Yin and Restorative Yoga Techniques for Teachers
Weekend Immersion at The Yoga Spot, Aberdeen
Saturday 7th March: 10 am- 5 pm & Sunday 8th March: 10 am – 5 pm
Immerse yourself in a relaxing and informative weekend of yin and restorative yoga.
On the Saturday we will develop our understanding of yin yoga for our own personal practice and to share with our students. There will be a posture workshop, followed by a talk on the meridians and the 5-element theory in relation to yin yoga. We will also cover the sequencing of yin postures and how we can adapt the poses and offer alternatives and variations for our students, to make the practice as accessible as possible.
Everyone will have the chance to try out the postures in pair work and there will be plenty of time for questions.
On the Sunday we will focus on the deeply relaxing practice of restorative yoga. We will begin by experiencing the practice ourselves and we will go on to break down each pose, learning how to use props to support the body in each posture. We will also look at different ways to use the props for different people in a general class setting. We will discuss sequencing, length of time in the postures and other practicalities of teaching restorative yoga.
The course will give you the tools to deepen your own yin/restorative practice and to introduce a yin/restorative element to your general classes and with your 1-2-1 students.
The course is suitable for anyone who has completed their 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training and has an interest in Yin and Restorative Yoga.
