Reiki
  • Thai massage
  • Shiatsu

Students must have successfully completed our YYTTI - III courses before participating in this YYTTIV course.

This level IV training is a certified stand-alone teacher training and is also the last of four modules that together make up Yin Therapy’s 200hour Yin Yoga & Anatomy Teacher Training.

On successful completion of levels I - IV, students will be awarded a Yoga Alliance 200 hour Yin Therapy Yin Yoga & Anatomy Teacher Training certificate or a 50 hour certificate towards Continuing Education with Yoga Alliance.

Yin Yoga & Anatomy Teacher Training I - Flying Masters, Melbourne
(in English)

“Wherever you go, go with all your heart.” (Confucius)

In this 6 day/50 hour certified Level I course of our 200 hour Yin Yoga & Anatomy Teacher Training, we not only learn the 20 basic yin yoga poses in theory and in practice, we also discover a sense of security when teaching, through developing an anatomical understanding of skeletal variation.

We learn to employ the 7 point analysis principle to understand each yoga pose as well as the individual and unique bodies of not only ourselves but also our students. In turn this enables us to offer logical assists and variations.  Anatomy is the key.
 

Welcome to Yin Yoga & Anatomy Teacher Training I
This 50-hour intensive yoga teaching programme (6 days) comprises 4 sections:

1. Yin Yoga asanas

This section covers the theory and practice for teaching 20 yin yoga poses, including their specific characteristics and their effects.


2. Anatomy is the key

Anatomical understanding of not only the individual bone structure but also the muscular, connective, fascial and ligament tissues is an essential prerequisite for an effective yoga teacher.
 

3. 7-point analysis principle for assists - theory

This Yin Yoga and Anatomy Teacher Training focuses less on teaching set assists and much more on introducing a 7-point analysis principle, which you can then use for every known yoga pose and for each individual student.


4. 7-point analysis principle - practical tests

In the Yin Yoga and Anatomy Teacher Training, we’ll study and apply a series of practical tests for analysing the bone structure, compression and tension of our students.  We will have the opportunity to learn – in a safe environment – to read a human being, to sense our own limitations and to test and recognise those of others.  Eventually, with the benefit of myriad insights and enhanced self-awareness, we will be able to assess the needs and limitations of any individual student.

The foundation has been laid.

This level I training is a certified stand-alone teacher training and is also the first of four modules that together make up Yin Therapy’s 200hr Yin Yoga & Anatomy Teacher Training.

On successful completion of all assignments and 100% attendance you will be awarded a 50 hour Yin Yoga & Anatomy Teacher Training certificate which may be counted towards our Yoga Alliance internationally recognised 200hr Yin Yoga & Anatomy Teacher Training certificate or recognised as continuing education hours for Yoga Alliance registered yoga teachers.

Yin Yoga & Anatomy Teacher Training II - Flying Masters, Melbourne (in English)

"Tell me, and I will forget. Show me, and I may remember. Involve me, and I will understand." (Confucius)

Confucius’ saying reflects the emphasis of this particular Yin Yoga Teacher Training where the focus is on sensing, feeling, experiencing the yin yoga practice and the unique anatomy of our individual bone structure for ourselves.  You will be analysing yourselves and each other, conducting passive assists as well as experiencing compression and tension amongst your fellow students.  Through this very much hands on, practical approach your knowledge and understanding will be increased tenfold.


Welcome to Yin Yoga Teacher Training II
This 50-hour intensive certified yoga teaching programme (6 days) comprises 6 sections:

1. Yin Yoga Asanas

In this continuance of our yin yoga teacher training programme, we concentrate mainly on the 9 awareness points of functional yoga.


2. Anatomy is the Key

As well as analysing compression, we’ll study the tension of the muscular and fascial tissues and the effect of these on the asana practice.  This will allow us to offer our students logical assists.


3. 7-Point Analysing Principle for Assists - Theory

In this section of the training schedule, we’ll improve our knowledge of the 7-point analysis principle.
 

4. Application of the 7-Point Analysing Principle – Tests and Analysis of Assists/Adjustments

In this element of the training programme, we’ll focus on applying the 7-point analysis principle for assists and – working with the student – study ways of analysing yoga poses on the basis of compression and tension, orientation of the joints, and proportions.

To do this, we’ll learn tests from the Yin Yoga and Anatomy Teacher Training I programme then apply them to our fellow students.

One special feature of this series of tests will be analysing a shoulder stand in detail. This is a sneak preview for the Yin Yoga and Anatomy Teacher Training level III programme, where we’ll focus on the upper body and extremities.


5. Passive Assists

In section 5 we learn passive, hand-on assists.


6. Yin Therapy - The Therapeutic Benefits of Yin Yoga

In YYTT II, we establish a basic understanding of how – using Yin Therapy's approach – we can employ the therapeutic elements of Yin Yoga to support our students’ individual and specific physical and emotional issues.

According to statistics, 25% of the yoga students who come to us took up yoga originally precisely because they have these specific problems.


Students must have completed Yin Therapy's Yin Yoga and Anatomy Teacher Training I course to be able to participate in Yin Yoga and Anatomy Teacher Training II.

This level II training is a certified stand-alone teacher training and is also the second of four modules that together make up Yin Therapy’s 200hour Yin Yoga & Anatomy Teacher Training.

On successful completion of all assignments and 100% attendance you will be awarded a 50 hour Yin Yoga & Anatomy Teacher Training certificate which may be counted towards our Yoga Alliance internationally recognised 200hr Yin Yoga & Anatomy Teacher Training certificate or recognised as continuing education hours for Yoga Alliance registered yoga teachers.

“Wherever you go, go with all your heart.” (Confucius)

In this 6 day certified Level I (50 hour) training of our 200 hour Yin Yoga & Anatomy Teacher Training programme, we not only learn the 20 basic yin yoga poses in theory and in practice, we also discover a sense of security when teaching, through developing an anatomical understanding of skeletal variation.

We learn to employ the 7 point analysis principle to understand each yoga pose as well as the individual and unique bodies of not only ourselves but also our students. In turn this enables us to offer logical assists and variations.  Anatomy is the key. 

Welcome to Yin Yoga Teacher Training I
This 50-hour intensive yoga teaching programme (6 days) comprises 4 sections:

1. Yin Yoga Asanas

This section covers the theory and practice for teaching 20 yin yoga poses, including their specific characteristics and their effects.


2. Anatomy is the Key

Anatomical understanding of not only the individual bone structure but also the muscular, connective, fascial and ligament tissues is an essential prerequisite for an effective yoga teacher.
 

3. 7-point Analysing Principle for Assists - Theory

The Yin Yoga and Anatomy Teacher Training programme focuses less on teaching set assists and much more on introducing a 7-point analysis principle, which you can then use for every known yoga pose and for each individual student.


