100 Hour Yin Yoga Teacher Training,Guatemala
I love the authenticity of every teaching offered throughout this training. Amanda is a honey pot of knowledge and offers her experience in such a beautiful, empowering way.
It's hard to put on finger one what I loved most about this training but one thing that will stay with me throughout my journey is the empowerment, sense of ownership and knowledge of self that Amanda embodies and encourages for her students.
This will be a message I carry through my teaching and life.
The structure of the course is very well organized, makes sense and flows perfectly. The Mindfulness section, neuroplasticity and the trauma-sensitive parts were eye-opening and enlightening.
These sections apply to way more than only yoga.
LOVED how Amanda described and conveyed the message/points.
She articulates it well, makes sense, enjoyable and easily accessible to anyone.
In this 100 Hr Yin Yoga Teacher Training you will be immersed in theory, practice, ideating intentional sequencing as well as indulging in conversation & self-exploration, helping you obtain a functional and relatable understanding of the yin practice as a whole.
This course is for beginners with an already existing yoga practice as well as for the more seasoned practitioners looking to either deepen their own experience or begin their journey as a teacher.
Over the course of the 100 Hr Yin Yoga Teacher Training you will gain knowledge and experience in:
- Anatomy for Yoga; understanding unique individuality of human beings and translating this into not only yin yoga but our day-to-day practices. You will be introduced to functional anatomy, the fascial system, muscle groups and target areas, asana (posture) breakdowns and the art of propping.
- Trauma-informed ways of teaching; understanding the emotional depth that is involved with this sacred practice and honouring everyone’s personal experience and practice. You will gain a general understanding of the mental and emotional health considerations that may arise as well as what is appropriate in your scope of practice.
- Neuroplasticity, mindfulness and pranayama; We will explore the power of conscious, mindful breathing and how we can restructure thoughts, patterns and beliefs on a neurological level. You will also gain insight into the ways in which breathing may impact physical, mental, energetic and emotional health through anatomy and physiology.
- Teaching Responsibly; teaching from the heart while understanding the great responsibility you hold. You will gain practical experience in holding space for others mentally, emotionally and energetically but also keeping yourself and the student’s safe while practicing yin yoga. We will explore things like communication, propping, sequencing and other components that make a strong teacher.
