100hr Yin Yoga Teacher Training - Meridians & Functional Anatomy with Nicky Hadjithoma
This 100-hr Yin Yoga Teacher Training is a comprehensive programme designed for teachers and practitioners interested in understanding the fundamental theory behind yin yoga - including the groundbreaking anatomic theories of skeletal variation and the energetic principles rooted in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).
Each day will begin with an experiential yin yoga practice, allowing students to immerse fully into this holistic practice whilst offering insights into the many ways to theme and sequence a class.
The anatomy component of this training will focus on studying bone morphology of the hips. Interactive anatomy labs will be set up for students to carry out range-of-motion tests and to analyse anatomical variations and individual biomechanics. From here, we will learn how to skilfully apply our observations and insights into pose modifications to accommodate all body types.
To support the theoretical lectures and discussions, teaching labs will provide the opportunity to skilfully apply these functional principles into practising and teaching individualised yoga.
This highly engaging and thought-provoking training will change the way you practise and teach yoga forever – leaving you with a thirst to understand even more about human variation and how it applies to all styles of yoga.
Graduates of this Yin Yoga Teacher Training will not only understand the various theories behind this beautiful practice but will also leave with the necessary skills to teach a thoughtful and competent yin yoga class. The training will be split into three parts:
- Theory and Practice of Yin Yoga
- Functional Anatomy focusing on the hips
- Meridians in Yin Yoga (TCM fundamentals)
Students who attend 100% of the training will receive a 100hr Yin Yoga Teacher Training certificate, from Yintelligence School of Yin & Functional Yoga. These training hours can be added towards your Continuing Education with the Yoga Alliance.
This training is designed to provide a comprehensive foundation in all theoretical and energetic aspects of yin yoga. Upon completion, you will have gained the most essential skills necessary to confidently teach yin yoga to all levels.
