Yin Yoga Training Intensive

20hr weekend immersion

Yin, Yang, and Mindfulness Methods

November 14-17, 2019

Pilates & Yoga Loft
New Orleans (Metairie), Louisiana


Yin Yoga is a transformative and rejuvenative practice that seeks to mindfully lengthen and lubricate the connective tissues by practicing the methods of stillness, mindfulness, and loving kindness. This practice is an opportunity for neuroplastic molding of the rest and digest function of your brain, empowering practitioners to beckon the brain into a restful and restorative Theta Brain Wave state to increase immunologic function.

Radiating with ritual, this integrated wisdom practice is a tool to rise to your intrinsic baseline of tranquility, recall your innate ability for spaciousness, and remind your system of its unique anatomical, structural, and emotional wholeness.

This training will focus on the cultivation of an enriched Pranic field and an in-depth investigation of Buddhist Philosophical Principles- which we mingle with psychological self-inquiry and awareness practices in Yin Yoga Asanas. This course offers advanced anatomy and physiology, Yin & Yang Posture Clinics/Asana Labs, Restorative Yoga, Neuro-physiology of the Autonomic Nervous System, Traditional Chinese Medicine Meridians, and methods for routine mindfulness. 


We will weave in a special focus on three primary vital centers of the Chinese Meridian system: 

Earth Element | Water Element | Fire Element


Topics Covered

  • Methods of Mindfulness & Meditation

  • Yin Yoga: Principles, Anatomy, Asana 

  • Breath & Lines of Energy

  • Traditional Chinese Medicine Meridians & Organ health in Asana

  • Buddhist Principles, Philosophy, & Psychology

  • Mapping the Subtle Body

  • Surya Namaskar: Rhythm Repetition & Ritual, History & Foundations
