Yin Yoga & Anatomy Teacher Training I - Golden Yogi, Auckland
(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 Analysing 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 Analysing 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.
