Exploring the 7 Archetypes of a Yin Practice - Befriending the Teacher Within

This module is part of our 300-hour yoga teacher training certification.

During the yin module, your days will be shaped by theory, practice and interactive conversation - shining a light on the functional approach to yin postures. Each of us are different - both skeletally and muscularly - which can alter the experience of a pose from one body to another. During this module, we celebrate these differences using posture variations, props and visualisations. So we can enhance our individual experience of asana through feeling and breath, as opposed to aesthetics.

We'll dive deeply into the 7 archetypes of yin yoga (based on Paul Grilley's functional approach), gaining an advanced understanding by breaking down each posture one by one. As the week progresses we'll layer these learnings with use of intention within a teaching environment - including meditation, theming and music - to help us dive deep and settle in.

In this class we will explore different aspects of the Vishudda Chakra. The throat chakra is often thought of as the gateway between the body and the mind.

This chakra is known as the communication centre, and covers ideas such as speech, silence, hearing, understanding, expression, creativity, hunger and appetite, body language and finding your inner voice

The class will incorporate pranayama that will assist in balancing the Vishuddha, a range of asana to activate and energise the throat region and use of the tibetan singing bowls that resonate at frequencies which induce sensations of calmness and ease.

There will be a mix of asana, meditation and a long relaxation. There won't be any overly challenging asana or balance poses, this is a workshop encouraging internal integration and moving to trust your body and senses.

We'll take an in-depth look at consent, approach, and the ethics of touch in the context of a yoga class.
