An Exploration of Yin Yoga, Yang Yoga and Everyday Mindfulness for Dedicated Practitioners and Yoga Teachers

This training will introduce students to the experiential and philosophical application of the receptive Yin style of practicing yoga. To provide context and contrast, we will also investigate a dynamic Yang style of practice using both Taoist and vinyasa forms. We will explore the purpose, method and effects of these contemplative practices on the body, the heart and the mind through the lens of mindfulness meditation. This intensive will cultivate confidence and competence for sharing the practice as a teacher and also provide a solid foundation for home practice.
