LIVE online Yin Yoga Teacher Training with TJ

LIVE Online Yin Yoga Teacher Training (Level 1)
This will be an experience filled with unique opportunity to learn and go deep with your practice with direct 1-on-1 time with TJ and to be among a group of likeminded learners.Submerge yourself into a Yin Yoga Training and learn to share the subtle meditative qualities of this practice. Created from a blend of the ethereal sciences of the East and the material sciences of the West Yin Yoga is all about balance.This training uses lecture and guided practice to develop a conceptually diverse understanding with extensive first-hand experience.Yin Yoga brings your awareness through the tissues of your body releasing tension layer by layer. Becoming well versed in Yin Yoga is like being able to apply a deep tissue massage to your body with your mind. Making that experiential connection to all you have heard or read about Chi you can begin to find a new way to experience your body.
This curriculum emphasises the balance between Eastern (ethereal) and Western (material) sciences. With an in depth exploration of meditation, subtle anatomy and physical anatomy learn to teach the subtle qualities of Yin Yoga. Using lectures and guided practice you will develop your own strategies for teaching and working with students to guide them to listen to their body. The deeper you go with your training and self-exploration the more you can help students learn from their own bodies to create a deep tissue massage with their mind.
*** No previous experience required, this training is suitable for beginners to Yin or Yoga in general, those who just want to deepen their practice and/or for those experienced with Yin who want more insight to teach.
WHAT WILL BE INVOLVED IN THIS ONLINE FORMAT?
TJ is very excited about presenting the material in new & unique ways not previously offered in the trainings and is quickly selecting all of the best options that will be added, some of which are below:
In addition to the usual group time for all of the content and guided sessions, each trainee will be scheduled for their own live 1-on-1 meeting with TJ to ask questions that come up for you, your needs and goals regarding teaching & practicing Yin Yoga.
Additional digital content will be provided and designed specifically for this training for you to view on your device or print out.
A shared learning group will be created for us to communicate and nurture our class community.
A deep cultivation of your home practice will be explored and specifically elaborated on since we are…well stuck at home 🙂
In addition to our scheduled training days when TJ does come to Bristol for next year’s offerings this online group, and only this group, may attend a weekend mini-training and social event at no additional cost. Here we will have a Yin/Yogi movie night, review what we learned, ask questions & practice teaching, culminating in a formal Closing Circle and group photos 😄
