Yoga Alliance accredited teacher training course offering participants an introduction

to Traditional Chinese Medicine & Hip Anatomy.

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

Traditional Chinese Medicine & Hip Anatomy (I) is a practice that combines two arts, Yin Yoga and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TMC). During the practice, we will stimulate energy channels that, according to TMC, transport the life energy Qi. We will deepen our knowledge of the anatomy of the hips and use asana positions from the Yin yoga repertoire.

Traditional Chinese Medicine

Practicing Yin Yoga helps us move energy through the body to bring it back into harmony. One of the unique aspects of Yin yoga is the inclusion of the body's energy lines, called meridians. These are similar to the concept of Nadis from traditional yoga philosophy. In the course we will look at the 12 main meridians according to Taoist meridian theory, what happens when they are out of balance and how you can implement them in your yin yoga practice for your well-being.

(Yin Yoga and Traditional Chinese Medicine is the trademark of the Jo Phee Yinspiration school of yoga and this course follows its methodology.)

Yin Yoga

Yin yoga, due to its uniqueness, is gaining more and more circles of yoga enthusiasts. Its meditative, calming, and perhaps even therapeutic effects are wonderful for many modern practitioners. The very popular practice of Yin Yoga can be both a perfect complement to more dynamic forms of movement and a very rich practice in itself.

Anatomia Bioder

Hip Anatomy (I)

There are six lower body meridians, often considered to be more yin in nature, which begin or end at the feet, and six yang meridians, which begin or end at the hands.

 

If you've ever wondered why Yin yoga classes focus so much on the hips, it's specifically for this reason: the lower six meridians are yin in nature, so they can be accessed through hip-opening poses.

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