Yin Yoga & Anatomy Workshop (German) - Hamburg, GERMANY

Yin Yoga & Anatomy Workshop at Unit Yoga Hamburg
(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.

Yin Yoga Weekend Immersion (English) - New Plymouth, NEW ZEALAND
Dec
1
to Dec 2

Yin Yoga Weekend Immersion (English) - New Plymouth, NEW ZEALAND

Yin Yoga Weekend Immersion with Sanctuary Hill, New Plymouth (in English)

This Yin Yoga Weekend Immersion is suitable for yoga teachers and also yoga students

Saturday 1 December
Morning Session (11.00am - 2.30pm)
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.


Afternoon Session (3.30pm - 6.30pm)
in Yoga - Why Are You Here?

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.

This asana practice can be challenging on all levels!

Are you ready to encounter your true self?


Sunday 2 December
Morning Session (9.00am - 12.00pm)

Yin Yoga - Skeletal Variations Workshop (English) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA

  • 726 High Street Armadale, VIC, 3143 Australia (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Yin Yoga - Skeletal Variations Workshop - Flying Masters, Melbourne (in English)

Following international yoga teacher (and fellow Paul Grilley student) Bernie Clark’s long awaited and hotly discussed book “Your Body, Your Yoga”, yoga students and teachers around the world are recognising the limitations (and potential harm) of the “one alignment for all” rule book.

We will discuss skeletal variation, see for ourselves just how different our bone structures really are and in doing so, discover the shortfall of classic alignment rules. When we understand the importance of respecting our own unique bone structure, we can determine our own individual alignment and consequently discover our own very unique yoga asana practice – maximising the benefits and minimising the risk of injury.

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 will 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 will 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?


The hours from this workshop can be used towards Continuing Education with Yoga Alliance for registered teachers.

The journey from the gross to the subtle body.

Yin Yoga & Anatomy Workshop (German) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND
Apr
10
11:00 PM23:00

Yin Yoga & Anatomy Workshop (German) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND

Yin Yoga & Anatomy Workshop at Das Yoga Haus, Zurich
(in German)

This workshop is suitable for yoga teachers and also yoga students wishing to learn more about yin yoga and yoga anatomy.

“Wherever you go, go with all your heart.” (Confucius)

Our workshop will begin with a lecture explaining the physical practice of yin yoga and the positive affects of the practice on stress and back pain.

Content

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”


WARNING: Individual Bone Structure!
Understanding individual bone structure means avoiding injuries!

In the second hour, our focus will shift to the anatomy of yoga. Following international yoga teacher (and fellow Paul Grilley student) Bernie Clark’s long awaited and hotly discussed book release in 2016 “Your Body, Your Yoga”, yoga students and teachers around the world are recognising the limitations (and potential harm) of the “one alignment for all” rule book.

The quintessence of the book: "There is no classical alignment, only individual alignment."

Leslie Kaminoff, international yoga anatomy teacher and fellow ambassador for individual alignment says "Asanas have no alignment. People have alignment. There is no correct universal alignment!"

We will discuss skeletal variation, see for ourselves just how different our bone structures really are and in doing so, discover the shortfall of classic alignment rules. When we understand the importance of respecting our own unique bone structure, we can determine our own individual alignment and consequently discover our own very unique yoga asana practice – maximising the benefits and minimising the risk of injury.

Theory:
Skeletal variation
Function/aesthetics
Compression and tension
Analysis of a yoga pose

Practice:
We’ll analyse the following asanas in detail:
Lotus position        - external rotation of the hip joint
Reclining hero       -  internal rotation of the hip joint


In the second half of the workshop, we will offer a yin yoga asana class for the back to experience the deep affects of the profound practice. 

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.

Practice:
90 - 120 minute Yin yoga class(Paul Grilley style)
Focus: back class

Schedule:
1.30pm - 5.30pm

Fee
CHF 100

Location: 
Das Yoga Haus, Freyastrasse 6a, 8004 Zürich

9:00 PM21:00

Yin Yoga - Skeletal Variations Workshop (English) - Auckland, New Zealand

Yin Yoga - Skeletal Variations Workshop - Golden Yogi, Auckland
(in English)

Following international yoga teacher (and fellow Paul Grilley student) Bernie Clark’s long awaited and hotly discussed book “Your Body, Your Yoga”, yoga students and teachers around the world are recognising the limitations (and potential harm) of the “one alignment for all” rule book.

In this 4hr intensive workshop, we will learn about individual bone structure, discover just how different our bone structures really are and how this has great significance in regards to the question of yoga alignment. When we understand the importance of respecting our individual bone structure, we realise the shortfall of classic alignment rules and the importance of finding our own individual alignment and consequently we will discover our own very individual and unique yoga asana practice – maximising the benefits and minimising the risk of injury.

We will conclude the workshop by taking our new knowledge on to the mat with a profound and deeply relaxing yin yoga class. Individual alignment is relevant for all styles of yoga asana, but with a yin yoga class we have the benefit of time while marinating in one pose, to explore our bones, our joints, our bodies to feel where they naturally want to align. We will discover that by respecting the individual alignment of our individual bodies, our yoga asana practice will become liberated. 

Fee
NZ$80

9:00 AM09:00

Yin Yoga & Anatomy Workshop (English) - Napier, New Zealand

Yin Yoga & Anatomy Workshop at Modern Yoga Napier
(English)

“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.

This workshop is suitable for yoga teachers and also yoga students wishing to experience and learn more about Yin Yoga and yoga anatomy.

  • Skeletal variation
  • Function/aesthetics
  • Compression and tension
  • Analysis of a yoga pose

Yin Yoga Masterclass - The Anatomy of Back Pain (English) - Auckland, New Zealand

Yin Yoga Masterclass - The Anatomy of Back Pain at Golden Yogi, Auckland (in English)

Lower back pain is the most prevalent of musculoskeletal conditions and its impact is pervasive. It affects hundreds of millions of people around the world. 80% of adults experience back pain at least once a year. It is the most common cause of job-related disability and a leading contributor to missed work days.

In this 4 ½ hour Yin Yoga intensive masterclass – The Anatomy of Back Pain, we will examine lower back pain – from a physiological and psychological perspective.

You will learn about fascia – the “yin” tissue - the integral role it plays in the lower back, the importance of fascial fitness for maintaining a mobile and pain free body and why Yin Yoga is considered to be a highly effective, therapeutic method to help relieve and/or cure back pain.

The “backbone” of Yin Yoga is yoga anatomy from a functional perspective. You will learn about skeletal variation, the limitations of alignment and the importance of recognising your own unique bone structure and subsequently discovering your own unique yoga asana practice.

You will then experience a deeply relaxing Yin Yoga class for the back. You will be guided within, to listen to your body and learn how to modify the asanas to respect your individual bone structure. You will come away from this masterclass with a new appreciation and understanding for the wonder that is your back.

This masterclass is suitable for teachers and students alike, who want to discover how a little Yin Yoga Love can go a long way to healing back pain forever.

TIME: 11:30am - 4:00pm
FEE: NZ$90

Content:

Theory: Summary of the syllabus for the 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 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.

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?

Yin Yoga & Anatomy Workshop (English) - New Plymouth, New Zealand

Yin Yoga & Anatomy Workshop (English) - New Plymouth, New Zealand

Yin Yoga & Yoga Anatomy Workshop at The Yoga Space, New Plymouth
(in English)

“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.