4. 7-point Analysing Principle - Practical Tests

In the Yin Yoga and Anatomy Teacher Training programme, we’ll study and apply a series of practical tests for analysing the bone structure, compression and tension of our students.  We will have the opportunity to learn – in a safe environment – to read a human being, to sense our own limitations and to test and recognise those of others.  Eventually, with the benefit of myriad insights and enhanced self-awareness, we will be able to assess the needs and limitations of any individual student.

The foundation has been laid.

This training is suitable for already certified and aspiring yoga teachers as well as dedicated yoga students, who wish for a deeper understanding of Yin Yoga and Yoga Anatomy for their teaching and/or own practice.

This level I training is a certified stand-alone teacher training and is also the first of four modules that together make up Yin Therapy’s 200hour Yin Yoga & Anatomy Teacher Training.

On successful completion of all assignments and 100% attendance of this training, students will be awarded a Yoga Alliance 50 hour certificate which can be counted towards our 200 hour Yin Therapy Yin Yoga & Anatomy Teacher Training programme or Continuing Education with Yoga Alliance.

Yin Yoga & Anatomy Teacher Training II - Power Yoga Vienna
(in German)

"Tell me, and I will forget. Show me, and I may remember. Involve me, and I will understand." (Confucius)

Confucius’ saying reflects the emphasis of this particular Yin Yoga Teacher Training where the focus is on sensing, feeling, experiencing the yin yoga practice and the unique anatomy of our individual bone structure for ourselves.  You will be analysing yourselves and each other, conducting passive assists as well as experiencing compression and tension amongst your fellow students.  Through this very much hands on, practical approach your knowledge and understanding will be increased tenfold.


Welcome to Yin Yoga Teacher Training II
This 50-hour intensive certified yoga teaching course (6 days) comprises 6 sections:

1. Yin Yoga Asanas

In this continuance of our yin yoga teacher training programme, we concentrate mainly on the 9 awareness points of functional yoga.


2. Anatomy is the Key

As well as analysing compression, we’ll study the tension of the muscular and fascial tissues and the effect of these on the asana practice.  This will allow us to offer our students logical assists.


3. 7-Point Analysing Principle for Assists - Theory

In this section of the training schedule, we’ll improve our knowledge of the 7-point analysis principle.
 

4. Application of the 7-Point Analysing Principle – Tests and Analysis of Assists/Adjustments

In this element of the training programme, we’ll focus on applying the 7-point analysis principle for assists and – working with the student – study ways of analysing yoga poses on the basis of compression and tension, orientation of the joints, and proportions.

To do this, we’ll learn tests from the Yin Yoga and Anatomy Teacher Training I programme then apply them to our fellow students.

One special feature of this series of tests will be analysing a shoulder stand in detail. This is a sneak preview for the Yin Yoga and Anatomy Teacher Training level III programme, where we’ll focus on the upper body and extremities.


5. Passive Assists

In section 5 we learn passive, hand-on assists.


6. Yin Therapy - The Therapeutic Benefits of Yin Yoga

In YYTT II, we establish a basic understanding of how – using Yin Therapy's approach – we can employ the therapeutic elements of Yin Yoga to support our students’ individual and specific physical and emotional issues.

According to statistics, 25% of the yoga students who come to us took up yoga originally precisely because they have these specific problems.


Students must have completed Yin Therapy's Yin Yoga and Anatomy Teacher Training I course to be able to participate in Yin Yoga and Anatomy Teacher Training II.

This level II training is a certified stand-alone teacher training and is also the second of four modules that together make up Yin Therapy’s 200hour Yin Yoga & Anatomy Teacher Training.

On successful completion of all assignments and 100% attendance you will be awarded a 50 hour Yin Yoga & Anatomy Teacher Training certificate which may be counted towards our Yoga Alliance internationally recognised 200hr Yin Yoga & Anatomy Teacher Training certificate or recognised as continuing education hours for Yoga Alliance registered yoga teachers.

Yin Yoga & Anatomy Teacher Training III - Golden Yogi, Auckland
(in English)

A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step." (Lao-tzu)

You have already completed many steps along your personal and unique Yin Yoga & Anatomy journey. In this teacher training we complete the yin yoga practice and yoga anatomy theory.

We focus our attention on the individual bone structure, muscles and facial chains of the upper body and discover the implications for our yin and yang yoga practice. Through many different tests, analysis, variations and suggestions for therapeutic benefit e.g. shoulder neck pain, we learn to appreciate the person as a whole.

Welcome to Yin Yoga & Anatomy Teacher Training III
This 50-hour certified intensive yoga teaching course (6 days) comprises 5 sections:

1. Yin Yoga Asanas

In this yin yoga teacher training course, we concentrate on the upper body eg. shoulder, scapula, shoulder/neck, wrists and as in level II, on the many variations of relevant poses. Furthermore, with special exercises, we begin to discover, experience and differentiate between blood, breath, nerves and chi flow within our own bodies.


2. Blood, Nerves, Breath, Chi

Heartbeat, blood circulation, nerve impulses, breath circulation are fluctuations within the body that can distract one's ability to sense the underlying chi flow and can often be misinterpreted by many experienced yoga students and teachers for the chi flow eg. blood circulation for chi flow.

We delve into the anatomical function of the blood, nerves breath and clarify with practical exercises, how to consciously feel blood, nerves, breath to enable us to place these sensations to the periphery.

What remains is chi.


3. Energy, Mantras & Philosophy

In this module, we begin our journey into energy work, mantras & yoga philosophy and slowly become familiar with the teachings of reincarnation, karma, the 3 realms, Patanjali's sutras, tantric chakra teachings, nadis (meridian theory) & mantra work.

Here is where we discover the key to our true spiritual growth.
 

4. Upper Body Anatomy - Analyse, Tests & Passive Assists

In YYTT III, we learn the muscle groups of the upper body, their function and explore in detail various aspects eg. rotator cuff, scapula etc.

We analyse compression and tension of the shoulder joint and explain and show it's relevance to yang yoga asanas (Downward Facing Dog, Warrior), to demonstrate how individual bone structure not only limits and affects our Yin Yoga asana practice.


5. Yin Therapy

In YYTT II, we established a fundamental understanding of how Yin Yoga can enhance and restore balance for ourselves and our students from a physical and mental aspect.

In YYTT III, we delve deeper.

Students must have completed Yin Therapy's YYTT I and II courses to be eligible to participate in our YYTT III.

On successful completion of all assignments and 100% attendance of this training, students will be awarded a Yoga Alliance 50 hour certificate which can be counted towards our 200 hour Yin Therapy Yin Yoga & Anatomy Teacher Training course or Continuing Education hours with Yoga Alliance for registered teachers.

