Yin Yoga & Anatomy Teacher Training II - Planet Yoga, Zurich
"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 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 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 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 with Yoga Alliance.
