Yin Yoga & Anatomy Workshop (German) - Graz, AUSTRIA

Yin Yoga & Anatomy Workshop at Yuna Place Graz
(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: back class


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
Shoulder Stand       - 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?

Your life's profound purpose!

Why Are You Here is posed at the beginning of class to lend more depth and purpose to your yoga practice.
Why Are You Here awakens consciousness, urging you to respond.

But what is the underlying purpose of our yoga practice and our lives? Why are we here?

Theory
In an initial lecture, we delineate the yogic view of the question why we are here and explain what our purpose in this life could be!  

Meditation and Contemplation
During a guided meditation, we will touch on every area of your life as you meditate on the question:
"Why am I here?"

A deeply personal and intense experience!

Yin Yoga Asana Practice
We will conclude the afternoon session with a Yin Yoga asana practice guiding, and integrating the charged mental energy throughout our bodies. Yin Yoga has a mental, emotional, energetic and physical effect. Following this very personal and intensive mediation/contemplation, we can expect response in all areas of our lives.

Yin Yoga - The Six Senses

"Some people are so afraid to die that they never begin to live." - Henry Van Dyke

Many of us are not only afraid of dying!
Many of us are afraid of living and are stressed and overwhelmed from the constant changing state of emotions such as grief, anger, frustration, love, happiness. <
Many of us detest ourselves throughout life and criticise for example, our own bodies (too big, too thin, too tall, too small) covering up our deep-seated fears of being criticised, ridiculed or not being good enough.
A deep-seated feeling within us says "you are not (good) enough".

It appears that we simply have no idea how to live a happy life.

Instead of experiencing the miracle of life - our existence as part of nature, we distract ourselves from it and deal with life the best we can.

At the end of life, most of us are full of regret.

Author, songwriter and international speaker Bronnie Ware wrote a best-selling memoir “The Top Five Regrets of the Dying” after countless conversations with dying people with the five main regrets being:
1. I wish I'd had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me
2. I wish I hadn't worked so hard
3. I wish I'd had the courage to express my feelings
4. I wish I had stayed in touch with my friends
5. I wish that I had let myself be happier

In this Yin Yoga session, we explore the art of living through the six senses with which we perceive life!

We will discuss how to overcome our ignorance of the Queens and Kings (ourselves), how to deal with fear, frustration and anger and how to nourish one’s happiness through mindfulness.

We introduce a powerful tool, a sound which brings us back to the here and now - to live life in the present and without regrets in the future.

Yin Yoga & Anatomy Teacher Training I (German) - Vienna, AUSTRIA

to Sep 21

Yin Yoga & Anatomy Teacher Training I (German) - Vienna, AUSTRIA

Yin Yoga & Anatomy Teacher Training I - Power Yoga Vienna
(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.

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 (German) - Vienna, AUSTRIA

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.

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 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.

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 (German) - Vienna, Austria

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 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.

Yin Yoga & Anatomy Workshop (German) - Vienna, Austria

Yin Yoga & Anatomy Workshop (German) - Vienna, Austria

Yin Yoga & Yoga Anatomy Workshop at Power Yoga Vienna (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 practised.

Both 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
  • Headstand             - 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?
