Friday, August 27, 6-9pm

Sunday, August 29, 2-8:30pm (30 min break) 

We will spend the weekend exploring the postures of yin yoga, the physical, mental, and energetic benefits of this style of practice, and the anatomy necessary to understand how different bodies create different shapes. We will look more closely at Paul Grilley's "Functional Approach to Yoga" and how it works with the teachings of both yin and yang asana.

The weekend is open to both current and aspiring yoga teachers, as well as enthusiastic students who wish to spend the weekend immersed in all things Yin. You’ll leave this weekend with the foundation and ability to guide yourself and your students safely and effectively into a wide variety of yin poses.
