30-Hour Yin Yoga Training

with Debbie Daly
Feb 16-20, 2017

11am-5pm on Thursday & Friday
12-6pm on Saturday & Sunday
11am-5pm on Monday

Discover the subtle and intuitive power of yin yoga in this 30-hour immersion. Through a unique series of long-held, relaxing floor postures, yin yoga balances the nervous system, heals joint tissues, and increases our capacity for experiencing calm and peace. This training enhances your understanding of the mechanics of the body and its subtle energies in a way that applies to all forms of yoga and movement. Participants will gain an in-depth understanding of yin yoga postures, anatomy, and theory. The training is open to all members of the community who wish to explore this deep practice, and to yoga teachers interested in adding yin yoga to their skillset.

Students will gain a comprehensive overview of the essential yin yoga postures and their variations, plus sequencing, propping and assisting. The postures will be studied with a focus on anatomical variations, and students will gain insights into the workings of the muscles and joints.

The curriculum includes a study of how the postures relate to the energetic meridians of Chinese medicine. Yang yoga will also be explored – this is the active, strengthening counterpart to yin yoga.

The training also addresses some of the deeper questions that arise in yin yoga, like how deeply a yogi should go, reactions to pain, and the many therapeutic applications of yin yoga.

Each day will include slide show presentation, discussion, interactive demonstrations, and a deep yin asana practice.

Debbie Daly, E-RYT 500, is a senior yin yoga teacher with extensive training under Paul Grilley. Her website is www.yinpractice.com.
