Are you interested in Neurofascial and Neuromuscular science? In the connection between spirituality and science? Of how to work with tension? Of connective tissue? Intrigued by energy work? The embodiment and healing yoga? How to use yoga to increase life quality and the building of muscular strength? Is meditation appealing to you but are too restless?
Then this training is something to consider for you. You don’t have to be a teacher or even want to teach yoga to benefit from this training. Yet for those of you who wish to deepen your yoga practice and teaching, it will be very fruitful in many ways.
This training is focusing on the art of Yin Yoga; the practice of how to de- tensify in order to re-sensify.
Why? So, we can live stronger, more alive, better restored, not so edgy, more wholesome, clear, solid and powerful in body, mind and spirit.
This training is designed by Ulrica Norberg, a Master yogi from Sweden who has decades of experience from various yoga styles (yin yoga since 2000), meditation and personal growth from various fields and traditions. She highly respect and honor her teachers and the founders of the modern yin development yet adds her experience in working more individually to adapt the yoga practice to be more about the individual than the group. Focusing more on what one needs instead of the “wants”.
Ulrica is always up to date in the modern research and fuses that with her deep studies of yoga and philosophy. She has taught Yinyoga since 2006 and this year she has updated her yin training to be even more transparent and solid. This yinyoga approach was molded out of experience and in dialogue with Alan Finger and it merged perfectly into ISHTA yoga.
The Individual Approach to Yin Yoga
This training explore asana from the yinside, by waying In awareness of the subtle connection between body and mind from a more individualized perspective. Practicing Yin yoga with a more individual approach on yin yoga, means we search for tension and when found, we apply the appropriate tools for that individual to release the tension in the fascia, so mobility, circulation and muscular connection activates again.
In this approach to yin yoga the yin practice is led to be a great complementary practice to any “yang” oriented practice, as preparation for meditation, tension reducing, mind strengthening, relaxation, preparation for pranayama and more vigorous practices and as a great way of balancing the inner and outer aspects of living. In the first module we explore yin from a more ground level and look at how to begin a home practice.
Topics taught in this training:
Learn the foundations of Yin Yoga, including: The Art of the Yin practice, Energetic Alignment, Individuality, Subtle and Physical Anatomy, Pranayama and Kriyas. Focus is on how to start a personal Yinyoga practice.
