50 HR Yin Yoga Teacher Training


Join Cora Geroux, Liz Bennett & Em Cruickshank for an anatomy informed, 7 Day - 50 HR Yin Yoga Practice Immersion & Teacher Training. 

Just as the light cannot exist without the dark, yang cannot exist without yin. Yin yoga offers us a balancing force in our yoga practice in relation to the strong dynamic styles of yoga such as hatha, vinyasa and ashtanga. 

Yin and Yang are concepts that govern all of life, yet stem from ancient Taoist philosophy. Indian yogis also held such concepts when they referred to hatha yoga - Ha (sun) Tha (Moon). 

Yin Yoga is a slow, mainly floor based practice where poses are held from 2 - 20 minutes. This style of practice brings immense physical, energetic and mental healing as we work with the Meridian system from Traditional Chinese Medicine.
