Yin Yoga Immersion: Foundational Training 

with MisakoMatsuoka

Yin Yoga is a transformative practice for the body and mind. The passive long held but gentle postures allow releasing of long held tightness in the deep tissues of the body while recharging the energetic systems. The Yin practice invites the mind inward into a contemplative meditative state, encourages the balance of effort and ease without strain, and promotes deep connection to the present moment. It is a much needed healing practice for our modern lives.

This training will provide you with the foundations of Yin Yoga. You will understand how to include Yin Yoga in a more active class or simply to take your own practice to a much deeper level. Class size is limited to ensure you will have plenty of time for individual attention. This training provides 12 hours of continuing education credit for registered yoga teachers. For those who would like to receive a certificate of completion for teaching Yin Yoga, this is the first twelve hours of a 36 hour training with Misako Matsuoka.