Yin Yoga & Anatomy Teacher Training IV - Golden Yogi, Auckland
(in English)

"Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life." (Confucius)

When one arrives, we feel, as yin yoga practitioners and teachers that it is no longer work,
but rather a gift.

Through the previous training levels, we have enough knowledge under our anatomy belts to understand and sense the more refined energy work of the meridians and to explore the implications for our own practice and that of our students.

The desire is for the energy – internally and externally – to be tangible for each and every student, so that our teaching becomes authentic and not only theoretical.

Furthermore, besides delving into yoga philosophy and the theory of energy work you can expect to be taken on a very personal, energetic and emotional journey this week with much yin yoga, meditation and pranayama practice.

The intention of this course – the middle way (Buddha's teaching)  the journey inwards  – the journey to our essence.
 

Welcome to Yin Yoga & Anatomy Teacher Training IV
This 50-hour certified intensive yoga teaching programme (6 days) comprises 6 sections:

1. Yin Yoga Asanas

In this continuance of our yin yoga teacher training programme, we concentrate mainly on the chakras and meridians of our bodies.  For asana practice, this means learning to become aware of the subtle chi (energy) flow in the meridians, and to feel its effects on the balance of both body and mind.
 

2. Yoga Philosophy - the Ultimate Path of Yoga

In the yoga philosophy section, we study the ultimate path of practising yoga. We deepen our exploration by learning about the Samkhya philosophy - the Indian understanding of reincarnation, karma and an insight into their understanding of the universe and describe the path of a yogi.

We will intensify our study of Patanjali and his first four yoga sutras, and discuss in detail the eightfold path.

Furthermore, for inspiration we will look to the Buddha's way, his teachings and the path of a yogi from the exoteric to the esoteric from a Buddhist perspective. Here we will illustrate how essential meditation practice is. 


3. Chakras and Meridian Theory

In this section, we examine chakra theory as the energy centre of our body and discover the sense and power of practising chakra meditation on the spiritual path to enlightenment.

We’ll also study meridian theory.

In the physical body, we know about the role of bioelectrical flow (nerves) and chemical flow (hormones) as a natural source of power and energy for the body.  In chakra and meridian theory, chi represents the highest authority at a physical level, coordinating both the bioelectrical and the chemical flow in the body and supplying it with energy.

If chi is flowing, we are healthy.  If chi is not flowing, we become ill.

Through yin yoga, pranayama and meditation, we move chi and achieve balance in the body and mind.
 

4. Meditation, Bandhas, Pranayama and Anatomy - Theory

Teaching the theory of meditation (dharana – concentration / dhyana – seeing what is), bandhas (locks), pranayama (breath control), pratahara (looking inwards and conducting energy to the spinal column) and the anatomy associated with it is as fascinating as it is exhilarating.

In addition, we compare it with classical Buddhist meditation practice and universal meditation, philosophy and theory.
 

5. Meditation, Bandhas, Pranayama and Anatomy - Practice

With the theoretical knowledge of meditation under our belts, we focus intensely each day on one of the following meditation themes as we practise:

  • Universal meditation
  • Chakra meditation over two days
  • Bandha meditation
  • Pranayama exercises
  • Pratyahara exercises
  • Shushumna purification   

This practice offers an insight into and provides a taster of our Yin Therapy Meditation Retreat / Teacher Training course.
The Yin Therapy Meditation Course (100 hours) can lead to an extremely profound personal experience and transformation.
 

6. Yin Therapy

In this section we turn our attention to creating a more extensive picture of energy and holistic healing in the body.
During this module, we will explore various theories and find the connection between them.

At the heart of this fourth and final Yin Therapy module lie:

  • Exoteric & Esoteric
  • The Little Yoga Path = Health
  • Dr Motoyama’s perspective on chakras, meridians and healing

Students must have successfully completed our YYTT I - III courses to be eligible to participate in this YYTT IV course.

This level IV training is a certified stand-alone teacher training and is also the last of four modules that together make up Yin Therapy’s 200hour Yin Yoga & Anatomy Teacher Training.

On successful completion of levels I - IV, students will be awarded a Yoga Alliance 200 hour Yin Therapy Yin Yoga & Anatomy Teacher Training certificate or a 50 hour certificate towards Continuing Education with Yoga Alliance for registered teachers.

Yin Yoga - Skeletal Variations Workshop (English) - Melbourne, Australia

  • Google Calendar ICS

Yin Yoga - Skeletal Variations Workshop - Flying Masters, Melbourne (in English)

Following international yoga teacher (and fellow Paul Grilley student) Bernie Clark’s long awaited and hotly discussed book “Your Body, Your Yoga”, yoga students and teachers around the world are recognising the limitations (and potential harm) of the “one alignment for all” rule book.

We will discuss skeletal variation, see for ourselves just how different our bone structures really are and in doing so, discover the shortfall of classic alignment rules. When we understand the importance of respecting our own unique bone structure, we can determine our own individual alignment and consequently discover our own very unique yoga asana practice – maximising the benefits and minimising the risk of injury.

Theory:
- Skeletal variation
- Function/aesthetics
- Compression and tension
- Analysis of a yoga pose

Practice:
Skeletal variation tests and practical consequences for yang yoga asanas and assists – such as lotus, shoulder stand, pigeon, down dog, warrior, etc.

We will analyse the following asanas in detail:
- Lotus position – external rotation of the hip joint
- Reclining hero –  internal rotation of the hip joint
- Shoulder Stand – neck, shoulder, collarbone and shoulder blade

We will discuss the following issues:
- What restrictions does my individual bone structure impose on me?
- How different is it from other people’s bone structure?
- Will I or my students ever manage to get into the lotus position or achieve a “perfect” pigeon, etc?
- Where are the areas of compression and tension within my individual bone structure? How do I deal with it?
- How can I stretch and stimulate the tissues, when compression is constricting me?
- What is the physical function of a yoga pose?


The hours from this workshop can be used towards Continuing Education with Yoga Alliance for registered teachers.

The journey from the gross to the subtle body.

“When someone asks me, what is so special about Yin Yoga, I reply – with each yoga asana practice, we have the privilege of experiencing an inner journey from the gross to the subtle body and through this, insight arises out of the practice. The wonder and healing unfolds during the rebound.” Markus Giess

Experience and enjoy the journey inwards.

We will stimulate the energy of your body through the mind, the breath, the voice (vibration) and with the body.

In the rebound, we will experience the gentle, undulating to the strong and powerful electrical stimulation of the chakra and meridian systems, which has a powerful effect on the physical, emotional, energetic and mental planes. A potent experience that you will not easily forget.

