Welcome to Yin Yoga & Anatomy Teacher Training Level III !!!

“A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” (Lao-tzu)

This intensive level III 50-hour training is a certified stand-alone teacher training course and is also the third of four modules that make up Yin Therapy’s 200hour Yoga Alliance accredited Yin Yoga & Anatomy Teacher Training.
It is created for all yoga teachers and dedicated students who wish to delve deeper into Yin Yoga – the quiet practice and increase their knowledge on the anatomic and energetic theories of the practice.
In this course, we complete the yin yoga practice and yoga anatomy theory, in that we focus on the individual bone structure, muscles and facial chains of the upper body and then shift our focus towards energy work, chi flow and yoga philosophy.
This 6 day / 50-hour certified intensive yoga teaching course comprises 5 sections:
1. Yin Yoga Asanas
In this level III course, we concentrate on the upper body eg. shoulder, scapula, shoulder/neck, wrists and as in level II, on the many variations of relevant poses. Furthermore, with special techniques, we begin to discover, experience and differentiate between blood, breath, nerves and chi flow within our own bodies.
2. Blood, Nerves, Breath, Chi
Heartbeat, blood circulation, nerve impulses, breath circulation are fluctuations within the body that can distract one’s ability to sense the underlying chi flow and can often be misinterpreted by many experienced yoga practitioners for the chi flow eg. mistaking blood circulation for chi flow.
We delve into the anatomical function of the blood, nerves breath and clarify how to consciously feel blood, nerves, breath with practical exercises, to enable us to place these sensations to the periphery. What remains is chi.
3. Energy, Mantras & Philosophy
In this module, we begin our journey into energy work, mantras & yoga philosophy and become familiar with the teachings of reincarnation, karma, the 3 realms, Patanjali’s sutras, tantric chakra teachings, nadis (meridian theory) & mantra work.
Here is where we discover the key to our true spiritual growth.
4. Yoga Anatomy
In YYTT III, we learn the muscle groups of the upper body, their function and explore in detail various aspects eg. rotator cuff, scapula etc.
We analyse compression and tension of the shoulder joint and explain and show its relevance to yang yoga asanas (Downward Facing Dog, Warrior), to demonstrate how individual bone structure not only limits and affects our Yin Yoga asana practice.
5. Yin Therapy
In YYTT II, we established a fundamental understanding of how Yin Yoga can enhance and restore balance for ourselves and our students from a physical and mental aspect.
In YYTT III, we delve deeper. Topics of study include yin and yang analysis and programmes, looking into the synergy of body and mind and how work, relationships, life’s circumstances, environment, eating behaviour, sports activities, etc. affect our wellbeing. We discuss the cause of disease, attachment, judgement, criticism of ourselves and of others and how to initiate changes of patterns, beliefs, programmes, values.
