Welcome to the AkiraYoga – 20-hour accredited Yin Yoga Philosophy Teacher Training Certificate Course.
If you want the most comprehensive guide to understanding the Yin yoga practice entirely, & the PHILOSOPHY to this style of yoga, & how to apply these theoretical concepts to the Yin yoga system & postures, expand your practice to feel confident to teach these concepts to others, then this course is for you.
Chinese philosophy refers to yin & yang as two complementary energies that are interconnected & interdependent, creating all aspects of life. The Theory of the Five Elements within Chinese philosophy conceives the world as energetic phases of constant change. They reflect a deep understanding of natural law, the Universal order underlying all things in our world & represent how Qi, prana, or energy, moves throughout the body. When our Qi is flowing freely, the five elements are said to be in balance. But imbalances between the phases can cause the Qi to stagnate, become deficient, weak, excessive &/or destructive.
This course is designed for all levels, including beginners, intermediate & advanced yoga practitioners. Anyone interested in yin yoga or wanting to teach Yin yoga, Yoga teachers who would like to expand their skills, & health care practitioners who want to provide the therapeutic benefits of Yin yoga to their clients.
Akirayoga will gently guide you through the fundamental Philosophy aspects of Yin yoga within the theoretical lectures. We place the theory into our full-hour Element practices, with the step-by-step guidance of each pose and their variations to suit all body shapes & abilities. Offering intelligently built sequences & guided instructions that will allow you to settle into the practice without having to keep watching the screen. You can practice at your own pace in the comfort of your home & can come back to the course as often as desired.
