50HR Yin Yoga Module

Healing new and old injuries while preventing new ones, finding and enjoying an increased range of motion, eradicating chronic pain while also experiencing the profound emotional mental and energetic changes that happen alongside these physical benefits- is what makes Yin Yoga so highly sought after.

Our ability to tap into, and work specifically with, the not-so-elusive prana, or vital life force, in the body is what is responsible for these amazing results. Simply holding a pose for a longer period of time is not enough. You can help others learn how to directly work with prana and in this weekend we will show you how!

During this training you will learn how to work with each person’s individuality to reach and open both their awareness as well as the deep connective tissues of their body – effectively opening the channels of prana, unleashing its transformational and deeply healing abilities. Come and discover the true potency this practice provides- and perhaps, more importantly, how to effectively share it with others.
