Teachings and practices for developing and integrating the energetic and psychological domains within us.

A 30-hour YA registered intensive. A Secondary Level training for Insight Yoga Institute students, yet open to all others as well (see prerequisites below).

This course is for Yin practitioners and teachers who want to use the Yin yoga session as a doorway for developing the subtle body, Mindfulness practices and psychological inquiry. We highly recommend returning to these inner body teachings again and again.

Prerequisite:
As we consider this a Secondary Level training, when registering you will be asked to select from a drop down list the date/location of the Primary training that you attended.

In order to receive the YA 30 hour Certificate of Completion, attendance in the entire program is needed along with a brief essay sharing your experiences with the material. Please do not miss any hours and plan your time accordingly.

Course Description
Yin yoga encourages holding floor poses for long periods to enhance the Qi or energy distribution through the fascia, organs, and bones. Restoring the flow of Qi within us has a direct impact on our psychological states, encouraging increased ease of being, a foundation for authentic meditation to occur. After we have established a clear understanding of how and why to practice Yin yoga (as we do in the Primary Level training), we can begin to look more closely at the pranic and mind training aspect available to us while in the practices, which is what this retreat will emphasize.

In this course, we will NOT focus on how and why to practice Yin Yoga (assuming you already know these things), INSTEAD we will explore the inner methods; various breath patterns and retentions, visualizations for the health of the organs, contemplations in the poses, as well as the essential methods of Buddhist Mindfulness.

Each day will include a talk, yin yoga session with inner practices emphasized, seated meditation practices focusing on the Four Foundations of Mindfulness, as well as interactive diads and discussion time.

Study and Reading
Acquiring an intellectual understanding of the rich diversity of Yoga and Buddhism can inspire one’s dedication to the path of awakening; it also fosters a clear level of communication and discussion with others.

Students will be provided a reading list with your acceptance into the training and are asked to read the books assigned for this training before the first day of training. Readings from these books are an integral part of the training so please order the materials upon receipt of the reading list so you have ample time to read them before the training begins.

A digital training manual will be provided on the first day of the training.

As there will be partner work throughout the week, we need a clear understanding of who will be present so that we can assign Zoom breakout groups.

At the end of each day (time depending on when Zoom downloads to us) you will receive access to the live recording. The recordings will be available to you for 7 days. Please view the recordings of the time you missed as close to the time they occurred as possible to prepare for the next day’s training.
