The Art of Yin Yoga: 20-Hour YACEP Certified Course

Registration is closed, but please check other Detroit Yoga Lab Events

In this hands-on training you will learn to analyze, observe, practice and teach the Yin Yoga Postures in depth. We will dive into the delicate art of deciphering functional vs. aesthetic alignment through analysis of bone images showing common variations. More importantly, we will study each other and throughout our time together, learn how to provide support, modifications, alternatives in yin yoga classes. 

Further, we will study anatomy of muscle/fascial lines and corresponding pathways of subtle energy according to the tradition and discuss the multi-layered electrical and emotional responses stimulated by this deeply surrendering practice. This course culminates in a truer understanding and better appreciation for the endless variety of human bodies and how to use yin yoga to support overall physical and energetic wellbeing.

Course Highlights
  • Interactive hands-on study of anatomy: finding skeletal landmarks, assessing range of motion, how to effectively use props
  • Understanding and discriminating sensation: Tension vs. Compression, Muscle vs. Fascia, Physical vs. Subtle Energy
  • Communication: When to listen + observe, when to speak + lead, how to offer gracious support
  • Learn to sequence for Yin + Practice 10 sequences with a variety of focuses: workplace stagnation, low back pain, subtle energy shift, full body exploration, healthy hips, etc.