Practice:
Chakra Pranayama Meditation – Rebound – feel, see, hear
Bija Mantras – Rebound – feel, see, hear
Yin Yoga Asana Practice – Rebound –  feel, see, hear
Silent Meditation

This 50-hour certified intensive yoga teaching course (6 days) comprises 5 sections:

1. Yin Yoga Asanas

In this yin yoga teacher training course, we concentrate on the upper body eg. shoulder, scapula, shoulder/neck, wrists and as in level II, on the many variations of relevant poses. Furthermore, with special exercises, we begin to discover, experience and differentiate between blood, breath, nerves and chi flow within our own bodies.


2. Blood, Nerves, Breath, Chi

Heartbeat, blood circulation, nerve impulses, breath circulation are fluctuations within the body that can distract one's ability to sense the underlying chi flow and can often be misinterpreted by many experienced yoga students and teachers for the chi flow eg. blood circulation for chi flow.

We delve into the anatomical function of the blood, nerves breath and clarify with practical exercises, how to consciously feel blood, nerves, breath to enable us to place these sensations to the periphery.

What remains is chi.


3. Energy, Mantras & Philosophy

In this module, we begin our journey into energy work, mantras & yoga philosophy and slowly become familiar with the teachings of reincarnation, karma, the 3 realms, Patanjali's sutras, tantric chakra teachings, nadis (meridian theory) & mantra work.

Here is where we discover the key to our true spiritual growth.
 

4. Upper Body Anatomy - Analyse, Tests & Passive Assists

In YYTT III, we learn the muscle groups of the upper body, their function and explore in detail various aspects eg. rotator cuff, scapula etc.

We analyse compression and tension of the shoulder joint and explain and show it's relevance to yang yoga asanas (Downward Facing Dog, Warrior), to demonstrate how individual bone structure not only limits and affects our Yin Yoga asana practice.


5. Yin Therapy

In YYTT II, we established a fundamental understanding of how Yin Yoga can enhance and restore balance for ourselves and our students from a physical and mental aspect.

In YYTT III, we delve deeper.


Students must have completed Yin Therapy's YYTT I and II courses to be eligible to participate in our YYTT III.

On successful completion of all assignments and 100% attendance of this training, students will be awarded a Yoga Alliance 50 hour certificate which can be counted towards our 200 hour Yin Therapy Yin Yoga & Anatomy Teacher Training course or Continuing Education hours with Yoga Alliance for registered teachers.

Yin Yoga & Anatomy Teacher Training IV - Flying Masters, Melbourne (in English)

"Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life." (Confucius)

When one arrives, we feel, as yin yoga practitioners and teachers that it is no longer work,
but rather a gift.

Through the previous training levels, we have enough knowledge under our anatomy belts to understand and sense the more refined energy work of the meridians and to explore the implications for our own practice and that of our students.

The desire is for the energy – internally and externally – to be tangible for each and every student, so that our teaching becomes authentic and not only theoretical.

Furthermore, besides delving into yoga philosophy and the theory of energy work you can expect to be taken on a very personal, energetic and emotional journey this week with much yin yoga, meditation and pranayama practice.

The intention of this course – the middle way (Buddha's teaching)  the journey inwards  – the journey to our essence.
 

Welcome to Yin Yoga & Anatomy Teacher Training IV
This 50-hour certified intensive yoga teaching programme (6 days) comprises 6 sections:

1. Yin Yoga Asanas

In this continuance of our yin yoga teacher training programme, we concentrate mainly on the chakras and meridians of our bodies.  For asana practice, this means learning to become aware of the subtle chi (energy) flow in the meridians, and to feel its effects on the balance of both body and mind.
 

2. Yoga Philosophy - the Ultimate Path of Yoga

In the yoga philosophy section, we study the ultimate path of practising yoga. We deepen our exploration by learning about the Samkhya philosophy - the Indian understanding of reincarnation, karma and an insight into their understanding of the universe and describe the path of a yogi.

We will intensify our study of Patanjali and his first four yoga sutras, and discuss in detail the eightfold path.

Furthermore, for inspiration we will look to the Buddha's way, his teachings and the path of a yogi from the exoteric to the esoteric from a Buddhist perspective. Here we will illustrate how essential meditation practice is. 


3. Chakras and Meridian Theory

In this section, we examine chakra theory as the energy centre of our body and discover the sense and power of practising chakra meditation on the spiritual path to enlightenment.

We’ll also study meridian theory.

In the physical body, we know about the role of bioelectrical flow (nerves) and chemical flow (hormones) as a natural source of power and energy for the body.  In chakra and meridian theory, chi represents the highest authority at a physical level, coordinating both the bioelectrical and the chemical flow in the body and supplying it with energy.

If chi is flowing, we are healthy.  If chi is not flowing, we become ill.

Through yin yoga, pranayama and meditation, we move chi and achieve balance in the body and mind.
 

4. Meditation, Bandhas, Pranayama and Anatomy - Theory

Teaching the theory of meditation (dharana – concentration / dhyana – seeing what is), bandhas (locks), pranayama (breath control), pratahara (looking inwards and conducting energy to the spinal column) and the anatomy associated with it is as fascinating as it is exhilarating.

In addition, we compare it with classical Buddhist meditation practice and universal meditation, philosophy and theory.
 

5. Meditation, Bandhas, Pranayama and Anatomy - Practice

With the theoretical knowledge of meditation under our belts, we focus intensely each day on one of the following meditation themes as we practise:

  • Universal meditation
  • Chakra meditation over two days
  • Bandha meditation
  • Pranayama exercises
  • Pratyahara exercises
  • Shushumna purification   

This practice offers an insight into and provides a taster of our Yin Therapy Meditation Retreat / Teacher Training course.
The Yin Therapy Meditation Course (100 hours) can lead to an extremely profound personal experience and transformation.
 

6. Yin Therapy

In this section we turn our attention to creating a more extensive picture of energy and holistic healing in the body.
During this module, we will explore various theories and find the connection between them.

At the heart of this fourth and final Yin Therapy module lie:

  • Exoteric & Esoteric
  • The Little Yoga Path = Health
  • Dr Motoyama’s perspective on chakras, meridians and healing


Students must have successfully completed our YYTT I - III courses to be eligible to participate in this YYTT IV course.

This level IV training is a certified stand-alone teacher training and is also the last of four modules that together make up Yin Therapy’s 200hour Yin Yoga & Anatomy Teacher Training.

On successful completion of levels I - IV, students will be awarded a Yoga Alliance 200 hour Yin Therapy Yin Yoga & Anatomy Teacher Training certificate or a 50 hour certificate towards Continuing Education with Yoga Alliance for registered teachers.

Yin Yoga & Anatomy Teacher Training I - Vinya Loft Yogastudio, Bremen
(in German)

“Wherever you go, go with all your heart.” (Confucius)

In our 6 day certified Level I (50 hour) training of our 200 hour Yin Yoga & Anatomy Teacher Training programme, we not only learn the 20 basic yin yoga poses in theory and in practice, we also discover a sense of security when teaching, through developing an anatomical understanding of skeletal variation.

