Yoga retreat in Sicily
Yin yoga is commonly known as a gentle yoga practice. However, there is much more than that to explore.
Yin yoga is a passive practice in contraposition to all other yang yoga styles (hatha, vinyasa, power, rocket). Being a slow practice that requires holding the poses for several minutes, it also becomes a meditation. Training the mind to develop a proper yin attitude in and out of your yoga mat practice is necessary.
Yin yoga is a modern style of yoga developed in the US by Paul Grilley; however, the physiology of yin yoga roots in ancient Chinese medicine. Therefore, Yin yoga is a fascinating and complex subject.
This training provides a complete and solid foundation of the theory and methodology of yin yoga and a good understanding of the principles of Chinese meridians theory.
The course also provides all the skillsets necessary to teach yin yoga confidently. You will learn all the primary yin yoga poses with their variations, the correct use of props, the use of the voice, and cueing.
Overall, this course will clarify the true essence of yin yoga and how to use this practice to bring balance and harmony into daily life and become a more complete and aware yoga teacher.
Furthermore, the training structure is as such to promote introspection and self-reflection to allow the students to go even deeper in their practice.
The beauty and quietness of the location also support the inner work and contribute to delivering an unforgettable and transformative experience.
