Yoga Moves Utrecht 2018 Anatomy Yin Yoga Teacher Training part 2

Anatomy & Yin Yoga Teacher Training – Part 2 with Jose de Groot

Immerse yourself in the energetic and emotional aspects of Yin Yoga in Part 2 of the Anatomy & Yin Yoga Teacher Training (part of the 200-hour Yin Yoga training, certified by Yoga Alliance -YA).

During the 200-hour teacher training you will learn and experience the healing benefits of Yin yoga at a physical, emotional and mental level. Part 1 (100 hours) you have focused mainly on the physical aspects (movements, skeleton and muscles) of the practice, which provides a solid foundation for teaching and adjusting Yin yoga poses. In continuation to that knowledge, in Part 2 (100 hours) you will learn and experiment with the energetic, emotional and healing benefits of Yin Yoga.

As an in-depth exploration of Chinese Medicine, you will study the meridian pathways and their connection to the organs and the elements (water, wood, fire, earth, metal), providing insight into the energetic structure and healthy functioning of the body and mind. In addition, you will learn to recognise various forms of Chi, emotional, physical and mental reactions, and determine whether they are in balance. The practice will allow you to balance any blockage, excess or deficiency of Chi in the meridian, from within the Yin yoga poses.

Besides exploring the energetic anatomy (meridians and Chi), you will study the connective tissues, organs, brain and spinal cord. This anatomical knowledge provides a deeper understanding to explain Chi and the meridians; as well as the important energetic and emotional effect they may have on your (future) students.

As well as revising the muscles of the thigh and torso, in Part 2 you will also learn the muscles of the upper body. This newly obtained energetic and anatomical knowledge will be applied to the 20 Yin poses analysed in part 1, and the 10 new Yin poses that you will examine in Part 2.

In addition to a daily yin yoga and meditation practice, you will also have extensive practical experience of teaching, sequencing, adjusting and the usage of props. On completion of Part 2 you will be able to teach safe, personal and in-depth Yin yoga classes. This new knowledge of meridians, chi and Chinese Medicine will also deepen your individual Yin yoga practice, and personal development.

Part 2 encourages continuous experimentation and reflection in both your personal Yin yoga and meditation practice, with on-going guidance and support of your personal progress and practice. Furthermore, you will study parts of the Yoga Sutras and begin to explore Chakra Theory and Chakra meditation as taught by Dr. Motoyama and Paul Grilley.
