How has it been integrating this functional approach to yoga into your teaching and practice? We'll discuss questions and experiences that have arisen since Module 1. This segment continues our exploration of Yin Yoga asana and skeletal variations, this time focusing a bit more on bone proportion + torsion. Our asana study will include spinal twists, banana (side body), frog (groin) and dragon fly (inner leg). We'll learn how to use the wall in our yin practice as well as self-myofascial release techniques using therapy balls. Looking a bit deeper into the emotional and subtle energetic side of things we'll learn a bit more about the neuroscience behind our practice, in particular investigating the vagus nerve and mindfulness and breath practices that we can use to promote a more balanced nervous system. The module will also contain an overview of Assisted Yin Yoga as we learn how to more deeply work with an individual.
You can expect a balanced blend of lecture, personal practice, discussion and partner work. Upon completion of this course professionals will be eligible for 20 CEU's.
