Anatomy & Yin Yoga Teacher Training Part 1 (100 hours)
Based on the teachings of Paul Grilley

Enrich, enhance and deepen your knowledge and Yin yoga practice with the Anatomy & Yin Yoga Teacher Training Part 1, at "De Yoga Studio" in Eindhoven. - Also great for yoga teachers.

This 100-hour Anatomy & Yin Yoga Teacher Training Part 1, is part of the 200-hour Yin Yoga Teacher Training (recognised by Yoga Alliance -YA).

During the teacher training you will learn and experience the healing benefits of Yin yoga on a physical, emotional and mental level. Besides deepening your own Yin yoga practice and personal development, on finishing part one of the training, you will be ready to teach safe Yin yoga classes. In addition, you will be introduced to the basic principles of Taoism and Chinese Medicine.

The intensive study of anatomy and physiology, along with extensive practical exercises with fellow students, will reveal the uniqueness of the human body and the different ranges of movement of every individual. Range of movement may be due to stiffness of the body tissues, or be caused by skeletal compression, which is determined by the shape of your bones. You will discover how both causes will influence the way you perform yoga poses, and the way you teach. Such understanding, enables you to practice and teach the poses in a personal, conscious and functional way, and striving for the ideal “picture” of a yoga pose is no longer important. In this way, not only do you enhance your anatomical knowledge theoretically, but practically it will also provide space for creativity, as well as infinite possibilities in guiding your (future) students.

Furthermore, you will also study the muscles and fascia of the hips, torso and legs. Focusing on these muscle groups is a guideline for the analysis and practice of 20 Yin postures. By studying the bones and joints of the skeleton and their corresponding joint movements, you will also learn how to strengthen and stimulate the different connective tissue types in a healthy manner.

During the training there will be a daily Yin yoga practice, as well as extensive experimenting with teaching, sequencing, adjusting and the usage of props.

Part 1 focuses mainly on the physical aspect of the practice, providing a strong and solid foundation for teaching and adjusting Yin yoga poses. In Part 2, the second half of the training, gives greater emphasis to the subtle aspects (energetic, emotional and mental) of a Yin yoga practice.

During both parts of the 200 hour training, experimenting and reflecting on both your personal Yin yoga and meditation practice will be continuously encouraged. The progress of your practice will be supported with guidance.
