Recognised Internationally by Yoga Alliance (YA)
Dates: Sunday 12th September 2021 @ 11.15am – 2.15pm
Studio: Canberra Yoga Space, Philip, Canberra (also live-streamed via Zoom)
This workshop is aimed at yoga teachers and dedicated practitioners. We will spend 3 hours exploring the application of Yin Yoga and Mindfulness as a way of nourishing and supporting the physical and energetic bodies, as well as the mind, during the season of Spring.
We will engage in a Yin Yoga sequence for balancing the Wood element during Spring (including focusing on the Liver and Gallbladder meridians). We will also explore ways of adapting and modifying the postures to account for skeletal variations and differences in body type as well as ways of supporting injuries while practicing.
Please bring a notebook and pen – this workshop is a mix of practice and theory to inspire your practice and refine your teaching skills. You will take home with you a seasonal handout with an adaptable/variable yin yoga sequence for Spring that you can use to help plan classes, as well as seasonal tips for embracing Spring in your yoga practice and daily life.
This workshop will be facilitated by Sarah Owen (Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Provider – YACEP). This Yin Yoga Teacher Workshop can count as professional development with Yoga Alliance (YA). You will receive a certificate of attendance that is recognised by Yoga Alliance International.
Please note: the number of attendees on this workshop will be strictly limited due to Covid19 requirements. Please register early. Due to Covid19 requirements, you will need to bring your own yoga mat and props (bolster, blanket and block) with you to the workshop. Cushions and towels can also be used to great effect if that is all you are able to bring with you on the day.
