YIN YOGA TEACHER TRAINING RETREAT

August 8-12 2019

Retreat to a small town feel, get away, and get inspired! Daily Yoga, Qi Gong, Tai Chi, Meditation practices, and healthy meals restore your energy for in-depth study with a sense of humor. Enjoy evidence-based lecture sessions and hands-on training of Yin Yoga, a practice gaining momentum around the country. Located at the Historic Betsey Mills Club, walking distance from hotels, a riverside park and walking path, coffee shops, and restaurants. 

Explore the underlying theory of the Yin practice, and gain practical tools and confidence in leading Yin Yoga classes. Learn all about fascia, its unique properties, and how to safely target and train it. Understand the larger concept of exercise and how to bring awareness to different tissues in our practice. Examine variations of the major poses of a Yin practice to safely guide students with confidence.

Our Location:
