Weekend One: Yin Fundamentals (July 7-9)
In this training we discuss some of the fundamental questions of Yin Yoga:
What does it mean to set up a posture in a Yin way?
What does a target area approach to posture mean?
How do I cue my students (or guide myself) in and out of Yin postures and help them find the right amount of sensation in the pose?
Why are there so many different choices and variations in Yin?
How much anatomy do I need to know to teach Yin?
How does the Yin approach influence muscle and connective tissue?
Am I simply stretching tissues or is there more going on in a Yin pose?
What am I supposed to pay attention to during all that time in a posture?
Will Yin Yoga help me meditate?
Through lecture, demonstrations, and practice we will cover the foundational anatomy and philosophy of Yin and the basic Yin postures. Much of our time is spent in the "Posture Lab" where we experiment with each posture and consider why someone might be limited in a pose or struggling to feel sensation in the target area. In the lab you will explore creative ways to vary or modify postures and learn how to support yourself or your students so that the Yin postures are safe, sustainable, and effective.
Who is this training for?
For yoga teachers and students alike.
For yoga teachers, learning the Yin method can make you a more knowledgable and versatile yoga teacher and help you reach a more diverse group of students.
For yoga students, learning the Yin method can help you understand how your own body moves (or how and why it gets stuck!) so you can restore areas of your body compromised by over-training, injury, or a more sedentary lifestyle.
Since 2009 Jennifer has been mentored by Yin Yoga founder Paul Grilley, completing his foundational courses and advanced studies in the Bhagavad Gita and Patanjali. She has additional Yin training with Sarah Powers. Seeking greater understanding of the human form, Jennifer studies with leading fascia researcher and educator Tom Myers and dissected a human cadaver under the instruction of Gil Hedley.
Jennifer is a life-long athlete and loves movement in all forms, from the quiet stillness of Yin to the explosive power of weightlifting. Her classes combine fluid movements and still postures and she loves to find new ways to use props!
