Yin Yoga and Mindfulness as Therapy I

January 8, 2015 @ 8:00 am - January 11, 2015 @ 4:00 pm

| $800

The Yin Yoga and Mindfulness as Therapy is an 80 hour course covering the essential techniques of using Yin yoga and mindfulness meditation as yoga therapy. In this course we will detail the Fire phase, Wood phase, Metal phase, and Earth phase sequences from the Wisdom Method Yin yoga approach while learning vipassana {insight} and aspiration {heart-opening} meditations from the Buddhist traditions.


Yin Yoga and Mindfulness as Therapy I | 40 hours = Wood + Fire phase

Yin Yoga and Mindfulness as Therapy II | 40 hours = Earth + Metal phases


Weaving together the physical postures with attention to the inner mindscape enriches the practice of Yin yoga, allowing practitioners to experience the freedom of mindful awareness, active attention, and integrated healing.


Unique in this Yin yoga training is the emphasis on reshaping the connective tissue to develop more freedom in movement and comfort in stillness. As such, we will look at body posture, postural archetypes, and posture in action {“acture”}, then apply the Yin yoga postures as good medicine to initiate change throughout the entire embodied energy system. Mock case studies, self-directed inquiry, and practical application of concepts are integral parts of this training.


This course is open to all interested yoga teachers who would like to enrich their understanding of Yin yoga as therapy. The Wisdom Method 20-hour course Foundations of Yin yoga is a suggested pre-requisite though prior experience with Yin yoga is also adequate.


This training is taught in 2 40-hour intensives. Although you can take the intensives in any order, it is suggested that you take Yin Yoga as Therapy I before Yin Yoga as Therapy II. It is recommended that serious students attend both portions. Those who attend the full 100-hours of Yin training – Foundations of Yin Yoga {20 hours}, Yin Yoga and Mindfulness as Therapy I {40 hours} and Yin Yoga as Mindfulness as Therapy II {40 hours} – with the Wisdom Method School of Yoga will receive a certification in Yin Yoga and may register on the national directory for Yin teachers.
