Yin Yoga Certification
Beloved Yin Yoga Certification
25 hours (18 weekend hours & 7 hours mentoring)
Beloved Yoga has developed a unique Yin Yoga program that keeps its roots in the philosophy and practice of Yoga. The traditional Yin model, based on Taoism, (yin/yang/Tao) will be mirrored by the Gunas of Yoga (Tamas/Rajas/Sattva) in this workshop. In addition to exploring Yoga philosophy as it relates to Yin Yoga practice, teaching skills will be developed as you gain insight into the Beloved Yin Yoga Intelligent Sequence, which includes instruction in teaching methodology as you learn the traditional Yin Yoga poses. These skills can be used to sequence your own personal Yin Yoga practice or to teach Yin Yoga classes.
An in-depth study and discussion on fascia and joints will be the primary focus of enhancing your understanding of anatomy. There will also be time allocated to explore the vibration of silence and stillness in personal practice and in teaching.
In the Beloved Yin Yoga Mentoring Program you will:
Take 2, Observe 2 and Teach 2 Yin Yoga classes
Write a reflective paper on your takeaways from the training, taking, observing and teaching yin
Attend 1 private mentoring session with a Beloved Yin Yoga mentor
Upon completion of the mentoring program requirements, you will receive a Yin Yoga Certificate from Beloved Yoga.
This workshop is open to yoga practitioners interested in deepening their yoga practice and yoga teachers looking to add a new skill set to their teaching toolkit. The 30-hour Yin Yoga Certification counts towards Yoga Alliance continuing education hours.
