200HOUR HIMALAYAN YIN YANG TEACHER TRAINING

HIMALAYAN YIN YANG - 200 HOUR

Yin Yang Yoga is a more dynamic combination of active and passive postures than Yin Yoga and highlights both movement within stillness and stillness within movement - a Yin approach to Yang movement. Yin Yang Yoga together form one of the most wholesome and non-dogmatic approaches to contemporary yoga practices all over the world. This style of Yoga honours the root of hatha – the solar and the lunar, the masculine and the feminine along with action and allowing.
The ‘dance’ of these complementary, interdependent opposites produces a holistic, mindful yoga practice that reduces wear and tear in the tissues, balances strength and integrates flexibility and freedom. The student receives a sustainable way of moving and using the body, balancing the brain and calming the mind for meditation. This approach to yoga practice and teaching helps develop the unity, compassion and consciousness needed to be fully human.
