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.