We learn to employ the 7 point analysis principle to understand each yoga pose as well as the individual and unique bodies of not only ourselves but also our students. In turn this enables us to offer logical assists and variations.  Anatomy is the key. 
 

Welcome to Yin Yoga Teacher Training I
This 50-hour intensive yoga teaching programme (6 days) comprises 4 sections:


1. Yin Yoga Asanas

This section covers the theory and practice for teaching 20 yin yoga poses, including their specific characteristics and their effects.


2. Anatomy is the Key

Anatomical understanding of not only the individual bone structure but also the muscular, connective, fascial and ligament tissues is an essential prerequisite for an effective yoga teacher.
 

3. 7-Point Analysing Principle for Assists - Theory

The Yin Yoga and Anatomy Teacher Training programme focuses less on teaching set assists and much more on introducing a 7-point analysis principle, which you can then use for every known yoga pose and for each individual student.


4. 7-Point Analysing Principle - Practical Tests

In the Yin Yoga and Anatomy Teacher Training programme, we’ll study and apply a series of practical tests for analysing the bone structure, compression and tension of our students.  We will have the opportunity to learn – in a safe environment – to read a human being, to sense our own limitations and to test and recognise those of others.  Eventually, with the benefit of myriad insights and enhanced self-awareness, we will be able to assess the needs and limitations of any individual student.

The foundation has been laid.

This training is suitable for already certified and aspiring yoga teachers as well as dedicated yoga students, who wish for a deeper understanding of Yin Yoga and Yoga Anatomy for their teaching and/or own practice.

On successful completion of all assignments and 100% attendance of this training, students will be awarded a Yoga Alliance 50 hour certificate which can be counted towards our 200 hour Yin Therapy Yin Yoga & Anatomy Teacher Training programme or Continuing Education hours with Yoga Alliance registered teachers.

Yin Yoga & Anatomy Teacher Training II - Power Yoga Vienna
(in German)

"Tell me, and I will forget. Show me, and I may remember. Involve me, and I will understand." (Confucius)

Confucius’ saying reflects the emphasis of this particular Yin Yoga Teacher Training where the focus is on sensing, feeling, experiencing the yin yoga practice and the unique anatomy of our individual bone structure for ourselves.  You will be analysing yourselves and each other, conducting passive assists as well as experiencing compression and tension amongst your fellow students.  Through this very much hands on, practical approach your knowledge and understanding will be increased tenfold.


Welcome to Yin Yoga Teacher Training II
This 50-hour intensive certified yoga teaching programme (6 days) comprises 6 sections:

1. Yin Yoga Asanas

In this continuance of our yin yoga teacher training programme, we concentrate mainly on the 9 awareness points of functional yoga.


2. Anatomy is the Key

As well as analysing compression, we’ll study the tension of the muscular and fascial tissues and the effect of these on the asana practice.  This will allow us to offer our students logical assists.


3. 7-Point Analysing Principle for Assists - Theory

In this section of the training schedule, we’ll improve our knowledge of the 7-point analysis principle.
 

4. Application of the 7-Point Analysing Principle – Tests and Analysis of Assists/Adjustments

In this element of the training programme, we’ll focus on applying the 7-point analysis principle for assists and – working with the student – study ways of analysing yoga poses on the basis of compression and tension, orientation of the joints, and proportions.

To do this, we’ll learn tests from the Yin Yoga and Anatomy Teacher Training I programme then apply them to our fellow students.

One special feature of this series of tests will be analysing a shoulder stand in detail. This is a sneak preview for the Yin Yoga and Anatomy Teacher Training level III programme, where we’ll focus on the upper body and extremities.


5. Passive Assists

In section 5 we learn passive, hand-on assists.
 

6. Yin Therapy - The Therapeutic Benefits of Yin Yoga

In YYTT II, we establish a basic understanding of how – using Yin Therapy's approach – we can employ the therapeutic elements of Yin Yoga to support our students’ individual and specific physical and emotional issues.

According to statistics, 25% of the yoga students who come to us took up yoga originally precisely because they have these specific problems.
 

Students must have completed our Yin Therapy's Level I programme to be able to participate in the Yin Yoga and Anatomy Teacher Training II programme.

On successful completion of all assignments and 100% attendance of this training, students will be awarded a Yoga Alliance 50 hour certificate which can be counted towards our 200 hour Yin Therapy Yin Yoga & Anatomy Teacher Training programme or Continuing Education hours with Yoga Alliance registered teachers.

In the Yin Yoga and Anatomy Teacher Training, we’ll study and apply a series of practical tests for analysing the bone structure, compression and tension of our students.  We will have the opportunity to learn – in a safe environment – to read a human being, to sense our own limitations and to test and recognise those of others.  Eventually, with the benefit of myriad insights and enhanced self-awareness, we will be able to assess the needs and limitations of any individual student.

The foundation has been laid.

This level I training is a certified stand-alone teacher training and is also the first of four modules that together make up Yin Therapy’s 200hr Yin Yoga & Anatomy Teacher Training.

On successful completion of all assignments and 100% attendance you will be awarded a 50 hour Yin Yoga & Anatomy Teacher Training certificate which may be counted towards our Yoga Alliance internationally recognised 200hr Yin Yoga & Anatomy Teacher Training certificate or recognised as continuing education hours for Yoga Alliance registered yoga teachers.

Yin Yoga Weekend Immersion

“Wherever you go, go with all your heart.” (Confucius)

Yin yoga is one of the calmest and most relaxing forms of yoga in the world, consisting of a series of passive poses of the body.

By means of long-held stretches (3–5 minutes) without muscle tension, we focus on the deep connective, fascial and ligamental tissues – stimulating, strengthening and stretching the tissues.

We mobilise the joints, and stimulate and calm the nervous system, thereby reducing stress and encouraging regeneration.

During the practice we temporarily slow down the flow of Chi energy, enabling the revitalising energy to accumulate and then flow more freely on conclusion of the practice.

Indeed for days after a yin yoga practice, we’ll feel blissfully relaxed and recharged.

This workshop is suitable for yoga teachers and also yoga students wishing to experience and learn more about Yin Yoga and yoga anatomy.
 

10.30am - 2.00pm Morning Session - Yin Yoga

Theory:
What is Yin Yoga?
What is yang yoga?
What are the advantages of each kind of yoga?
How do they complement each other?
What is tension and what is compression?
What is the function of our connective tissue/fascia in this practice?
Stress and back pain, and yin yoga as a “therapeutic touch”

Practice:
Yin Yoga class (Paul Grilley style)
Focus: back class


3.00pm - 6.30pm Afternoon Session - Yoga Anatomy

Theory:
Skeletal variation
Function/aesthetics
Compression and tension
Analysis of a yoga pose

Practice:
Skeletal variation tests and practical consequences for yang yoga asanas and assists – such as lotus, shoulder stand, pigeon, down dog, warrior, etc.

