The pendulum of Yoga’s diverse offerings in the West now regularly includes the slower, introspective breeds of yoga & mindfulness practices. Yet we modern beings are so often drawn down the YANG path of action in these 24/7 times we live in whether willingly or because that’s “how it is” — often doing and accomplishing more and more – yet overlooking key moments to slow down, drop in, and refill our own wells.

YIN Yoga serves as a powerful antidote to address the demands and pace of The 21st Century Digital Age.
Over our two weekends together we’ll gather for this 30-Hour Yoga Alliance CEU YIN Yoga Teacher Training to explore The Art of Deceleration. In the first weekend we’ll review YIN’s foundational elements and benefits by practicing the key traditional asanas, modifications & breathing techniques. During the second weekend we will cover a spectrum of pertinent topics to strengthen the understanding & articulation of each subjects’ relevance in language, mood and delivery, with a relevant practice session during the second weekend’s curriculum topics.

This training is for Yoga Teachers who currently have a minimum of 200+ yoga training hours or are in a 200-hour certification program now. To receive a Certificate of Completion at the end of the YYTT it is understood you’ll attend all 30 hours, so please make every effort to arrange your schedule accordingly. If less than 30 hours are completed your certificate will reflect the specific hours you did attend noted as continuing education hours (CEU) vs. a Certificate of Completion.

Curriculum overview:

• Yin Yoga’s Taoist & Indian Roots – Historical Origin & Lineage
• “New Anatomy” Roots — Fascial anatomy, its relationship to YIN Yoga, and to overall well-being
• Human Biology – Bones, the nervous system (parasympathetic nervous system & sympathetic nervous system) & the endocrine system (glands & hormones)
• Taoist/Chinese Traditional Medicine (TCM), including an overview to Yin/Yang theory and Five-Element theory pertinent to meridian studies
• Mindfulness/Metta roots – Meditation traditions and their relationship to YIN Yoga

$575 Early bird pricing goes until January 1, 2020 ; $650 thereafter.

About Your YYTT Teachers: Liza Dousson, Sean Going, Lac, MacOM & Derek Cook:
Liza left the corporate world in 1999, following the strong beacon of Yoga running concurrently in her life…and never looked back. After completing a White Lotus Yoga Training in Santa Barbara, CA and some teach time in Boston, Yoga (and Love!) led her to India & South East Asia for 7 years of cultural immersion, study & the art of slowing-it-down. In 2008 she began dedicating her teaching style exclusively to Yin Yoga. She wrote & self-published her eBook YIN Yoga: The Art of Deceleration in an Amp’d Up World in 2016. In October 2018 she released a new online 8-class audio educational program titled From Roots to Sky: A Sojourn of Yoga, Pranayama & Dharana. Liza leads regular classes, workshops, retreats & trainings and has been a part of summer yoga festival offerings including Wanderlust Yoga & Music Festivals since 2013 and the Maine Yoga Fest. She returns to the Far East when possible for further Yoga, Thai Yoga & Medical Qi Gong studies. Since 2004 Liza has assisted Angela Farmer when Angela teaches at the Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health.
