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.
