25-Hour Yin Certification: Dragonfly & Swan Archetypes
This certification is designed to give a broad overview of the Yin Yoga practice. It is in the first in a series of 4 Fundamental Modules offered by Joe that builds towards a 100-hour certification. This course has the potential to give the budding Yin teacher the knowledge and courage needed to offer a safe and simple sequence of postures. This particular module, Swan & Dragonfly, focuses more deeply on teaching techniques for postures that target the outer and inner hips.
The coursework includes:
#1: Listen to the body and lead it into a shape, a posture, that follows the body’s unique contours. We will learn how and where to “listen” (i.e. observe) the body and mind’s responses to effects of poses.
#2: Be still and surrender. We will discuss and practice some of the meditative techniques involved.
#3: Rebound. Passively observe and then actively manipulate the flow of energy (i.e. chi, prana, “life force”) released on the exit of a Yin pose.
The study culminates in a better appreciation for the endless variety of humankind, and a set of practical tools to successfully lead a full class, or to dialogue with an individual, and the wisdom to know which type of discourse is required.
