Teaching is sharing the knowledge of experience. Let's cultivate an understanding of yoga and let's live that understanding. Let the teaching be our life example. What we say and what we do after this is teaching yoga. My intentions are not only to deepen our understanding through dialogue and practice but also I want everyone to come home feeling amazing, strong and healthy, calm and clear, fresh and energized, motivated to continue this sacred practice of Yoga which seems to be a valid well source of our potential.

Joe Barnett Yin Yoga Teacher Training

OPEN TO THE PUBLIC! 

(This intensive is for our Hatha Yoga Teacher Training students.)


More  and more teachers and practitioners are exploring Yin Yoga. This is a  natural reaction to what has become an extremely yang health culture.  Yin yoga is the relaxed practice of floor postures for three to five  minutes at a time. A yin practice emphasizes the connective tissues of  the hips, thighs, pelvis and lower spine. It prepares the body and mind  for longer meditation practices. By drawing the student’s awareness away  from the muscles and deeper into the bones a deep level of relaxed  focus is achieved.
 

THIS TRAINING IS OPEN TO STUDENTS, NONTEACHERS,  AND TEACHERS. YOU DO  NOT HAVE TO BE A STUDENT OF THE YOGA UNIVERSITY  TO ATTEND THIS TRAINING.


Dates:

  • Part 1: Foundations: Teaching a Practice of Surrender **December 11-13, 2019, Wednesday, Thursday, & Friday
  • Part 2: Understanding Alignment, Functional and Organic: **December 13 - 15, 2019 Saturday, Sunday & Monday 

Because of the expense of a teacher training and yoga immersion, all monies are non-refundable.