We’ll analyse the following asanas in detail:
Lotus position        - external rotation of the hip joint
Reclining hero       -  internal rotation of the hip joint
Shoulderstand       - neck, shoulder, collarbone and shoulder blade

We'll discuss the following issues:
What restrictions does my individual bone structure impose on me?
How different is it from other people’s bone structure?
Will I or my students ever manage to get into the lotus position or achieve a “perfect” pigeon, etc?
Where are the areas of compression and tension within my individual bone structure? How do I deal with it? How can I stretch and stimulate the tissues, when compression is constricting me?
What is the physical function of a yoga pose?

Yin Yoga & Anatomy Teacher Training IV (German) - Taunus (near Wiesbaden), Germany
May

to May 27

Yin Yoga & Anatomy Teacher Training IV (German) - Taunus (near Wiesbaden), Germany

  • Seminarhaus Sampurna (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Yin Yoga & Anatomy Teacher Training IV - Flying Yogi Hamburg
(in German)

"Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life." (Confucius)

When one arrives, we feel, as yin yoga practitioners and teachers that it is no longer work,
but rather a gift.

Through the previous training levels, we have enough knowledge under our anatomy belts to understand and sense the more refined energy work of the meridians and to explore the implications for our own practice and that of our students.

The desire is for the energy – internally and externally – to be tangible for each and every student, so that our teaching becomes authentic and not only theoretical.

Furthermore, besides delving into yoga philosophy and the theory of energy work you can expect to be taken on a very personal, energetic and emotional journey this week with much yin yoga, meditation and pranayama practice.

The intention of this course – the middle way (Buddha's teaching)  the journey inwards  – the journey to our essence.

This 50 hour intensive programme IV is created for all yoga teachers who wish to delve deeper into Yin Yoga - the quiet practice and increase their knowledge on the anatomic and energetic theories of the practice.
 

Welcome to Yin Yoga & Anatomy Teacher Training IV
This 50-hour certified intensive yoga teaching programme (6 days) comprises 6 sections:

1. Yin yoga asanas

In this continuance of our yin yoga teacher training programme, we concentrate mainly on the chakras and meridians of our bodies.  For asana practice, this means learning to be aware of the subtle chi (energy) flow in the meridians, and to feel its effects on the balance of both body and mind.
 

2. Yoga philosophy

In the yoga philosophy section, we study the ultimate goal of practising yoga. To do this, we look to Patanjali and his first four yoga sutras, and embark on the eightfold path.

The main questions that we will address are:

  • What is yoga?
  • What is the path of yoga?
     

3. Chakras and meridian theory

In this section, we examine chakra theory as the energy centre of our body and discover the sense and power of practising chakra meditation on the spiritual path to enlightenment.

We’ll also cover meridian theory.

In the physical body, we know about the role of bioelectrical flow (nerves) and chemical flow (hormones) as a natural source of power and energy for the body.  In chakra and meridian theory, chi represents the highest authority at a physical level, coordinating both the bioelectrical and the chemical flow in the body and supplying it with energy.

If chi is flowing, we are healthy.  If chi is not flowing, we become ill.

Through yin yoga, pranayama and meditation, we move chi and achieve balance in the body and mind.
 

4. Theory – meditation, bandhas, pranayama and anatomy

Teaching the theory of meditation (dharana – concentration / dhyana – seeing what is), bandhas (locks), pranayama (breath control), pratahara (looking inwards and conducting energy to the spinal column) and the anatomy associated with it is as fascinating as it is exhilarating.

In addition, we compare it with classical Buddhist meditation practice and universal meditation, philosophy and theory.
 

5. Practice – meditation, bandhas, pranayama and anatomy

Fully conversant with the theory of meditation, we are now ready to move on to meditation practice.

Each day, we will focus intensively on a theme as we practise:

  •  Universal meditation
  • Chakra meditation over two days
  • Bandha meditation
  • Pranayama exercises
  • Pratyahara exercises
  • Shushumna purification   

This practice offers an insight into and provides a taster of the Yin Therapy Meditation Training.
The Yin Therapy Meditation Programme (100 hours) can lead to an extremely profound personal experience and transformation.
 

6. Yin Therapy

In this section we turn our attention to creating a more extensive picture of energy and holistic healing in the body.
During this module, we will explore various theories and find the connection between them.

At the heart of this third Yin Therapy module lie:

  • Theory of Universal meditation – thought, emotion, reaction
  • Fascial research results in conjunction with the new meridian theory
  • Dr Motoyama’s perspective on chakras, meridians and healing
  • Quantum physics
  • Brain research with regard to meditation
  • Various therapeutic energy methods:
  • Reiki
  • Thai massage
  • Shiatsu

Students must have successfully completed our YYTTI - III programmes before participating in this YYTTIV programme.

This level IV training is a certified stand-alone teacher training and is also the last of four modules that together make up Yin Therapy’s 200hour Yin Yoga & Anatomy Teacher Training.

On successful completion of levels I - IV, students will be awarded a Yoga Alliance 200 hour Yin Therapy Yin Yoga & Anatomy Teacher Training certificate or a 50 hour certificate towards Continuing Education with Yoga Alliance.

“Wherever you go, go with all your heart.” (Confucius)

In this 6 day certified Level I (50 hour) training of our 200 hour Yin Yoga & Anatomy Teacher Training programme, we not only learn the 20 basic yin yoga poses in theory and in practice, we also discover a sense of security when teaching, through developing an anatomical understanding of skeletal variation.

We learn to employ the 7 point analysis principle to understand each yoga pose as well as the individual and unique bodies of not only ourselves but also our students. In turn this enables us to offer logical assists and variations.  Anatomy is the key. 

Welcome to Yin Yoga Teacher Training I
This 50-hour intensive yoga teaching programme (6 days) comprises 4 sections:


1. Yin yoga asanas

This section covers the theory and practice for teaching 20 yin yoga poses, including their specific characteristics and their effects.


2. Anatomy is the key

Anatomical understanding of not only the individual bone structure but also the muscular, connective, fascial and ligament tissues is an essential prerequisite for an effective yoga teacher.
 

3. 7-point analysis principle for assists - theory

The Yin Yoga and Anatomy Teacher Training programme focuses less on teaching set assists and much more on introducing a 7-point analysis principle, which you can then use for every known yoga pose and for each individual student.


4. 7-point analysis principle - practical tests

The foundation has been laid.

