THE YIN WAY
This Yin Yoga Teacher Training Program offered by Nico Luce is an immersion into the practices of slowing down, softening and being held in poses; an exploration of the connective tissues of our body and their relationship to the whole; and a discovery of the fascinating ancient philosophy of the Tao Te Ching.
The yin practice offers a unique way to deepen our understanding of the subtle structures that hold our body together and properly stresses tissues rarely worked in a more active yang style of yoga.
This Yin yoga teacher training will give you the tools to create safe and sound yin and restorative sequences, develop a vocabulary in your mother language that accurately describes the wide range of sensations and feelings that arise when passively stretching, infuse your classes with theme and meaning, and hold space where the quality and energy within yourself can enrich and balance the experience of others. The peaceful, compassionate and allowing state of presence that heals all imbalances by just "being yourself".
