Yin Yoga & Anatomy Teacher Training I - Yoga Centrum Erding (in German)
“Wherever you go, go with all your heart.” (Confucius)
In this 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
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.