This training is suitable for already certified and aspiring yoga teachers as well as dedicated yoga students, who wish for a deeper understanding of Yin Yoga and Yoga Anatomy for their teaching and/or own practice.

This level I training is a certified stand-alone teacher training and is also the first of four modules that together make up Yin Therapy’s 200hour Yin Yoga & Anatomy Teacher Training.

On successful completion of all assignments and 100% attendance of this training, students will be awarded a Yoga Alliance 50 hour certificate which can be counted towards our 200 hour Yin Therapy Yin Yoga & Anatomy Teacher Training programme or Continuing Education with Yoga Alliance.

Yin Yoga Hip Opener Class "Issues in the Tissues"

Why is Yin Yoga & hip opener classes so often emotional? 

This Yin Yoga class is aimed at everyone who always wanted to know why long held Yin yoga asanas eg. hip openers leave us so vulnerable and emotional. 

What is coming up? How do I deal with it? Is this part of my yoga journey? 
 

Sunday 14.05.2017 - 2.30pm - 4.00pm

Attention: Individual Bone Structure

Following international yoga teacher (and fellow Paul Grilley student) Bernie Clark’s long awaited and hotly discussed book “Your Body, Your Yoga”, yoga students and teachers around the world are recognising the limitations (and potential harm) of the “one alignment for all” rule book.

We will learn about individual bone structure, discover just how different our bone structures really are and how this has great significance in regards to the question of yoga alignment. When we understand the importance of respecting our individual bone structure, we realise the shortfall of classic alignment rules and the importance of finding our own individual alignment and consequently we will discover our own very individual and unique yoga asana practice – maximising the benefits and minimising the risk of injury.

Are we all the same? You will be surprised to discover how much skeletal variation exists in one room of yogis! You will find up to 80 degree difference in the joints from one person to another.

Yin Yoga & Anatomy Teacher Training II - Flying Masters, Melbourne (in English)

"Tell me, and I will forget. Show me, and I may remember. Involve me, and I will understand." (Confucius)

Confucius’ saying reflects the emphasis of this particular Yin Yoga Teacher Training where the focus is on sensing, feeling, experiencing the yin yoga practice and the unique anatomy of our individual bone structure for ourselves.  You will be analysing yourselves and each other, conducting passive assists as well as experiencing compression and tension amongst your fellow students.  Through this very much hands on, practical approach your knowledge and understanding will be increased tenfold.



Welcome to Yin Yoga Teacher Training II
This 50-hour intensive certified yoga teaching programme (6 days) comprises 6 sections:

1. Yin yoga asanas

In this continuance of our yin yoga teacher training programme, we concentrate mainly on the 9 awareness points of functional yoga.


2. Anatomy is the key

As well as analysing compression, we’ll study the tension of the muscular and fascial tissues and the effect of these on the asana practice.  This will allow us to offer our students logical assists.


3. 7-point analysis principle for assists - theory

In this section of the training schedule, we’ll improve our knowledge of the 7-point analysis principle.
 

4. Application of the 7-point analysis principle – tests and analysis of assists/adjustments

In this element of the training programme, we’ll focus on applying the 7-point analysis principle for assists and – working with the student – study ways of analysing yoga poses on the basis of compression and tension, orientation of the joints, and proportions.

To do this, we’ll learn tests from the Yin Yoga and Anatomy Teacher Training I programme then apply them to our fellow students.

One special feature of this series of tests will be analysing a shoulder stand in detail. This is a sneak preview for the Yin Yoga and Anatomy Teacher Training level III programme, where we’ll focus on the upper body and extremities.


5. Passive Assists

In section 5 we learn passive, hand-on assists.


6. Yin Therapy - the therapeutic benefits of Yin Yoga

In YYTT II, we establish a basic understanding of how – using Yin Therapy's approach – we can employ the therapeutic elements of Yin Yoga to support our students’ individual and specific physical and emotional issues.

According to statistics, 25% of the yoga students who come to us took up yoga originally precisely because they have these specific problems.

Students must have completed Yin Therapy's Yin Yoga and Anatomy Teacher Training I course to be able to participate in Yin Yoga and Anatomy Teacher Training II.

This level II training is a certified stand-alone teacher training and is also the second of four modules that together make up Yin Therapy’s 200hour Yin Yoga & Anatomy Teacher Training.

On successful completion of all assignments and 100% attendance you will be awarded a 50 hour Yin Yoga & Anatomy Teacher Training certificate which may be counted towards our Yoga Alliance internationally recognised 200hr Yin Yoga & Anatomy Teacher Training certificate or recognised as continuing education hours for Yoga Alliance registered yoga teachers.

Yin Yoga & Anatomy Teacher Training I (English) - Melbourne, Australia

(in English)

“Wherever you go, go with all your heart.” (Confucius)

In this 6 day/50 hour certified Level I course of our 200 hour Yin Yoga & Anatomy Teacher Training, we not only learn the 20 basic yin yoga poses in theory and in practice, we also discover a sense of security when teaching, through developing an anatomical understanding of skeletal variation.

We learn to employ the 7 point analysis principle to understand each yoga pose as well as the individual and unique bodies of not only ourselves but also our students. In turn this enables us to offer logical assists and variations.  Anatomy is the key. 


Welcome to Yin Yoga & Anatomy Teacher Training I
This 50-hour intensive yoga teaching programme (6 days) comprises 4 sections:


1. Yin Yoga asanas

This section covers the theory and practice for teaching 20 yin yoga poses, including their specific characteristics and their effects.


2. Anatomy is the key

Anatomical understanding of not only the individual bone structure but also the muscular, connective, fascial and ligament tissues is an essential prerequisite for an effective yoga teacher.
 

3. 7-point analysis principle for assists - theory

This Yin Yoga and Anatomy Teacher Training focuses less on teaching set assists and much more on introducing a 7-point analysis principle, which you can then use for every known yoga pose and for each individual student.


4. 7-point analysis principle - practical tests

In the Yin Yoga and Anatomy Teacher Training, we’ll study and apply a series of practical tests for analysing the bone structure, compression and tension of our students.  We will have the opportunity to learn – in a safe environment – to read a human being, to sense our own limitations and to test and recognise those of others.  Eventually, with the benefit of myriad insights and enhanced self-awareness, we will be able to assess the needs and limitations of any individual student.

The foundation has been laid.

This level I training is a certified stand-alone teacher training and is also the first of four modules that together make up Yin Therapy’s 200hr Yin Yoga & Anatomy Teacher Training.

Yoga Alliance International 200hr Registered Yoga School

On successful completion of all assignments and 100% attendance you will be awarded a 50 hour Yin Yoga & Anatomy Teacher Training certificate which may be counted towards our Yoga Alliance internationally recognised 200hr Yin Yoga & Anatomy Teacher Training certificate or recognised as continuing education hours for Yoga Alliance registered yoga teachers.

