ABOUT THE IMMERSION
Open to teachers on their 500hr pathway as well as dedicated students with a sincere interest in yin yoga.
This training is your gateway to exploring Traditional Chinese Medicine and yin yoga. Yin is continuing to grow in popularity and this training will establish the fundamentals of the practice and enable you to directly impact your personal practice and the lives of the students you teach. This immersion is all about slowing down, escaping your normal routine and creating space within.
This immersion is an introduction to applied anatomy and physiology, with a focus on understanding fascia and how this type of tissue works in the body. Start to understand Traditional Chinese Medicine and the basic meridian pathways, plus pranayama techniques designed to provide greater insight into The Self. You will not be the same teacher/student afterwards!
The immersion forms part of the 500hr teacher training pathway. If you are a 200hr qualified yoga teacher the program will hone your teaching skills to become a masterful yin yoga facilitator.
Students who complete 100% attendance will be awarded 30hrs towards gaining an Advanced 300hr training certified by Yoga Alliance + 30hrs towards certification with Yoga Australia. Only 200hr qualified Teachers will gain the certification but any student can participate in the training.
