In March you have the unique opportunity to study with an amazing yoga teacher, Joe Barnett.
Joe, ERYT-500, has been teaching for over a decade. Joe’s main focus is Functional Anatomy for Yoga. He is a senior student and teaching assistant of Paul Grilley, a true Yoga Scientist responsible for the rise in popularity of Yin Yoga. After years of apprenticing under Paul, Joe began traveling internationally to train yoga teachers.
When not training teachers, Joe’s play time is spent practicing, teaching and drawing others into AcroYoga.
Program – Yin Yoga & Anatomy: Understanding A Practice Of Surrender
23-27 March, 2015
5 Days/ 30h Teacher Training (Yoga Alliance Certification)
Yin Yoga is a simple practice. We settle into an asana for 3-7 minutes and slowly relax to allow the connective tissues to be stretched, stimulated and strengthened.
The alignment rules are also simple: We listen to our bodies and lead ourselves into the shape that follows the natural contours of our spine, pelvis and hips.
However, bringing ourselves into this simplicity, being still for minutes at a time, can be challenging. Listening to our bodies requires a power of discrimination.
In this training, we will analyze, observe and practice all of these elements of Yin Yoga in depth.
We will examine ourselves with ancient meditation techniques that guide us into a steady awareness. We will study with slides and by articulating the joints on a skeleton. But mostly, we will have an interactive, hands-on study and examine each other with anatomical range of motion (ROM) tests.
The study culminates in a truer understanding of the infinite variety of human bodies, and the basic techniques to guide each Yin Yoga student with their unique skeletal structures into the appropriate asana for them.
Date: 23-27 March at 10:00-17:00 daily
