Set on the magical Amorgos island, Greece you will no doubt feel the beautiful energy and be inspired to learn, surrounded by nature and the Aegean sea. This is a 10 days training program where you will study in detail the fundamentals of yin yoga and how to safely teach yin yoga classes. Yin yoga postures will be studied and practiced in detail, taking in consideration modifications, contraindications and of course the benefits of each of the postures. By the end of this training, you will be able to structure your yin yoga sequences and be able to provide a balanced and complete yin yoga class. There will be daily pranayama and meditation sessions where you can learn to develop consistency in the yogic breathing techniques and focusing the mind. We will go through the definition of meditation from a yoga philosophy standpoint and we will also study and practice various techniques of concentration/meditation, so that you can learn how to guide a meditation session.
