Yin Yoga Education
YIN YOGA EDUCATION
Yin yoga is a slow-paced style of yoga with set asanas that are held for longer periods of time, and allow to apply gentle tension and compression to our tissues. The whole point of Yin practice is to relax the muscles as much as possible, and hence to target the deeper connective tissues - especially fascia, our "spiderweb".
Yin Yoga is based on TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine), and therefore intensively works with meridians and acupressure points targeting our organs and balancing the 5 Elements: Water, Wood, Fire, Earth and Metal.
Yin yoga focuses on the uniqueness of the individual.
It accumulates the energies which flow through the body and releases them, after each practice, to enhance the flow of energy and disperse potential blockages.
Yin Yoga brings our focus more inwards, and can be an excellent bridge towards meditation, or can be a meditation itself.
Why this is not a teacher training:
At this point you can probaly choose from a few hundred of Yoga teacher trainings. The one better than the other. After only a few hours you stand with a piece of paper in your hand and you may call yourself yoga teacher. (Actually, you may have never participated in a yoga class or done any kind of yoga and/or meditation and call yourself a yoga instructor, as it is not a protected profession).
In the past, also at De Yoga Studio you could participate in various teacher training courses, but we do not want to contribute to this almost epidemic proliferation of so-called yoga trainings.
In order to be a yoga teacher it is important that you yourself have been a student for years.
From there we believe that a good teacher can develop.
Do you have the patience, devotion and devotion to be a student first, who knows that this is the program you are looking for.
Not everyone has the (financial) possibilities to make multiple "pilgrims-trips" to India, which is why we want to make it possible for those students to get to know authentic Yoga in the Netherlands.
Because we do believe in the power of real authentic Yoga.

Content of full Program
- Asana: main major groups of Yin yoga poses with all variations and modifications
This section covers the theory and practice for 20 yin yoga poses, including their specific characteristics and their effects.
One of the main elements of our yin yoga education is, understandably, the asana practice, so each day we will give at least one 120-minute class.
- Anatomy in the context of Yin Yoga
Anatomical understanding of not only the individual bone structure but also the muscular, connective, fascial and ligament tissues is an essential prerequisite for a yoga student.
The backbone of yin yoga (in the style of Paul and Suzee Grilley) – and thus of our Yin Yoga Education programme – will be anatomy.
In this training, we will start or refresh our basic knowledge (depending on your anatomy knowledge) and concentrate mainly on the individual bone structure (compression) and unique muscular, ligament and fascial tissues (tension) of each student. t
This understanding of how to look deeper into the human body, to see the human as a moving skeleton, to read him by observing the way he or she moves and to be able to identify which joints are involved in a yoga pose, as well as where movement or suppleness is required for the pose and to what extent, helps us recognise why some yoga students can hold a position and others cannot.
We develop an understanding of why each person practises yoga poses in a different way.
We recognise that even when two people look the same from the outside, they feel each pose differently.
