Course Description


Yoga is inherently a wellness practice. In yoga, we find that by practicing the right yoga for each different phase of an individual's life we can maintain a healthy body and mind. These classes were designed to create a deeper knowledge of everyday yoga practices you can use to connect with your clients through normally occurring different stages of life that they may be dealing with. 

In this course we develop an understanding of the history, philosophy and practice of Yin Yoga. To practice Yin is to explore it's subtle energies and opposition in practice to our everyday asana which bring flexibility and strength to the body. Yin brings peace, ease and interception. Yin is complementary to Yang practices and helps to keep our being in balance, by nourishing what may be over worked or under served in our existing practice.
