Marla Ericksen - TH1ERI
This intensive will introduce participants to the essential foundation practices of Yin yoga. While training will highlight the receptive Yin-style postures, complementary Yang yoga forms will be included to provide balance and context. We will study the purpose, method and effects of Yin yoga on the body, the heart and the mind. This intensive is designed to be both an introduction and immersion in Yin yoga. For teachers, this session will cultivate both confidence and competence in sharing the practice. It will also provide a solid platform for independent discovery of body-based consciousness through personal practice for any yogi. The entire session will be conducted through the lens of mindfulness in order to benefit from the immediate and lingering effects of Yin yoga in the larger context of life. This session is suitable for aspiring and certified yoga teachers, therapeutic practitioners, fitness professionals and dedicated yoga students who are interested in a comprehensive introduction to this profound collection of practices in universal balance, human energetics and spiritual evolution.
