YIN YOGA Teacher Training featured at Fire Shaper
Celebrate the “Heart of Yoga” and open to Presence!
Yin Yoga is the practice of slow, still and exploratory poses that are carefully chosen and executed to gently open our joints, cartilage, and ligaments. Yin creates space, peace, meditation, calm, and presence. YIN YOGA takes you to an edge, in a slow, juicy kind of way while remaining engaging and challenging. Learn to teach this more feminine side of yoga asana to a refined playlist of world beats, while delving deep into the techniques of aromatherapy using the finest quality, small-batch Essential Oils.
This YIN training has been broken down into two separate modules. Although they are designed to be incorporated together for a complete understanding some teachers may find particular aspects of the training more to their needs than others. We suggest attending both Weekends for a total immersion. The training totals are 15 hours for each module (10 contact, 5 non). During your contact hours you will study and learn in the presence of Darlene deepening your knowledge and understanding. During your non-contact time you will study materials assigned to you and possibly assist in one or more of Darlene’s “Bliss Out” Yin sessions being offered at Fire Shaper. The mix of knowledge and experience is amazing and essential in furthering your skills and gifts in the teaching of Yin style. Our top talented graduates may then be selected to teach Fire Shapers Hot Yin class coming soon to a studio near you.

ABOUT THE MODULES:
MODULE 1: Training Module
This Yin Training is a unique way to deepen your practice, your teaching and journey into the more subtle, less obvious energies in the body. We will explore classic YIN POSTURES, discuss reading materials, practice leading Yin sessions; learning how to use props and how to incorporate Yin into a Vinyasa Class. The most common poses will be explored in detail, with variations, options and humor!
There are about a dozen poses and their variations. You will learn how to get into them and out of them, how you use blocks, straps and blankets… Joints, meridians and organ knowledge as well as how to move the class smoothly and seamlessly to deliver a complete experience to your students.
You will learn the names of the postures, how to organize and conduct a class. These are the absolute essentials to guiding a Yin Style Yoga class.
Yin Yoga is fun to teach since it is the less linear, more feminine side of yoga, and you can do some of the postures with the students. We will explore psychological, energetic, and the mental/emotional connections.
This is a 15 hour continuing education training that can be used for Yoga Alliance continuing education. We have an additional 15 hour continuing education training being hosted on a separate weekend where we will explore the following in much more detail:
Module Focus Points:
- Anatomy & Physiology
- Props and their use

MODULE 2: AROMA Module
