Yin Yoga Teacher Training Level Two (20 hours)
THE NERVOUS SYSTEM, THE CHAKRAS + CREATING SPACE
With Megan Moss Freeman + special guest Joe Barnett
Sign-Up + pricing through Kaia Yoga.
In this next level Yin Yoga Training (hybrid online/in-person) we’ll continue to explore our skeletal differences through practice and discussion, this time focusing a bit more on postures for the the upper body. During our in-person session on Saturday, May 14th at Kaia Yoga's New Canaan location we will experiment with some creative chair and wall variations, in addition to assisted yin yoga techniques when working one-on-one with someone.
The big, overall focus of this training will be looking at how yin yoga can be used as a tool to balance our nervous systems. We'll look at Polyvagal theory and learn techniques to stimulate our vagus nerves and regulate our nervous systems within a yin practice. We will also explore how intimately our nervous and energetic systems are intertwined, through the lens of the chakras, another map of the body we can overlay on top of what we learned in Level 1. Joe Barnett, longtime student and assistant to yin yoga pioneer Paul Grilley, will be joining us virtually to share a Yin Yoga and Chakra Meditation practice along with his invaluable insight on yin yoga and skeletal variations. Bring your questions!!
As always there will be plenty of time for personal practice and discussion of all things Yin. If I can't answer your question I will gladly point you in the right direction. Always happy to share my resources. The idea is to offer ideas and perspectives that might spark interest/insight. This training is geared towards those who have already taken a Level 1 Yin Training with me, however, it is open to all!
Join live on Zoom (suggested if possible!) or watch a recording if you can't make it of the following modules:
