Teacher Training Course Yoga Anatomy &  Yin Yoga 50H

Three principles for the yin practice.

  • Come into the pose to an appropriate depth
  • Resolve to remain still
  • Hold the pose for time (3 to 5 minutes on average)

Yin is an incredibly meditative practice, allowing space to be created and experienced in the body and the mind. Using the breath to calm the mind and in turn release the thoughts and bodily tension, finding comfort in the discomfort that may arise.

The Yin Yoga training is suitable for yoga students of all levels and teacher alike, who have an interest in exploring a complementary practice to the active, dynamic, yang, yoga styles. This training will strengthen both your knowledge about and your practice of yoga.

What you will learn:

Anatomy Bones, Muscles, and Poses

Suggested text: 

General Anatomy and the Musculoskeletal System by Schuenke, et al. Second Edition: ISBN 160406922

Course description: 

Unit 1 gives yoga instructors an alternate paradigm of teaching. It replaces the arbitrary and unscientific “rules of alignment” with the “14-10-7” paradigm of anatomically based functional analysis.

The Guiding Sutra: 

“14-10-7”. Explaining and applying this sutra is the heart of our program. The full sutra is:

“When you learn to see the body as 14 Skeletal Segments being moved by 10 Myofascial Groups you will be able to skillfully adapt the 7 Archetypal poses to suit every student.”

14 Skeletal Segments.

There are over 200 bones in the body but only 14 skeletal segments that are relevant to yoga practice. Once a teacher understands these 14 segments then all the various poses of yoga become transparent combinations of a few fundamental movements.

10 Myofascial Groups. 

There are over 600 muscles in the body but only ten primary muscle groups that are relevant to yoga practice. Once a teacher understands these ten muscle groups it is very easy to guide a student into the most effective variation of any pose.

7 Archetypal Poses. 

There are thousands of yoga poses but the vast majority of them are variations of seven archetypal poses. This is why ancient books on yoga listed so few postures. Understanding these seven archetypes is the key to teaching variations, using props, and making adjustments.

Our Lead teacher is a experienced teacher

International Senior teacher (RYT1200) Gil is a former athlete. He travels around the world with his teaching skills training professional athletes and educates teachers. He has been practicing Sports, (Iyengar, Ashtanga, Hatha & Yin) yoga & meditation for more than 20 years.

He is practicing his sports, yoga and meditation from an early age in life and studied movement science and lived with Lived with Traditional Himalayan Monks and  on a traditional ashram with Hindu monks.

Gil teaches a functional approach to understand the body in Yoga. An aesthetic approach to yoga focuses on how a pose looks, or worse, how it is “supposed” to look! A functional approach to yoga first determines what part of your body the pose was intended to exercise and then adapts the archetype to everyone’s unique skeleton.
