Yin Yoga Training is a special and unique journey to witness and know the experience of Yoga by coming to our own understanding of what Yoga is and what Yoga is not. Through the practice and teachings of great masters, the consciousness of Yoga is a direct transmission of the inner experience and the knowledge that evolves from that experience. Like any other contemplative practice, Yin Yoga stretches the mind as much as it stretches the body. It is the evidence-based practice of your own experience. One of the most significant benefits of Yin Yoga is learning to be with what is happening in the body in the present moment while learning the necessary skills to not react to whatever is arising.
