The Yoga Alliance accredited teacher training course offers participants an introduction to Acupressure in Yin Yoga & Hip Anatomy.

The 50-hour course will include elements of both theory and practice.

AcuYin is a practice that combines Yin Yoga, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TMC) and Acupressure. During the course, we will learn about many of the most important acupressure points and their properties in TCM. We will deepen our knowledge of the anatomy of the hips and use asana positions from the Yin yoga repertoire.

(AcuYin is the trademark of the Jo Phee Yinspiration yoga school and this course follows its methodology.)

AcuYin - Acupressure in yoga

Acupressure, originating from ancient China, is based on the principle of activating acupuncture points on meridians, which correct Qi imbalance. Activating specific points on the meridians facilitates local pain reduction, and combining it with the practice of yin yoga will help release physical tension and unblock stagnant energy in the body. During the course, we will learn about the most important acupressure points relating to energy channels (meridians) and the Five Transformations cycle from Chinese Medicine. We will learn the properties of acupressure points and their exact location so that we can skillfully conduct AcuYin classes ourselves.

Yin Yoga

Yin yoga uses gentle, relaxing postures to relieve tension, increase breath awareness and develop mindfulness.

This is a slow practice, so most sessions only include a few poses. By maintaining one position for longer, practitioners can use their hands or acupuncture to stimulate acupressure points, improving the flow of 'Qi'.

Hip Anatomy (II)

Yin yoga classes focus on the hips, this is due to the six lower meridians, which are Yin in nature. During the course, we will explore the anatomy of the hips, their structure and functional use during the practice of Yin asanas.

After completing the entire course, participants will receive a YA certificate and a study manual for practice.
