Yin Yoga & Anatomy Teacher Training (level 1)
Based on the teachings of Paul Grilley

Enrich, enhance and deepen your knowledge with Yin Yoga & Anatomy Teacher Training in Amsterdam at DelightYoga.

This teacher training will add new, and deepen existing knowledge to that which you have already acquired in the Fundamentals of Yin Yoga & Anatomy and  the Anatomy for Yoga workshops and or other Yoga Teacher Trainings.  


During this teacher training you will practice and learn how to analyse, teach and adjust the most common Yin Yoga asanas to students with differing physical possibilities. You will deepen your awareness of the importance, the functions and the effects of each Yin Yoga asana (physical and energetic). You will be introduced to Yoga ethics, and to Yin Yoga philosophy originating in China and India. Furthermore you will learn extensively about anatomy and physiology. Consisting of: an analysis of the differences in bodies, a study of the fundamental bones & joints, definitions of movements and the most important muscles & connective tissues that get strengthened and stretched in yoga poses. This anatomical knowledge is not only useful in teaching yoga classes, but also makes clear how you use your body in your personal yoga practice and in other sports that you might do.

The Yin Yoga & Anatomy Teacher Training is a good basis for teaching Yin Yoga classes and very complementary to all yoga styles or meditation techniques. The training is suited for anyone who wants to deepen and enhance their knowledge and experience of yoga and to those who want to expand their professional skills as a yoga teacher. It's also open to other sports-professionals who want to expand their knowledge.

Yin Yoga is a deep meditative practice consisting of mainly floor poses in which you stimulate, restore and expand the original range of movement of the connective tissues.