Yin Yoga & Anatomy Workshop (English) - Melbourne, Australia

Yin Yoga & Yoga Anatomy Workshop with Flying Masters, Melbourne (in English)

“Wherever you go, go with all your heart.” (Confucius)

Yin yoga is one of the calmest and most relaxing forms of yoga in the world, consisting of a series of passive poses of the body.

By means of long-held stretches (3–5 minutes) without muscle tension, we focus on the deep connective, fascial and ligamental tissues – stimulating, strengthening and stretching the tissues.

We mobilise the joints, and stimulate and calm the nervous system, thereby reducing stress and encouraging regeneration.

During the practice we temporarily slow down the flow of Chi energy, enabling the revitalising energy to accumulate and then flow more freely on conclusion of the practice.

Indeed for days after a yin yoga practice, we’ll feel blissfully relaxed and recharged.

Depending on the length of the workshop, either all or only certain themes of Yin Yoga and Anatomy theory – as listed below – will be discussed.
Depending on the length of the workshop, either all or only a selection of Yin Yoga and Anatomy listed below will be practised.

Both workshops are suitable for yoga teachers and also yoga students wishing to learn more about yin yoga and yoga anatomy.


Saturday 18 March 2017 (12.30pm - 4.30pm)

Workshop I - Yin Yoga

Theory:

  • What is Yin Yoga?
  • What is yang yoga?
  • What are the advantages of each kind of yoga?
  • How do they complement each other?
  • What is tension and what is compression?
  • What is the function of our connective tissue/fascia in this practice?
  • Stress and back pain, and yin yoga as a “therapeutic touch”

Practice:

  • Yin Yoga class /classes (Paul Grilley style)
    Focus: hip opener or back class

Saturday 18 March 2017 (12.30pm - 4.30pm)

Workshop II - Yoga Anatomy

Theory:
Skeletal variation
Function/aesthetics
Compression and tension
Analysis of a yoga pose

Practice:
Skeletal variation tests and practical consequences for yang yoga asanas and assists – such as lotus, shoulder stand, pigeon, down dog, warrior, etc.

We’ll analyse the following asanas in detail:
Lotus position        - external rotation of the hip joint
Reclining hero       -  internal rotation of the hip joint
Shoulderstand       - neck, shoulder, collarbone and shoulder blade

We'll discuss the following issues:

  • What restrictions does my individual bone structure impose on me?
  • How different is it from other people’s bone structure?
  • Will I or my students ever manage to get into the lotus position or achieve a “perfect” pigeon, etc?
  • Where are the areas of compression and tension within my individual bone structure? How do I deal with it? How can I stretch and stimulate the tissues, when compression is constricting me?
  • What is the physical function of a yoga pose?

Yin Yoga & Anatomy Teacher Training II - Golden Yogi, Auckland (in English)

"Tell me, and I will forget. Show me, and I may remember. Involve me, and I will understand." (Confucius)

Confucius’ saying reflects the emphasis of this particular Yin Yoga Teacher Training where the focus is on sensing, feeling, experiencing the yin yoga practice and the unique anatomy of our individual bone structure for ourselves.  You will be analysing yourselves and each other, conducting passive assists as well as experiencing compression and tension amongst your fellow students.  Through this very much hands on, practical approach your knowledge and understanding will be increased tenfold.



Welcome to Yin Yoga Teacher Training II
This 50-hour intensive certified yoga teaching programme (6 days) comprises 6 sections:

1. Yin yoga asanas

In this continuance of our yin yoga teacher training programme, we concentrate mainly on the 9 awareness points of functional yoga.


2. Anatomy is the key

As well as analysing compression, we’ll study the tension of the muscular and fascial tissues and the effect of these on the asana practice.  This will allow us to offer our students logical assists.


3. 7-point analysis principle for assists - theory

In this section of the training schedule, we’ll improve our knowledge of the 7-point analysis principle.
 

4. Application of the 7-point analysis principle – tests and analysis of assists/adjustments

In this element of the training programme, we’ll focus on applying the 7-point analysis principle for assists and – working with the student – study ways of analysing yoga poses on the basis of compression and tension, orientation of the joints, and proportions.

To do this, we’ll learn tests from the Yin Yoga and Anatomy Teacher Training I programme then apply them to our fellow students.

One special feature of this series of tests will be analysing a shoulder stand in detail. This is a sneak preview for the Yin Yoga and Anatomy Teacher Training level III programme, where we’ll focus on the upper body and extremities.


5. Passive Assists

In section 5 we learn passive, hand-on assists.


6. Yin Therapy - the therapeutic benefits of Yin Yoga

In YYTT II, we establish a basic understanding of how – using Yin Therapy's approach – we can employ the therapeutic elements of Yin Yoga to support our students’ individual and specific physical and emotional issues.

According to statistics, 25% of the yoga students who come to us took up yoga originally precisely because they have these specific problems.


Students must have completed Yin Therapy's Yin Yoga and Anatomy Teacher Training I course to be able to participate in Yin Yoga and Anatomy Teacher Training II.

This level II training is a certified stand-alone teacher training and is also the second of four modules that together make up Yin Therapy’s 200hour Yin Yoga & Anatomy Teacher Training.

On successful completion of all assignments and 100% attendance you will be awarded a 50 hour Yin Yoga & Anatomy Teacher Training certificate which may be counted towards our Yoga Alliance internationally recognised 200hr Yin Yoga & Anatomy Teacher Training certificate or recognised as continuing education hours or Yoga Alliance registered yoga teachers.

9:00pm 9:00pm

Yin Yoga - Skeletal Variations Workshop (English) - Auckland, New Zealand

Yin Yoga - Skeletal Variations Workshop - Golden Yogi, Auckland
(in English)

Following international yoga teacher (and fellow Paul Grilley student) Bernie Clark’s long awaited and hotly discussed book “Your Body, Your Yoga”, yoga students and teachers around the world are recognising the limitations (and potential harm) of the “one alignment for all” rule book.

In this 4hr intensive workshop, we will learn about individual bone structure, discover just how different our bone structures really are and how this has great significance in regards to the question of yoga alignment. When we understand the importance of respecting our individual bone structure, we realise the shortfall of classic alignment rules and the importance of finding our own individual alignment and consequently we will discover our own very individual and unique yoga asana practice – maximising the benefits and minimising the risk of injury.

We will conclude the workshop by taking our new knowledge on to the mat with a profound and deeply relaxing yin yoga class. Individual alignment is relevant for all styles of yoga asana, but with a yin yoga class we have the benefit of time while marinating in one pose, to explore our bones, our joints, our bodies to feel where they naturally want to align. We will discover that by respecting the individual alignment of our individual bodies, our yoga asana practice will become liberated.
