Yin is an essential complimentary practice to our regular vinyasa practice, as teachers we tire and become contracted if we only practice vinyasa, yin helps us to restore our energy by releasing stores up tension. As a teaching skill, it’s an essential in a one to one context; it helps students with increase their range of motion and those who are rehabilitating injuries. In yin we work more into the connective tissue and joints, stressing them to increase their health, this is tailored to the individual using our knowledge of anatomical variations.
Yin is a great second practice to teach in the evenings on a retreat. Another tool in the box!
There is a course manual that you'll be given, inside there is suggested reading for after the course in order for you to develop your knowledge. There is one book that I recommend to you too help you through the course.
The second edition of Bernie Clark’s, “The Complete Guide to Yin Yoga”
You don’t have to read beforehand, in some ways it’s better not to. The concepts are easier to understand once we cover them on the course. By all means feel free to dip into the book but don’t be too concerned if you don’t grasp some of it.

If you cancel, the deposit of £200 is non-refundable but is transferable to a course within the next two years. A place will only be held once a deposit is paid. If you’d like to spread the payments. Please get in touch and together we can create a bespoke plan.
In terms of covid, it’s a bit of an unknown but it appears extremely likely that by November we’ll be in a position for the course to take place. However if it cannot take place there will be a full refund or the option to take a place on a rescheduled course. My preference is not to take it online as it’s an in person experience, it’s like being on a retreat.
