Yin vs Restorative Yoga Teacher Training - Sol Yoga Studio


Sol Yoga Studio in Frederick , MD

Dec 13th and 14th

Friday night 6:30 to 9:30pm - intro discussion, connection and team activities

Saturday 8 - 4:30pm - discussion, practices, lunch and short breaks

 

Learn and study the two passive practices of Yin and Restorative Yoga. Paige will lead you practices but there will also be discussion and hands on experience in small groups. 

Agenda:

*The history: How each practice was developed
*What makes them similar; what makes them different
*How they differ from Gentle or other Hatha Yoga classes
*Learn the benefits to the parasympathetic nervous system, joints, injuries, anxiety and stress

*Discuss Prop usage

*Contraindications students may have - pregnancy & injuries
*Ways to integrate these into your teachings even in more active (yang) yoga

*How to offer safe assists and adjustments

*Creating a safe environment for your class - tone, clothes, communication and why it is important

This will be a theory and practice training - part of the teacher training program. This is not a certification in either Yin or Restorative Yoga. Yet is helpful to anyone currently studying their 200 Hr Teacher Training.
