Yin Yoga Teacher Training
100 hour integrated training with Jade Wood
Join us on this 100 hour training that offers a closer perspective into the quiet side of yoga practice. Facebook event HERE.
This training initiates a journey of skilful listening for each participant as we get to know our body-mind connection and re-pattern our awareness through the practice of Yin Yoga. Slow, intentional, meditative movements allow us to open doors into the unseen realms. Deepening our ability to watch, wait and listen as the body slowly unfolds and reveals it’s wisdom. This course weaves in deep anatomical explorations for us to better understand and appreciate the spaces and connections beneath the skin. Using this as a template we can enrich our sensory understanding of our bodies in asana and also in daily life. There will also be components of somatic experiencing, body mapping and Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement as a special addition to this training which strengthens the neural network of the body map and prioritises transitioning between postures with utmost ease and enjoyment. Jade will also be including her years of experience as a bodyworker and mindfulness guide, incorporating mindful touch and energetic assists, theories of Traditional Chinese Medicine combined with facial and meridian theory and Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy and the art of guiding inner work.
This is a very special opportunity over two 5 days segments to listen in and reclaim space. Receive sensations allow stories long-held in the system to be gently revealed and released. Learn about your central nervous system and your habitual operating patterns, share your insights with your peers and enjoy practising in a deeply personal way that ignites and honours you as an individual.
Personal Yoga. Deep Embodiment. The lightness of Being.
