Adjustment workshop for Yin Yoga

Practice, deepen and improve your adjusting skills and knowledge of how to use props for the upper body Yin yoga poses with this workshop!

During this practical weekend you will have intensive practice of adjusting and using props for the 15 upper body Yin yoga poses. 

The weekend’s objective is to deepen and repeat the functions and accompanying cues of the upper body Yin yoga poses with their anatomical principles. Why is this so essential? The cues, principles and functions form the basis for teaching Yin yoga classes, and for providing personalised and creative adjustments for your current and/or future students; whose physical abilities will be individual and varied.

On Friday night we will revise and repeat the theoretical anatomical principles and concepts (upper body muscles, joints and movements), finishing with a one-hour Yin yoga practice, leaving you well-prepared for the practical  weekend ahead. Saturday and Sunday will begin with a one-hour Yin yoga practice, to start your day in a Yin manner, and to recognise the functional descriptions and adjustments of the poses. After a short break we will look at adjustments and prop usage for the 15 upper body Yin yoga poses, both individually as well as in small groups.

- Please bring your own yogamat.
- Some easy-to-carry props such as: blanket, blocks, a belt and a pillow or bolster. Consider what you may need during your Yin yoga practice.
- Yin Yoga is a passive form of yoga where we don’t generate much heat through asanas. So keep yourself warm and comfortable, wear layers, warm socks and if you get cold easily you might want to bring a blanket with you.

- Bring a fluid-container that you can close. Open containers with fluids are not allowed in the yogaroom.




To be well prepared for this workshop, it is advisable to study the following: 

- The "additional notes" in the reader. 

- The muscles and the muscle group names of the ‘Torso and Thigh Mandalas’ and the muscles of the upper body the 'Walkabout'. 

- The movements of the joints. Not only the names of the movements, but also the number of possible movements that each individual joint can make. 

- The notes and/or assignment on 'functions and cues for the 15 upper body Yin yoga poses. Think of: stretch, compression (wanted/unwanted) and the desired target areas of the poses.

* If you have taken a different Yin Yoga Teacher Training, you will have to look up the muscles that belong to the muscle groups of the ‘Torso and Thigh Mandalas’ and the upper body 'Walkabout' - see reader. Also revisit the cues you use for the 15 upper body Yin yoga poses. 


After adequate completion of all contact hours (15 hours) and homework assignments (10 hours) you can receive a certificate of 25 hours.
