This Biodynamic Yin Yoga module is part of Sacred Chill’s “Art of Chill” series: An Immersion and Self Care Experience for Yoga Teachers
Each module in this series will include the opportunity for teachers to be nourished and immersed in the practice as a student first. Teachers will leave with clear ways to cultivate a home practice. Additionally, expect to walk away from each module ready to incorporate into flow classes or teach as a stand-alone class.
This is part of Sacred Chill West’s CEU program, designed to give teachers who currently hold a 200/500-certification additional tools to create chill space for self and students.
Many people come to yoga to get stronger or gain flexibility in their physical bodies. For some, that gives way to a sense that there is more to the practice than the body. Through the practice of yin yoga, we can connect to the subtle body or to that “something” we can’t quite touch even though we feel its impact in the physical realm, this pranic field. Yin yoga, specifically biodynamic, offers opportunities to process emotions, release tension, and find clarity on the mat. The result is often a more integrated connection to the self and a profound sense of wellbeing.
Biodynamic Yin Yoga is a subtle and chill practice that requires a different teaching skill set than more active styles. Yoga teachers of all traditions are invited to attend this training in order to learn more about this nurturing, nourishing style of yoga that is beneficial for students at all levels.
